Matsuda had this to say when asked about any potential Square Enix titles that may appear at E3 2021:

Outriders, which was delayed has released on April 1, 2021. And NieR Replicant will release this month as well. Final Fantasy VII Intergrade will release in June. We have several other games lined up, which we plan to announce at E3 2021 in June, so please look forward to these announcements.

Matsuda also mentions that despite the situation surrounding COVID-19, Square Enix continues to work on titles in a timely manner. Matsuda was also asked about the Chinese market, to which he responded stating that it is a hard market to break into. However, Square Enix will attempt to break into the Middle Eastern and South American markets as well. He also discusses digital sales, and what that means for the global market.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will release for PlayStation 5 on June 10, 2021. NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in the West on April 23, 2021.
