Ah dang I was hoping for sooner rather than later. Will still be nice to play forspoken then.

What?

The reasoning here is so stupid.

"In their fiscal presentation, the company outlined its plans for 2022 and beyond. In their presentation, the company suggested that it will be focused on releasing new IPs in their next year ending on March 31, 2022. This rules out games like Final Fantasy XVI or Dragon Quest XII."

But you know there is truth in these sentences.

It will be out 2021.

Their reasoning is ridiculous, but at the same time this is Squeenix we're talking about. I wouldn't expect this or Forspoken before 2022.

It makes absolutely sense. They would let their investor know early on for sure if they are going to release a Final Fantasy game, because they sell a lot ->generate revenue->advances the stock price.

For investors the whole point is predictability, not surprised. It’s not ready yet. Late 2022 sounds about right.

I disagree.

They rarely leak upcoming game releases in their fiscal release reports.

Especially if the game is one of the corner stones of sellment.

That's... certainly a way to interpret that.

Judging by how long these games take after Dwuare announces them, it doesn’t surprise me it’ll probably be a 2023 game if that. If it releases 2023 I can’t imagine when FF7 Remake Part 2 will get released assuming they don’t want their titles to compete for sales.

You really think that Square will have FF XVI in development for another 1-2 years after hit has entered it's 5th at the moment?
