Square Enix focusing on original games for Switch, Octopath Traveler dev teases “several other titles”
Square Enix, along with the team at Acquire, are currently wrapping up Octopath Traveler for Switch. The company won’t be stopping there, however.
Speaking with Game Informer, Octopath Traveler producer Tomoya Asano confirmed that more projects are on the way. He mentioned that “Square Enix has decided that it wants to focus on original titles for the Switch.”
Asano’s full words:
“Square Enix has decided that it wants to focus on original titles for the Switch. If Octopath Traveler does well and this is something that appeals to fans, we want to focus on Switch. Please pick up the Switch if you want to play games like Octopath Traveler.”
Game Informer followed up on that statement by asking if games are already in the works, or if Square Enix’s future on the platform depends on the performance of Octopath Traveler. To that, he said:
“There are several other titles that we’re currently working on for Switch. If you could just wait a bit longer, we’ll work with Nintendo and announce them in the future.”
