What’s the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 team doing now? Are they building up to a new game?
Monolith Soft, the team behind Xenoblade Chronicles 2, is on fire right now thanks to the success of the Xenoblade Chronicles franchise, which includes the prequel they just released in Torna – The Golden Country. But many are asking, what’s next? All indications are pointing to them making two games at the same time. So, to that end, they’re hiring more staff, and on their website, they outlined why. According to boss Tetsuya Takahashi, they want to make sure they have enough people to get stuff done, especially when some people are missing for one reason or another.
The primary production staff’s “motto” – if you will – is to be “the select few.”
And that isn’t changing, but there are limits to what we can do. Compared to other companies’ projects of similar scale, we get a lot done with quite a few people; every individual members’ responsibilities are clear, and there’s a payoff to that. That being said, however, there are things that are just out of our control – little issues that we can’t attend to as attentively. For instance, if somebody gets sick, the remaining team members in the office have to pick up their slack and compensate for it… Things like that.
But what comes next? No one knows…yet.
