Square Enix has a two pronged strategy. First, they want to strengthen existing IPs with reboots. As examples, Square Enix listed Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, Front Mission Evolved, The 3rd Birthday, Deus Ex, and Dungeon Siege in this group.


Additionally, Square Enix wants to continue to build new brands. Nier, Mindjack, and Gun Loco were in this group. "Starting up new IPs has been extremely difficult," Yoichi Wada, CEO of Square Enix, commented.
