SQUARE ENIX Results

In news semi-related to the story above, SQUARE ENIX HOLDINGS announces its financial results for their fiscal year that concluded on March 31st. The company explains its return to profitability thanks to strong performance of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIII-2, and its optimistic outlook for the future:

"During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, the Group's results were favorable due to increased sales of console games boosted by our major titles, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION (North America, Europe and Japan, in order of release) and FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 (Japan, North America and Europe, ditto), as well as continued expansion of content from growth areas such as the web and smartphones.

In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, we continued our efforts aimed at increasing profitability, including establishing best practices for the content in said growth areas, improving quality of our major online game, and strengthening our global structure. We are accelerating the reformation to generate a substantial earnings improvement in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013 and beyond."

Pretty much the entire FFXI community left to go to FFXIV when it came out, took one look at it and went straight back to XI (me included).

Is the re-tuning they are doing with FFXIV making any headway with the community? I just got an e-mail about their welcome back campaign, but haven't had the time to give it a look yet.

I'm not really sure and suspect not. The game was so half-baked on release it was almost totally raw. It needed like 3 years' work to be even reasonably decent.

Sadly, I doubt any game gets that kind of leeway in today's market.
