Square Enix has released the latest fiscal report for the year that ended on March 31, 2014. According to a report from GameSpot on May 12, the company managed to earn a profit of $65 million over the past fiscal year due largely to the success of "Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn." " Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster," "Thief" as well as the re-releases of "Tomb Raider" also contributed to the profitability of the company. On the other hand, the publisher appears to be hinting that "Final Fantasy XV" won't be coming anytime soon.
According to Gaming Bolt, Square Enix decided to reduce the forecast of software sales for the fiscal year that is ending on March 31, 2015. Instead of 17.23 million units sold last year, the company is only projecting 12 million copies of software being sold by the end of next March. The prediction suggested that Square Enix won't be releasing any major titles, such as "Final Fantasy XV," for this fiscal year.
The mainline single-player game in the series, "Final Fantasy XIII," sold more than six million units alone. "Final Fantasy XV," which is based on the same Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology, was originally known as "Final Fantasy Versus XIII." Despite the mixed reaction from "Final Fantasy XIII," fans are still looking forward to the 15th main installment. Based on the latest fiscal report, they may be waiting for a long time.
Square Enix has not yet provided a formal release date window for "Final Fantasy XV" although it is looking likely that the software product won't be released until next April at the earliest. Hajime Tabata and Tetsuya Nomura is leading the development of the project, which was first confirmed during E3 2006, at Square Enix 1st Production Department.
