Final Fantasy Boss Explains Why He Stayed At Square Enix After Key Departure

In the video game industry, many people stick around with the company they’re attached to for quite a while for multiple reasons. They might just like the company they work at. Or, they might be trying to gain “higher ranks” there. Another reason might be they know that their talents or ideas might be more appreciated at that particular company because they’ve worked there for so long. But, on the other side of things, people sometimes depart gaming companies somewhat randomly, including because they want to “move on to a new challenge,” which is what the creator of Final Fantasy did after a while at Square before it became Square Enix.

Square Enix Producer Teases Bravely Default Related Announcement

Square Enix producer Tomoya Asano has teased fans about a potential announcement regarding the Bravely Default JRPG series for later this year. The first Bravely Default game was released as an exclusive for the Nintendo 3DS. It received generally favorable reviews, as it was a nostalgic revisit to the job-based systems seen in early Final Fantasy games, while also utilizing a unique turn system that featured the titular Brave and Default actions. It got a direct sequel, Bravely Second, a few years later, which was also released on the 3DS, introducing new jobs and continuing on from where the first game left off.

Sony May Have Made the Right Call Not Copying Xbox Game Pass with PS Plus | Push Square

For the best part of this generation, Sony’s been pressured by a vocal part of the gaming community to borrow Xbox Game Pass’ unproven business model with PS Plus. The platform holder eventually decided to take a half-step, merging PS Now with its existing subscription but resisting the urge to add day one first-party software to the service. It’s described this strategy as unsustainable.

Without a Physical PS5 Release, Alan Wake 2 Is Still Remedy's Fastest Selling Game | Push Square

Fans want a physical edition of Remedy’s horror sequel Alan Wake 2, but the critically acclaimed game isn’t exactly struggling on digital storefronts. The title has now sold 1.3 million copies worldwide, making it the fastest-selling title in the Finnish firm’s history. It previously reached one million units by the end of December 2023, so it looks like word of mouth has been good through the first two months of 2024.

Hiroki Totoki has a lot of titles at Sony; in addition to being president, COO, and CFO of the corporation, he's more recently stepped into the role of PlayStation chairman as Jim Ryan winds down his time at the company. He's among the company's top dogs, then — but what does he make of Sony Interactive Entertainment since he became more directly involved? Speaking on a recent earnings call, he seems happy with PlayStation's first-party teams, but has some concerns about the business side of things.

In case you missed it, Xbox's top dogs set live a podcast yesterday, publicly announcing the company's long-rumoured intention to bring a selection of first-party games to rival consoles. After so much noise around the subject, it hardly came as a surprise, but it's still a noteworthy shift in how the platform holder will handle its in-house titles going forward. While the messaging was kept fairly vague, we can get a touch more context from a company memo, sent from Phil Spencer to staff before the podcast's debut. It's now available to read in its entirety online.

But where Ubisoft has been quite bullish about this brave new world, Capcom is taking a more thoughtful approach, quietly considering a pricing review of its catalogue. Still, we don't get the feeling there will be any discounts incoming.
