Well they off, because MMOs are becoming a thing of the past. They have so much riding on FFXIV and it is pretty much a guaranteed failure.

Good. Square went down because they spent every penny they had making that terrible Final Fantasy movie that had no resemblance to anything Final Fantaasy, and Enix weaseled their way in there. Hopefully Enix goes down and someone who actually cares about making good games will jump in and turn things around.

Here's hoping for Squenix-Konami, or Squenix-Ubi in the near future.

Enix is the problem? ..... You sir are the dumbest person alive. Especially since when Square bought them out they were still on the forefront of DQ games and were redefining release dates for games in Japan because ever since DQ3 came out they can't release them on a weekday because the country shut down from so many people trying to get it. Not to mention all the tramplings, thefts, fights etc. over it >.>

merger


Enix being the larger aspect of the merger, especially after the Spirits Within debacle, which made them hesitant.
And the Enix founder being the largest shareholder of SE.

No. By the time the deal went through, Square stocks were traded at higher value than Enix stocks, with the square side taking more control of the company than Enix.
