Square Enix held a shareholder meeting earlier this week, and details from the event are just beginning to make their way online. One eye-catching bit of information is that Square Enix has multiple new games to announce, and these announcements are likely going to be made in July and August.
The news first appeared earlier today through a Livedoor blog (and has since been translated online by regular fan translators). The general sentiment out of the shareholder meeting is that Square Enix were set to announce multiple new games at E3 2020, until the showcase scheduled for earlier this month was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because of this, Square Enix is left with multiple new game announcements, and no showcase to reveal them at. So instead, the company is going to announce the new titles when they're ready, either in July or August, according to the translations of the meeting.
The question is, what new titles could Square Enix be ready to reveal? Recently, the publisher revealed Project Athia earlier this month at the PlayStation 5 games showcase, which was originally helmed by Final Fantasy 15 director Hajime Tabata at Luminous Productions, before he departed the company entirely.
Elsewhere in Square Enix's portfolio, we know that the second part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake is in development, and possibly recording motion capture in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from that though, there's Marvel's Avengers releasing in September, and the Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory rhythm game spinoff releasing for mobile and Nintendo Switch later this year.
