Deus Ex: HR And Final Fantasy XIII-2 Return Square To Winning Ways

Square Enix is back in black, according to recent reports, with Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy XIII-2 to thank for hauling the company back into profitability in the last financial year.

The previous year saw losses of 12 billion yen last year (roughly £47 million), but this year Square Enix has posted figures of 6 million yen in the black.

"The Group's results were favourable due to increased sales of console games boosted by our major titles, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Final Fantasy 13-2," read a statement from the company, before adding that Square Enix hope to "generate a substantial earnings improvement" over the coming year too.

There are big titles due in the next twelve months, many of them from Western studios - with Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider pushed back to Q1 2013, and IO's Hitman: Absolution slated and dated for late November.

We really hope that the latter title doesn't get lost in the pre-Christmas rush. After all, Deus Ex: HR got the jump on the winter gridlock by releasing in August, and all figures point towards that being one of the smartest moves of the year, not least Square's bank balance.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is amazing. I am right near the end now and so far so great!

Glad Square are coming back as I want more FF down the line.

Though they should admit defeat and REMAKE FF7 ALREADY! :D
