Whenever I hear that a Japanese company is working with an EU/NA company my mind automatically thinks 'ruh-roh'. Here's hoping this one turns out really good.

Last I heard them mention the series, they were pissed that Chrono Trigger DS didn't sell enough since I guess 800k is a disappointing number for a port of a 15 year old game they charged full price for.

I'd be 100% fine with it if Kato wrote it. Better than getting nothing and leaving all those loose ends.

This is the last thing the world needs. With their track history for fucking up games over the past 5-7 years, are you sure you're prepared to go down this route?

Isn't this old news? I recall reading on this very site that Square-Enix was supposedly making a game with Obsidian or some other American developer.

Take Two used to own the Dungeon Siege name, but I'm not sure exactly how SquareEnix got a hold of it. I know SquareEnix published Gas Powered Games' Supreme Commander 2 last year, so there has been a previous relationship between the two companies. Gas Powered is not making this though, It's Obsidian Entertainment.

I really hope it's that "Fortress" game that GRIN had started before they got canned. That looked like it could have had a lot of potential.

Square Enix was smart to pick up Edios.
Portable titles and Tomb Raider reboot are the only stuff I'm looking forward to from SE.

Tweet from Square Enix NA executive producer Dave Hoffman

Working on two new things. Well, one is 'sort of' new. Announcements should be coming soon! Wish I could say more but can't

His LI profile

- Structured and lead an entire new Business Development department resulting in IP acquisitions, M&A executed purchases and five development agreements.

Square Enix NA seems to be working on three new projects with NA developers (with Supreme Commander 2 and Dungeon Siege 3 already released).
