Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, Thief, Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD Remaster boosts Square Enix forecast

Square Enix adjusted its projected financial results for the year ending March 31, 2014 with net sales and operating income expected to exceed its forecast largely that it largely attributes to strong sales of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.

Projected financial results for the year ending March 31, 2014 from expected net sales of 140 billion ($1.37 billion) to 155 billion yen ($1.52 billion). The operating income, ordinary income and net income are also expected to exceed the range of the consolidated results forecast.

According to the notice of adjustment of consolidated results, company reports encouraging sales of Japan-exclusive Dragon Quest Monsters Super Light released in January 2014, and "favorable sales" of Thief, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. Square Enix' push for cost reduction efforts on a group‐wide basis also had an effect on the results.

Square Enix reported a turnaround in February after a disastrous 2013 fiscal year and was producing positive results in the first three quarters of the company's 2014 fiscal year.

Earlier this month, Square Enix announced last month the total number of registered users for the reboot of 2010 MMO Final Fantasy 14 had exceeded 2 million worldwide. The game rolled out to PlayStation 3 and Windows PC last fall, followed by a PlayStation 4 release last month. Check out Polygon's Overview video of the MMO below.
