Yosuke Matsuda has provided some comments in regards to financial troubles plaguing Square Enix, the company responsible for publishing the upcoming “Final Fantasy XV” and “Kingdom Hearts 3” video games. According to a report by Dual Shockers on Oct. 4, the new president stated that the “delay from development” was one of the factors behind their losses.
Yosuke Matsuda explained that delaying a project reduces the communications from developers to fans. As a result, the company decided to urgently establish a method in order to improve interactions with consumers. You can check out several screenshots from “Final Fantasy XV” and “Kingdom Hearts 3” in the slideshow near the top of this article and the comments from the president of Square Enix below (courtesy of Dual Shockers):
In fact, one of the factors behind our losses is a delay from development to the market. That delay means a reduction in the frequency of the contact with the users. We need to establish a system that will meet the needs of our customers in a more timely manner. Not quite so leisurely, and with one-year terms. We have to enact urgent changes.
“Final Fantasy XV” is one of the titles that suffered from a long delay. The action role-playing game was announced as “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” in 2006. Since the project was being developed by the same team responsible for the mainline titles of the “Kingdom Hearts” series, its troubling production may have also pushed back plans for “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
Both upcoming video games are slated to be released on the PS4 and Xbox One next-generation systems. Although “Final Fantasy XV” and “Kingdom Hearts 3” are still in the early stages of development, Square Enix promised to update fans more frequently about the progress of the projects.
