Square: We take too long to make games

ffxiii14

Square super-boss Yoichi Wada's told GI that his company takes too long to make games. With all due respect, Yoichi, a lot of people have been saying the same thing for a very, very long time.

"Yes - that's what I hope to achieve for the entire group," he said. "But we at Square Enix also have a problem - it takes too long for us to produce a game...

"In reality I think the issues we have are basically the same. On one side you might say that because of the budgetary constraints they released the games without having the games polished to perfection, but on the other side we take too long to release the game.

"So we have the same issue in the management and control of the process isn't strict enough. Even though we're producing entertainment products we need to have the right production process in place - and that is something that I'd like to implement across the entire business in our group."
