Square Enix’s CEO, Yoichi Wada, recently suggested that The Last Remnant may not be coming to the PS3.
By translating an article from Japanese website Makonako, Andriasang.com found the question on Last Remnant’s status buried in a report on Square Enix’s shareholder meeting. Most questions were about earnings and not about specific games, but someone was curious enough about Last Remnant to ask a question anyway.
In summary, Wada said no company wants to make promises that it can’t keep, especially when it comes to multiplatform releases. Square Enix has to keep profitability in mind, however, and as the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game did not sell too well, it is unlikely that it would sell well on a new platform.
Wada didn’t mention The Last Remnant specifically by name, but his comments didn’t sound too promising to those hoping to see a PS3 release of the game.
