Square Enix announced higher income than expected thanks to older console games like NieR: Automata and MMORPGs like Final Fantasy XIV.
ffxiv is monthly sub based with a lot of pricy cosmetic cash shop stuffs like the 18$ glam sets that released this week, no wonder they make a lot of money of that, i see too many people roaming in my server with cash shops glams.
off course SE ...quality SP will be always successfull and when you dont try to copy western idiotic trends and just remain authentivc/original , success is guaranteed
This statement is comical beyond belief. Stay "authentic/original" huh? Given this game is a hilariously bad WoW with an FF skin on it. They couldn't even copy WoW properly, as they used their hilariously antiquated combat system; made a worse weekly lockout system than WoW; their dungeon finder is worse than WoW ; their progression system is worse than WoW, as everything you get is outdated in spectacularly short fashion to keep the drones mindlessly running the treadmill. I could go on, but I'd be here all day. However, thanks for the genuine laughs. "authentic/original" ;..... BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. /facepalm
Lol yeah man. The carbuncle glam and mount was more expensive than the actual expansion and a few months sub, and people eat it like cake!
Suprisingly the low budget, and very new game as Nier did amazing job and yet XV the 10 years of development game, did not even hit 10 millions althought its available on X1, Ps4, PC and supports 4K, HDR and FHD 60fps. SE and Tabata needs to listen to fans and stop making medicore experience and low fight set up like the ugliness of Levi fight and pathetic Ardyn fight. Furthermore, Tabata must stop to be stubborn and he confess that FFXV managment is so poor espeacily with unfinished story, cutting of contents like insomnia and so, and adding DLCs as low effort episodes that add nothing to core game. SE should had learnt from The Witcher 3 and how to do a great game. I excuse SE because they always have these die hard defenders for their underwheliming products, as example FFXIII, FFXV and FFNT defenders.
Wow there mate xD The title said Final Fantasy XiV(14), not Final Fantasy XV(15)
FFXV is doing fine, otherwise the DLCs would be canned and the team would move on. Chill.
Most of the game was already done when the witcher 3 came out Tabata cleaned up the managment, thats why the game was able to come out at all
probably why there are rumors of Nier2 coming to xbox finally.
where are these romours? i honestly havent see one, but seen ppl comment on here about it :/
original news source: http://www.jeuxvideo.com/ne... claiming multiple anonymous sources.
It will sell like 4 units Xbox users will see its not a multiplayer shooter and ignore it
Nier: Automata is a fantastic game. I have it for both Pro and PC. My GotY for 2017.
Then can we for the love of god get more creative ips like nier ?
Now support SWERY! We need more mastapieces! I'm also curious to see how left alive looks now.
Really liked nier and loving xiv.
Nier is one of the best games this generation. It needs to sell more, but over 1.4 million is great. Good job Square.
Platinum games deserves some praise. Nier Automata is at least in my top 5 games this gen without question
I loved nier! 😍. I hope they make a sequel or more in that style.
FF 14 is and will be SE biggest money maker...The glams and mount you can buy from the store is more than the whole expansion and sub lol and you will see people in reddit and in game going crazy about it.
Well, they do have one of the dumbest player bases in FF XIV, which definitely guarantees them massive profit. Recycle the same copy / paste update system for the past 5 years, then bend people over in their MugStation cash shop. I mean really, why not just start demanding people pay for their electric bill, and janitorial services while they're at it? I'm sure this tidal wave of morons that pay into this trash will be more than happy to.
Quite impressive. An outsourced game in Nier Automata, and a game with a perpetual cash flow, made better-than-expected income for them. I'd sure love to see some undoctored numbers on the 10 year long developed FF XV which was in the bargain bin after about 90 days. I know SE has claimed it made profit, which is such a blatantly stupid lie to save face, it practically slaps you. When was the last game this company made in-house, at SE Japan, that actually did well? Last one I can remember, was probably Final Fantasy XII. Everything else worth mentioning from these guys has been either outsourced, licensed, or an acquisition of a competent studio.
FFXV has sold over 7 million now http://gearnuke.com/final-f... This was also before the PC version came out.
Cool story bro, where's FF7-remake?
