Final Fantasy brand 'greatly damaged', says Square CEO

Publisher boss vows to continue with Final Fantasy XIV "reform work"

Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada says the poorly received Final Fantasy XIV has done a lot of damage to the famous series' reputation.


"The Final Fantasy brand has been greatly damaged [by XIV]," the executive said at a Tokyo press conference today, according to a Sponichi report (via Andriasang).

Back in May, Square Enix published a lengthy list of planned updates to improve the game following its bug-riddled launch last September.

Wada said today on the subject: "We'll continue with our reform work, which basically amounts to fully redoing the game, and hope to revive the FFXIV that should have been released."

The Final Fantasy series hit 100 million unit sales worldwide earlier this year.
