That's bad, but nice to know FF14 wont be affected.

Now they should finish that fast and work on Versus!

It just the LA office so it not that big of a deal. Nothing of importance was lost. Now if this was Japan, then we would have something to worry about.

I feel bad for the people who lost their jobs. No doubt they lost jobs because their not as profitable.

Things arent going well for Square Enix these days....i wonder why

*cough* Final Fantasy XIII *cough*

FF14 actually. They sunk a lot of money into it, and put in even more to fix it. Then you have to look at FF13 and all else they've done yet ultimately failed like Front Mission, the Last Remnant or even the multiplayer Strider clone.

They haven't done a good job this whole console gen. Had to buy Edios just so they claim an honest success.

They also announce it's time to start shoe horning old games and 2D 3DS games onto IOS in an attempt to recoup some money, but lose yet even more respect..

I'm glad that people that own a tablet but never had a console can play FF3 Crono games tactics crystal defenders and a slew more of great SE games.

There's nothing wrong with being on all platforms.

Gonna try out the new FFXIV, its looking like they made some real changes. That should have been what they released first rather than that horrendous game they released.

Yep i keep hearing great things about that new mmo and shit judging from this cgi trailer it takes me back to vintage square:

I've been playing the alpha for about a week and I can tell you its a solid MMO I was very disappointed with the original launch and this game is light years better.

DigitalRaptor1319d ago (Edited 1319d ago )

If they don't re-announce Versus XIII early next year and show us an update, then I just have no idea what they're doing.

No signs of life for Final Fantasy X HD either. :/

I really agree hey i so want FFX HD arghhh.
