Square Enix’s board was asked during the company’s 43rd Annual Shareholders’ Meeting about plans to remaster some of its older games following the success of Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster.
“Final Fantasy I-VI Pixel Remaster was well received. Are there plans to remaster other older titles? Personally, I would like to play Xenogears,” asked one shareholder.
A Square board member responded: “We will refrain from sharing information about new titles, but we are considering several ideas within the company and hope you will wait for the next announcements.”
It was also asked why Square has “longer gaps between game releases” compared to other companies and what the board’s plans were on the release schedule for upcoming major games.
“I will refrain from going into detail, but I will say that we believe strengthening our internal development organization will be beneficial as the difficulty of developing major titles is becoming extremely high, which also has implications for development timelines. We hope that this strengthening of our organization will promote the development of not only these titles, but also new IPs under the new management team,” said a board member.
Later this year, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai – Infinity Strash, Star Ocean: The Second Story R and Dragon Quest Monsters: The Dark Prince are planned, while Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth arrives in early 2024.
