    New Square Enix studio to focus on Xbox 720, PS4, Wii 2

    Square Enix is to open a second Canadian development studio in preparation for the next generation of home consoles.

    Planned to open in 2012 with at least 100 employees, it will be based in either Montreal, Quebec or Toronto, according to Canadian paper La Presse (via GI.biz).


    The director of the publisher's Eidos Montreal studio, which is currently developing Deus Ex: Human Revolution, said of the move: "The new consoles from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo will require more attention and more staff. We want to prepare ourselves."

    The final location of the new studio is to be decided in May, with D'Astous saying "the negotiating process has begun".

    Earlier this year, Crysis maker Crytek told CVG that it expects a new console generation to arrive by 2013, while Just Cause dev Avalanche told us that it's "prepared" for any sudden announcement of a successor to the Xbox 360.

    Some publishers appear less keen on the prospect, with THQ CEO Brian Farrell saying last October that new consoles are the "last thing" the industry needs.

    PlayStation overlord Kaz Hirai claimed last month that PS4 isn't even on the agenda behind closed doors at Sony right now.

    I guess we'll see. Sony had better be more friendly next time around and especially in the USA. I think they've damaged their image in America this generation with regards to what they've done. False advertising by removing features, stamping out home brew gaming and not releasing firmware updates for the past year that really mean much to the consumers at large. I think they've really dropped the ball this gen. I'm certainly going to be much more cautious next gen. I'm going to scrutinize much more and I'm going to question much more. I'm also not going to buy into the hype of all the touted features that they will announce. Sony has broken the consumers' trust. I may have to sit next gen out.

    Someone said it best here when they said "How the mighty have fallen" here on psu. Square enix really needs to step it up and make atleast one good final fantasy. I really hope square enix proves me wrong and Makes a great game. (FFversus13)

    3 FFs per gen mean 1, 2, 3 etc. not spinoffs. We've had 2 so far (13 and 14), so we need 15 by next year not that anyone probably gives a ****.

    XIV is not out and who knows if it will since we haven't had news for it in ages. Also, I didn't count X-2, so no reason to count XIII-2 or any other spin off. I meant games for the main saga.

    If I were to count all other spin offs, I would have to count those Chocobo Dungeon games for PSOne, Ehrgeiz, Chocobo Racing, etc, which would still overwhelm the amount of FFs SE has launched this gen.

    Seems like 2013 at earliest since they are opening in 2012. they said they are opening the studio with 100 employees which is tiny compared to staff for other games like Halo.

    As far as I know, Square Enix has already been working on a next-gen engine. They were caught unprepared for the needs of PS3/Xbox 360/current PC development at the beginning of this generation, which were the main source of the problems & length of FFXIII's development. Having learnt from the past, they probably don't want to miss the train as badly next time.


    Also, I didn't count X-2, so no reason to count XIII-2 or any other spin off. I meant games for the main saga.

    If I were to count all other spin offs, I would have to count those Chocobo Dungeon games for PSOne, Ehrgeiz, Chocobo Racing, etc, which would still overwhelm the amount of FFs SE has launched this gen.
    Uhh... You're not seriously comparing X-2 & especially XIII-2 to Chocobo Dungeon? XIII-2 will probably be bigger & better than XIII. Just because it's a sequel doesn't lessen the importance of it at all. And while X-2 had a lighter mood (for the most part) than X, that doesn't remove the fact that it was still a big game with tons to do. You might've not liked the Charlie's Angels-esque thing they were going for the game, but it's still a big FF release not in any way comparable to any Chocobo Racing/Dungeon game.

    Mindjack was made by a Japanese studio and Front Mission Evolved wasn't made by any Square Enix studio, so I have a hard time understanding why the hell would those names be needed to be brought up here? You're forgetting that Eidos and all that they had is now part of Square Enix. So this is basically ex-Eidos setting up a new studio, not some Wada Master Plan.

    And no good can come up with this? Depends on what kind of talent they'll attract there. In the best case scenario we could, for all we know, very well see the next Deus Ex: Human Revolution level production from this new studio. Let's not be hasty in judging something that is not even close to being a reality.

    On a side note: Square Enix should have had a studio to focus on this gen.
    They have had plenty of studios that have focused on this gen.
