Square Enix has just announced that they are working on a new RPG, and that they will make an announcement sometime next month. Speaking with Famitsu, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda had this to say: “Actually, right now, we’re working on a new RPG specifically for consoles and it isn’t a remake. We’ll start talking about it more in December and go from there.”
Matsuda did not give any more details on the game in question, not even a title or direction on where the game might go. He did have this to say, however: “Just so we’re clear, we also have a lot of titles in the pipeline for not just consoles, but also smartphones and PCs, and this includes games that our overseas studios are working on. I can’t talk about what platform those other titles are going to be on yet, whether they’ll be on console or mobile, but I believe we should have a wide variety of games to announce after the new year arrives.”
This announcement could come at one of three events. In the first weekend of December, Sony will be holding the PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas. Square Enix will be there, so there is a chance that the company may make the announcement there. Also on the first week of December are the Video Game Awards 2014. Square Enix will also be at this year’s Jump Festa, also being held in December. There is always the possibility that Square Enix may announce the game there, as they already have an extensive lineup for the show already.
With November coming to an end, we will soon see just what Square Enix has up their sleeves. Soon we will know what consoles the title will be on, if there will be a PC port, and if the game will be a new IP or a part of an older series, such as Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy.
