    The survey also mentioned Chrono Trigger, which is very suspicious because none of SE's old IPs are mentioned (Mana, Parasite Eve, Brave Fencer). The fact that CT was namedropped in the survey gives me hope for a sequel...especially since Setsuna did pretty well.

    But it had a sequel! Chrono Cross :P.

    They may create a third game.....aka Chrono Break.

    I'm barely interested in this mmo much less a new one. I kind of feel like maybe I'm burned out on SE in general. There's only so many times one can play the same game, after all. The villains are recycled, the stories are recycled, and even the 'original' ones are so obnoxious that I kind of click through them. The most egregious example I have is the story centering around a certain sexist faction and our companion NPC saying something like, "I want to stay and learn more about these people!" and I'm literally screaming at my screen "I f****** don't!!!!" - but I have to because that's storyline and I can't just tell them to throw themselves into the desert and spin. That was mostly the end for me. Add to that the systems here that are the most player-unfriendly things I have ever seen in any mmo, including FFXI, and there isn't much left that's attractive.

    I think that MMOs are going to be popular into the future... just maybe not SE mmos.

    Please market DQX as a new MMO (it would be for the West) <3

    Unsubbed.
    Lack of customisation for male characters, and the direction or lack thereof of the game, waiting for the next Dalamud.

    I think they have been “working” on the next FF MMO. I just hope it doesn’t turn out to be a wow theme park/ cash shop it’s turned into. I feel like even though 1.0 had issues . I had lot of fun times and epic memories.

    I think this is a great idea actually, they have a bunch of different race options that would entice people alone.

    The more I think about it, the more I want it.

    It could be set after Tactics A2, which happens after XII and Revenant's Wing but far before the original Tactics.
    The players could be wandering hunters/adventurers, who can form their own clans like in Advance and A2 that will work like FCs + Grand Companies.
    They could have the original 5 races from Advance starting out (Hume, Banga, Moogle, Viera, and Nu Mou) and add other races with the expansions (like Aegyl, Gria, Seeq, etc).
    Jobs could function like in XII: Zodiac Age, where you have a Main Job and a secondary Job, each with a license board shaped like a picture, that you unlock skills, spells, traits, and gear with as you level.

    I ask for a FF7 MMORPG. It be something different than ffxi and ffxiv is like it be more in the future than the past like other two.

    I'll definitely not buy another game from SE. Their RNG in FF is so bad, I'm shivering in Horror if I'm thinking about suffering from it again in another game.
    Not to mention the fact that they have to complicate all simple things. No thanks.
    And one more thing. I don't like the fact that SE does not want to talk to their Player in an International language. If I'm done with FF, I'm done with SE.

    No. That is quite good, actually.

    Apologies if someone brought up SE's investor guidance, but attempting to divine the tea leaves here (guidance May 11, 2018), http://www.hd.square-enix.com/eng/ne...8q4outline.pdf

    Yosuke Matsuda: "I next turn to the MMO subsegment. FY2018/3 saw the release of expansion packs for FINAL FANTASY XIV and DRAGON QUEST X and both titles contributed to earnings. In particular, the release of the expansion disk for FINAL FANTASY XIV led to the highest number of paying subscribers that title has experienced since its launch."

    Based on this, looks like FF14 is doing great and they're gonna keep milking it instead of releasing something new. Further:

    "We expect the HD Games sub-segment to book an operating loss in 1Q FY2019/3. We will not be releasing any major new titles until the launch of SHADOW OF THE TOMB RAIDER, which is slated for September 14. In other words, our launch schedule for new titles in FY2019/3 kicks off in the latter half of 2Q and is therefore weighted more to 2H. We likewise do not look for new smart device titles to start contributing to earnings until July. Moreover, because we will first be investing advertising spending on large-scale marketing campaigns and other efforts associated with the launch of major new titles and smart device games, we look for earnings to struggle in 1Q. Our plan is to make up for this starting in 2Q."

    So arguably SE needs steady FF14 sub revenue to compensate their expected losses from console gaming and mobile development. I still don't understand why a company of SE's size is deciding it can be a mobile game player (way too much overhead, too many employees to compete with the nimble barebones traditional mobile devs).

    BUT the one answer from SE corporate that can be read that a new MMO could be in the works:

    "Q: How does your Digital Entertainment segment guidance split between HD Games, MMO, and Games for Smart Devices/PC Browsers?

    A: We do not disclose the exact monetary values, so I’ll describe the trends we expect. We look for sales of HD Games to rise given our plans to launch multiple major new titles. It’s likely to be an average year for MMO since we have no expansion pack releases planned. We meanwhile target ¥100 billion in sales of Games for Smart Devices/PC Browsers."

    So is that dev money being pocketed or is SE slowing down with FF14 development and may be shifting that money to developing a new MMO? I still think they are hellbent on breaking into mobile, possibly to the detriment of both their big box console and MMO business. We'll see....
