Square Enix pumps the brakes on buyout rumors

Square Enix pumps the brakes on buyout rumors

It's been a very up and down day for rumors regarding Square Enix. First, we heard a report claiming that multiple buyers were potentially interested in buying Square Enix - a rumor that's particularly easy to believe in a world where Microsoft can drop $7.5 billion to acquire Bethesda and all of its subsidiaries. Now, Square Enix has issued a statement on those rumors, attempting to pump the brakes on any speculation that it might soon be bought out by another company.

Outriders preps in-game freebies as an apology for launch connection issues

Outriders preps in-game freebies as an apology for launch connection issues

It's safe to say that Outriders has suffered something of a rocky launch. While there seems to be a lot of interest in Outriders, there was a bit too much for the game's opening weekend and its first week of availability, with players reporting connection issues that were only recently resolved. No one likes to experience connection issues in games they were looking forward to playing, so as something of an olive branch to a frustrated community, Square Enix has announced that it will be giving all Outriders players a "Community Appreciation Package."

After almost decades of waiting, fans of Final Fantasy were finally given the 3D remake they've been clamoring for. That said, it is being delivered piecemeal and the next serving is still nowhere in sight. In the meantime, Square Enix and Sony are milking the title while it's still fresh and giving it a special spin exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Almost a month after its initial announcement, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is getting another trailer, one that pits the PS5 version against the PS4.

Outriders is getting a surprise release on Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft long ago committed to bringing its first-party games to Xbox Game Pass on the same day they launch, but it isn't often that the company gets to say that about third-party titles. As confirmed today, it gets to say it about Outriders, the incoming looter shooter from the folks at Square Enix, as it'll be landing on Xbox Game Pass the same day it launches on console and PC.

Expect even more Square Enix remakes in the future

There's no question that Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of the biggest games of 2020 - at least among PS4 owners - so now it shouldn't come as a surprise that we're hearing of even more Square Enix remakes that are in the pipeline. Apparently, Square Enix has tapped Forever Entertainment to produce a slate of several new remakes, but for now, just what those remakes are is being kept under wraps.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade won’t take full advantage of PS5 – but there’s good news

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade won’t take full advantage of PS5 – but there’s good news

The PlayStation 5 is an impressive console, and a lot of that impressiveness stems from the machine's DualSense controller. With haptic feedback, 3D audio, and adaptive triggers, the DualSense controller definitely feels like a step up from previous generations, and PS5 games that support all of those features certainly have the potential to be more immersive as a result. Unfortunately, when Final Fantasy VII Remake gets a PS5 upgrade later this year, it isn't going to support all of the PS5's big features.

Final Fantasy VII mobile games give a taste of the Remake

Final Fantasy VII, abbreviated to FF7 or FFVII at times, is perhaps one of the most iconic games in a franchise that spans decades and generations of consoles. After decades of waiting, fans are getting their dreamed remake but, almost cruelly, they still have to wait again for the subsequent parts of the saga. In the meantime, however, Square Enix wants to distract fans with mobile spin-offs, including one that could perhaps be considered "spoilery" for the entire game.
