In what can only be described as an enthralling read, Square Enix announced a revision to their income forecasts for the coming fiscal year, up from 140-150 billion yen ($1.32 billion/$1.47 billion) to 155 billion yen ($1.52 billion).
The reasons cited include strong sales for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster,Thief and Tomb Raider, the latter of which has now found its way onto the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. This is all good news for a company that was looking on the ropes at the end of the last fiscal year, although the conspicuous absence of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII from the list of games cited with 'favourable sales' will likely be causing one or two strategy rethinks in the depths of the company.
