I think we took a little too long getting [Final Fantasy XIII] out. When you think of Western triple A titles like Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Assassin's Creed, they seem to work with a lot shorter turnaround – they make a new game in 1-2 years.
That is something we need to follow up, because that seems to be the best way to keep our fans interested and attracted to the franchise.
And that is something that gamers never want to hear. Just when you think Square Enix may actually be getting their shit together, they say something like this.
Do you think that the annual release model could work for Final Fantasy? Or is Square going to run the franchise even more into the ground?
