The tepid critical reception to Final Fantasy XIV stung Square Enix so bad that even CEO Yoichi Wada had to come forward to apologize on behalf of his company over how the hotly anticipated MMORPG turned out at launch. The publisher has yet to even release the PS3 version of FFXIV, instead focusing its energies to tweak and polish the existing PC title in an effort to make it more playable and enjoyable for its target platform.
That said, the publisher isn't about to sulk in some corner over its future in massively multiplayer online gaming. In fact, Wada confirms that his company will continue to tackle the market.
According to the transcript of his May 13th earnings briefing posted on Square Enix's investor relations page earlier today, Wada explained how Square Enix's goal is to run two to three "large scale" MMO titles simultaneously over the course of its latest fiscal year. Wada expects his company will later this year announce a new MMO title it has been producing behind the scenes alongside FFXIV.
