With Square Enix’s western RPG proving a hot topic this week, CEO Yoichi Wada has promised more in the way of original IPs over the next few years.
“Regarding yet unannounced IPs, we should certainly be able to announce 2 to 3 titles to everyone within a few years,” the exec said in a financial briefing (via Siliconera). “With a requirement that an IP has to be capable of making a continuous profit contribution, we are aiming to establish 10 IPs.”
A pat on the back for new IPs then. Square still has a bunch of exciting projects to look forward to at the moment, most of which involve Western IPs.
