Reviews for Forspoken, which we launched on January 24, 2023, have been tough. However, the game also received positive feedback on its action features, including its parkour and combat mechanics, so it delivered results that will lead to improving our abilities to develop other games in the future.

That said, its sales were poorand while the performance of new titles released in February and March will be the ultimate determinant, we foresee considerable downside risk to our revenue in the third quarter of fiscal year 2023.

Without citing them, Yosuke Matsuda also claims that other small and medium-sized games have not achieved the expected sales performance in recent months. Square-Enix as a reminder released a package of titles like The DioField Chronicle, Star Ocean The Divine Force, Harvestella, Tactics Ogre: Reborn, Dragon Quest Treasures, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion or Valkyrie Elysium.

Re Forspoken, Square-Enix hope that the title will still manage to sell over time with promotionsand the DLC In Tanta We Trust is still planned for this summer. Available on PC and exclusively consoles on PS5, the title could also be entitled to a port on Xbox Series X|S, but not before January 2025. You can find Forspoken To 51 € on Amazon.
