Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo today, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada answered questions regarding the firm's future online plans.
When asked about Final Fantasy XIV, Wada said: "The Final Fantasy brand has been greatly damaged."
Final Fantasy XIV has been a problematic title for the firm, plagued by frequent bugs, lag, and numerous other issues since it first launched last year. Square Enix has released multiple patches to fix the issues, but remains unhappy with the game's current form.
"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," Wada added.
Wada also commented that after Dragon Quest X, future entries in the series will not necessarily be online.
"We're not making them all online," said Wada. "We'll continue with a variety of developments, offline included."
Square Enix's stock prices dropped 10% after the announcement of Dragon Quest X, an online role-playing game in development for the Wii and Wii U.
