Reduced sales forecasts indicate that Square Enix won’t be releasing the AAA title this coming year.
Square Enix recently revealed its financial report for the fiscal year ending on March 31st 2014 and while the publisher reported a $65 million profit, it also reduced its game sales forecast from 17.23 million in the previous year to 12 million for the coming fiscal year. What could that mean?
According to research analyst David Gibson on Twitter, it implies that Square Enix won’t be releasing many big games for the coming year – including Final Fantasy 15. “Square Enix forecast of game units falling to 12m implies no FF15 in the year ending Mar 2015.”
Given that Final Fantasy 15 is perhaps one of the biggest, if not the biggest, project over at Square Enix, it’s simply ludicrous to not factor it into sales forecasts – unless it indeed isn’t out in the next year. Square Enix hasn’t really revealed its line-up for fiscal year ending on March 31st 2015 aside from rumours of Hitman 6 and Deus Ex at E3 2014. For now though, chances are high that Final Fantasy 15 won’t be on it. Stay tuned for more information.
