Did you see Demo Final Fantasy XIII ? Is this (no doubt beautiful, but not very innovative) game it was necessary to make such a huge amount of time ? No. Square Enix President Yoichi Wada (Yoichi Wada) recognizes that the company has one problem - the production of games took too much time.
This is difficult not to agree, even if you do not take into account the Final Fantasy XIII. In 2005, at E3 was the announcement of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles:The Crystal Bearers, and more or less coherent parts of the product began to appear in the press just now. Four years later !
As you know, Square Enix bought Eidos. Now the managers say that the British company will no longer produce the draft only to catch in time. If the game is defective, it will need to be refined. We hope this does not mean that the next part of Tomb Raider, we will have to wait 5 years.
