This is a recruitment ad page. It isn't an announcement for fans. Which is pretty hilarious. They're looking to recruit core staff for the studio, so whatever they're making is probably centuries away.

The job postings are for: Battle Director, Event Director, Lead Planner, Battle Planners, Lead Programmer, Programmers, Marketing Director, Technical Artists, Lead Effects Designer, Lead Animator, Lead 3DCG Character Designer, Lead 3DCG Environment Designer, Lead Menu Designer.

As we can see, they clearly haven't started at all yet. Lol.
They're asking for experience working with Unity.

Yeah, right. Good luck with that. I'll eat crow though if anything of value comes out of this.

Square-Enix + new studio + RPG + console = does not compute.

Well, curious to see what they're going to come up with. Unfortunately, it will be a while before we see anything from that studio.

Well, this may well be where the new game announcement will come from at TGS.

Oh, so FFXV is finally entering development.
Yup..This is essentially the reason for the delays.

but now that this studio is open, Development shall begin shortly!

Stay tuned for more info and wait while we assess the best occasion to release more about this title.

Ha, first post.

I ... don't know what to think of this. S-E is famous for announcements that are worthless. At least it's not a mobile phone.

Anyone think this is in response to their bewilderment that Bravely Default did so well in the West?

Anyway, I'm cautiously optimistic, but would love to see more sprite based RPGs.

SE taking steps to right direction.I hope something good comes out of this.

Do you guys think that the Bravely Defaults success had anything to do with this? edit: Bah too slow

I'd imagine considering how well the PS4 is selling, they wanna get on that shit asap.

That's why Persona 5 is getting a PS4 version, instead of just sticking to the PS3.

We have decided it would be fitting for FFXV to be a launch title for the Sony PSXV
it would still miss the launch date

Well if none of your current staff can successfully ship one, maybe you can hire a new team that can.
Yeah, I'm simply surprised by this sudden (major) push towards console RPG, as they've been heavily investing towards mobile lately.

That's quite the interesting move, there.

What kind of address "xn--rpg-l46fv4g868aqu6a" is?

Is it a code for FFXV release date?

Well, I mean, it's one new studio that they're presumably hoping can ship games efficiently by not being packed with the people who can't ship games.

It's not quite on the scale of buying another console publisher like Eidos or the failed Tecmo acquisition.
