Square Enix has published its six-month financial report, flagging up a revised year-end projection due to the strong performance of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn.
Siliconera reports that Square original projection for the full financial year sat between ¥59 billion ($598 million) and ¥63 billion.
That number has been revised due to Final Fantasy 14’s relaunch exceeding initial expectations, and has also been attributed to strong arcade performance in Japan. Square new full-year projection rests at ¥61.7 billion ($626 million).
Initially, the company had posted an expected operating loss of ¥2 billion ($20 million), but this has also changed. Square now expects to bring in an operating profit of ¥4.7 billion ($48 million).
Finally, Square’s net income projection was revised and narrowed from anywhere between a flat performance and a ¥1.3 billion ($13 million) loss to a ¥2.6 billion profit ($26 million).
We’ll have more stats as they trickle out of Japan today.
