Square Enix recently released the transcript of its financial results, outlining the plan for fiscal year 2016. CEO Yosuke Matsuda explained the company’s IP policies, stating that the company plans to strengthen and reboot existing IPs.
First is to strengthen and reboot our existing IPs. We would like to focus on how to utilize the numerous assets of content that we have nurtured so far, and apply them to the latest trend. As for the platform, we would like to use consoles and smart devices in parallel. Just focusing on one platform is not enough. We believe it is significant to serve both platforms, if we are to offer game content and services that appeal to the new generation.
Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, tried to get some information from the publisher regarding their E3 conference and the Square Enix representative responded with the following:
“At this year’s E3, we’ll have our own conference for the first time after two years, where we’ll deliver to everyone the rich line-up of the Square Enix Group. What we’re going to show off at E3 is unprecedented in the history of Square Enix, with a strong line-up in which each can be considered a centerpiece.
Since we plan to stream the conference live, it’ll be at night [in Japan], but please watch it!”
The publisher promises their biggest line-up ever for E3 2015, so we can expect to see more of the already announced titles, and have a lot of new announcements and surprises. We will bring you any new information from Square Enix and E3 2015 as soon as it becomes available.
