Square Enix’s Consolidated Financial Report for the fiscal year 2024 not only brought details about the video game company’s recent financial performance, but also its plans for the future. In outlining changes to its business strategy, Square Enix announced that it’ll emphasize multiplatform releases with future titles.

Square Enix revealed its plans in the Management Strategy section of its financial report for the fiscal year ended on March 31, 2024. The Final Fantasy developer indicates a desire to release its games on more platforms across consoles and PC.

Most recently, Square Enix released Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth exclusively for the PS5. Its predecessor, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, was eventually ported to PC but never made its way to Xbox or Nintendo Switch. There’s still one more game to go in that trilogy, so it’ll be interesting to see if Square Enix has a different release strategy when the time comes.

Among Square Enix’s other major franchises are Dragon Quest and Kingdom Hearts. Stick with Shacknews for the latest Square Enix updates and all the news where gaming and business intersect.
