Why isn't Grandia IV announced yet?

Grandia IV should be announced.

All games sold a good amount of copies, did they not?

All games have an excellent battle system, great graphics for its time, and although not with the best story, all of the games are epic.

Why no Grandia IV? :'(

Because Grandia Extreme was thrown out in the middle of 2 and 3(i think). So it's technically a 4th game. It's a bit different than the others, but it's still a "Grandia" game.

^That was terrible reasoning
Hopefully it gets announced soon. Grandia is my favorite series, and I really want a 4th installment. Plus, it doesn't look like Game Arts is working on anything at the moment.

Story, gameplay, graphics, and soundtrack are all equally important in video games. Especially if a company spends a couple years developing one game.

How is that terrible reasoning? They've made 4 games in the Grandia series, so they might be taking their time on actually making Grandia 4. I'll be happy when they do actually announce it, but I'm a patient person and can wait.

I'd say yes, you just have to wait. Grandia is like... a never ending series. There's always room for new adventures and new characters, i won't be surprised if there was a new and better battle system as well.

Square is currently working on their promised titles, like the Final Fantasy series. The last grandia game they probably announced(or not) was grandia zero for the pc. Look it up, it's an online rpg.
I don't have much information about it but that could be the grandia 4 that some of you have been looking for.

nah :p

I'd much rather have an actual Grandia IV on the PS3 with gorgeous graphics, a long story (with NO plot holes this time -___-), gorgeous pre-rendered CG cutscenes and a great battle system.

It's all about the money. If the more recent Grandia games sold poorly, the chances of a new one coming out are very low.

Grandia 1: >400k (Saturn), >100k (PS1)
Grandia 2: >190k (DC), >50k (PS2)
Grandia Xtreme: ~250k(PS2)
Grandia 3: >235k (PS2)

These are all for Japan. The sales shouldn't be that much of a problem. With the exception of 1, every game sold about the same.

Except development costs have only gone up, especially for HD platforms. So I doubt we'll see Grandia 4 on 360 or PS3, but maybe the Wii...
