For Square-Enix, the quest to make fun and exciting games have long been their goal. At the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo, they showed off both new titles, and revitalized titles such as the Final Fantasy VII Remake. While some may be happy with this, other may be wondering what the priorities of the company is.
In it’s annual report, of which you can read in full here, Square-Enix revealed that though they are going to continue going forward with new and fresh ideas, they will be focusing just as much on revitalizing old IP’s to make them fresh and entertaining again.
“We will revitalize some of our strong IPs in ways that meet the needs of the modern gaming market,” Square Enix said in its annual report (via Polygon). “For example, we will take an IP developed for earlier generations of game consoles and recreate it for the latest consoles, while also proactively developing versions for play on smart devices.”
It is also worth noting, that Square-Enix is interested in virtual reality possibilities for not just new IP’s, but the revitalized ones as well:
“We want our longtime fans to relish reliving past experiences with a freshness that only the latest in technology can provide, while at the same time have new customers enjoy the IP as though it were brand new.”
