Rumor: SquareEnix Prepping Another MMORPG, Not Final Fantasy
A Japanese gaming blog reportedly has information about SquareEnix working on another MMORPG for release this fiscal year. This game will not be Final Fantasy related, but it seems to be another experiment, of sorts, for the company in the realm of MMOs. Reportedly it is a large-scale RPG with heavy funding behind it. Might I remind you that the same could be said about Final Fantasy XIV, and that didn’t go over so hot when it was released (although your experience may vary).
If this is indeed true, let’s hope the company has learned its lesson from the mistakes that were made with FFXIV. Although the game is quite good now, in my opinion, there were still mistakes made at launch. If they end up developing and publishing another MMO, they will be maintaining three games of that genre simultaneously. I guess we’ll see where this goes, shall we?
