Square Enix Fiscal Reports Revealed: Final Fantasy XIV Being Blamed For The Losses And Its PS3 Version May be Cancelled Already

Square Enix Fiscal Reports Revealed: Final Fantasy XIV Being Blamed For The Losses And Its PS3 Version May be Cancelled AlreadyA few days ago Square Enix has published 2010/2011 fiscal results report and fiscal year march 2012 planning, both being very interesting documents indeed. As of the fiscal results Square Enix suffered huge financial losses of 12 billion yen (~$148,4 million), which CEO Yoichi Wada blames on Final Fantasy XIV’s disastrous launch and reworking, along with a few other cancelled projects that were in development (about 4,5 billion yen). Wada has publicly admitted that “Our game development has become weaker than expected, revamping it will take one or two years.” Well, who could have possible imagined that taking a game developer with a long record of high-quality games and devouring its name by releasing high-priced, unplayable garbage time after time and showing this shit up everyone’s throats would finally lead to a crashing disaster? *sarcasm mode off* But, getting back to FF14 – everything bad and PS3 version may have already been cancelled: according to Squaer Enix 2012 planning it’s nowhere to be seen.

Once Final Fantasy XIV was a major PlayStation 3 release for Square Enix, but after PC version launch turned out to be a nightmare, PS3 version was postponed to an unknown length of time, supposedly, until PC version is reworked up to a playable level. Now, looking at Square Enix’s fiscal year march 2012 planning here, we can clearly see there’s no FF14 PS3 version release date anywhere:

This can only mean two things: either FFXIV PS3 version is being postponed until AFTER march 2012 (i.e. almost a year from now), or it’s being cancelled altogether. For me it seems unlikely that having such a drastic decline in revenue and having to cancel several projects that already were in development, Square Enix will keep to the promise of releasing another copy of the project that is partly to blame for these loses in the first place.

Unless new FFXIV development team (yes, they “shifted” the previous devs silently to ruin some other projects) and “the new producer guy” Naoki Yoshida manages to save the day until Square Enix’s top managers run out of money and close down the shop.
