Final Fantasy and Marvel’s Avengers Headline Square Enix Report
Square Enix recently announced its financial results for the first half of the fiscal year and the big games from it are Final Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy XIV, and Marvel’s Avengers. Fewer people are new to Final Fantasy XIV according to software sales, but the subscriber count continues to rise for the Final Fantasy MMORPG. Dragon Quest Tact had a strong showing in the mobile department, while Dragon Quest Walk and War of The Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvious continues to earn profits. Final Fantasy XIV is available right now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers both topped growth in digital sales, creating growth in net sales year-on-year for the six-month period, while profit returned to the black. The quarterly financial data Square Enix provided showed a large positive spike during the quarter that saw the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake and a loss during the quarter in which Marvel’s Avengers released, showing a bit of a juxtaposition between the two titles.
Net sales for Final Fantasy XIV were lower year-on-year according to Square Enix’s quarterly financial data due to the comparison with the launch of Shadowbringers. While fewer people are buying new copies of the Final Fantasy XIV software, the number of Final Fantasy XIV monthly subscribers continues to grow. Ultimately this results in higher profits for Square Enix during the recent quarter and more active players for the Final Fantasy MMORPG.
According to Square Enix’s quarterly financial data, Dragon Quest Walk and War of The Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvious both saw growth year-on-year for both sales and profit and succeeded in the mobile market. Square Enix is projecting both its overall results and the digital entertainment results to show growth year-on-year, giving its investors something to look forward to.
