>losing money in general
>haven't had a big successful game in over a decade
they had FF14 and then Dragon Quest online game was successful and then the Dragon Quest 11 broke even or sold well.
>FF15, KH3 and NU-VII flopped
That is a bit of an exaggeration these games broke even or even was successful. If not why make a new Kingdom Hearts game and then a number 2 to nu-FF7?
>multimedia isn't making money
I have no idea of what Square Enix has released as-of late when it comes to Manga or novels, but from my dumb understanding is that manga hasn't gone down.
>They don't, they only did that with two Final Fantasy games.
no, most big games after 04 are within a plan to be a universe or coherent universe, or a series. With spin-off novels, manga,anime,film and vidya. So when they make an IP they are thinking how they can milk it in other ways.Hell, Square Enix have been proud of that fact.
>the only planned one was FF15, which of course failed spectacularly.
No, FF13 as a universe was the most planned with Fabula Nova Crystallis.
FF15 was semi planned and got at-least a 3d cgi movie so to hype the game.
>SE to stop making mainline FF
I doubt that, but we will see when it is released and then can see how well it preforms.
this was a nice clickb8 title, it was just too dark to see what was going on in the video. that is like normal stuff that can happen with gameplay that is set during the night and it is still under development.
but this is just like the spin off game of Strangers of Paradise which was edgy overly violent game.
