Square Enix Will Announce ‘Several’ Games In The Coming Months
It looks like the folks over at Square Enix have a busy summer planned. According to a stockholders meeting that took place earlier this week, the Japanese publisher intends to announce ‘several’ new games within the coming months that were originally slated to be revealed during the now canceled E3 2020 event.
The news comes by way of Gematsu, which translated an exchange regarding Square Enix’s original E3 plans. “Normally, you would announce new games at E3,” the question begins, “but how has coronavirus affected your plans this year?” A Square Enix spokesperson replied by confirming that the publisher would indeed normally be announcing new games at E3. “We had planned to have a press conference as a replacement event, but were unable to do so since assets were not complete.”
We’ll be announcing new titles individually as timing permits. Several will debut around July to August.”
Given the wording, it seems like Square Enix won’t be holding a sizable conference to serve as a vehicle for multiple game reveals, à la EA Play Live. The publisher will instead make its game announcements as it see fits throughout the rest of the Summer, once these ‘assets’ are available.
What’s to come is by no means the first new game Square Enix is betting on moving into the future. During the recent PlayStation 5 reveal event, the publisher announced Project Athia, a mysterious new title that was designed with the PS5 in mind. With the upcoming release of both next-gen consoles, these next few games that will be revealed will likely be marketed with both platforms in mind.
