For what seems like a first time in a long time, Square Enix's financial forecast has been revised to show an 88 percent increase in predicted profit. If the figures remain true, Square Enix will have a profit of 6.6 billion yen by the end of the month.
In their official statement, Square listed the causes of the revision. They attributed much of the increase to the sales of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Dragon Quest Monster: Super Light, which is a Japan-only mobile game, Thief, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Unspecified cost reductions were also made. The reason behind the revised estimate was due to a change in the foreign exchange rate of the Japanese yen.
With predictions looking up for Square Enix, perhaps the company can make this financial blessing habitual instead of a rare occurrence.
