Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008


October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 12 of 21 Next
 

10. Square Enix

Year formed: Enix (1975); Square (1986)

Headquarters: Tokyo

Studios: Community Engine (Japan); Taito Corp. (Japan); Square Enix China (Beijing); Tokyo

This RPG giant ended the year with more releases and a higher average review score than last year, helping it move up one slot in the ranking.

But revenues and profits for the period fell noticeably compared to last year, due in part to falling sales of aging MMO Final Fantasy XI.

Titles that performed better included Dragon Quest IV and Itadaki Street DS (in Japan) as well as Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings (in the West) and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (around the globe).

This is one consistent publisher when it comes to review scores, and this year is no different: Square Enix achieved a 78 percent average score, second only to Microsoft Game Studios.
