It's only December, but Square Enix, the Tokyo-based company behind Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, is looking at a rough 2011.
The company is pushing back the PS3 release of massively multiplayer online role-playing game Final Fantasy XIV as well as action role-playing game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
Both titles, along with another Tomb Raider reboot, are some of the company's big games for next year. These delays caused Square Enix to slash its 2011 profit forecast by over 90 per cent.
With games like Final Fantasy XIII (pictured), Final Fantasy XIV and Dragon Quest IX (in the West), this year was a banner one for Square Enix. Profits were up and the company was rolling in cashola. Next year? Less so.
