Former Squaresoft boss: The current Square Enix is in shambles, “no vision”
It does not look like Square Enix is following a proper procedure for releasing games as even the former president of Squaresoft has criticized the company of being clueless.
Final Fantasy fans like us kind of knew this from the beginning after the company messed up with Crystal Tools and are now fiddling with next-gen Luminous engine. They are still not being able to release Versus XIII as well, however, the company is stable now due to expansion into mobile gaming and that is good news overall.
Here’s what Suzuki Tweeted: “The merger was a complete failure. There’s no vision for the future.”
He also said that the development costs were through the roof and the the company had no idea of what it is doing. So is he wrong here? Not at all, actions speak for themselves and Square Enix has lost a lot of money with failed ventures on the Xbox 360 and not to mention has weakened their Final Fantasy brand.
Suzuki is no slouch though; he is now a Director at Sega, and a bunch of other things too, as Kotaku reports here.
