    Nope. In fact, I suggested a StarOcean MMORPG.

    I used that survey to berate them for their growing practices of over-monetization of their own games, rather than putting out full content that lasts and is worth buying. But, you know, that's just me, and I'm well aware that SE will never take my opinion with any degree of value, regardless of whether or not that survey was really SE or not. *shrugs*

    Depending on how the next few years go, I might move on to the next FF mmo if there is one. I think for now SE is gathering information, and I think it will likely be a while before anything comes of it.

    They're probably looking for a successor to FFXI.

    The way some of the questions are leaded however, suggests they want to make a Final Fantasy themed Battle Royale game like Fortnite. Complete with all the wallet-draining microtransactions.

    I'd like a Chrono Trigger MMORPG, but that's just me going "Well I don't see a Super Mario MMORPG or a Kingdom Hearts MMORPG ever being a thing due the licencing hell it would result in"

    Ultimately the big problem with current MMOs is that there's a LOT of them and it's very, very difficult to actively play more than one MMO because as they are currently they are a huge time investment.
    Just like the horror genre in gaming, players/reviewers/developers like to state that the public isnt interested. Yet those games continue to sell and well over consistent extended time frames and market fluctuations

    This was definitely a marketing/monetization survey to help analyze what people will spend money on. I put my two cents in against cash-only DLC but... yeah.

    I don't think XIV is on it's way out any time soon but if they want to plan for it's successor, it's better to start testing the waters now by feeling out how positively people react to the idea. You can't spend enough time planning for games on the MMO scale.

    I'm for it because XIV has felt dated for a while now.

    The irony is there's somewhat of a MMO drought at least in term's of something new. FFXIV is one of the best managed ones because even with the mogshop it's harmless compared to the financial sinkholes of the like's of Aion, Blade and Soul and Black Desert Online where you can be looking at significant costs.
    People were hoping Bless would be good even because so few one's are coming out although that one is looking like its tanking hard in no small part due to poor performance, haphazard translations, unwanted and unneeded censorship, lack of content and underwhelming combat.

    The day's of an MMO being a job are over honestly. Noone realistically is interested in an endless grind but they do want an open world game to play around in.

    I told them to start making sequels to their older franchises rather than remakes or re-releases of the old ones. the Mana series, Chrono series, Draakenguard series, all need a new entry to revitalize their franchises. Stop milking the FF and DQ series for a little while, its getting out of hand, especially on mobile.

    The Nier games are part of Drakengard and Automata just came out last year so while that one is slow on getting updates at least it's not totally dead. I agree they need to stop cashing in on remakes though. They're riding that 7 remake so hard.
