The medieval action RPG is only one of the new intellectual properties Square Enix has in the pipeline. "Regarding yet unannounced IPs, we should certainly be able to announce 2 to 3 titles to everyone within a few years," Yoichi Wada, Square Enix’s CEO, said during a financial briefing. "With a requirement that an IP has to be capable of making a continuous profit contribution, we are aiming to establish 10 IPs."
Core IPs for Square Enix include Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, Tomb Raider, Hitman, and Deus Ex. Due to the high quality of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Square Enix will develop the Deus Ex IP into a franchise, Wada confirmed.
