Square Enix announced today its expansive lineup of games for the 2010 E3 Expo, taking place in Los Angeles next week. Continuing to diversify its global offerings to meet the needs of consumers worldwide, Square Enix will be showcasing the widest range of games in company history.
Headlining this year’s booth will be four of the hottest franchises in the industry from both the Square Enix and Eidos brands. Under Square Enix, the company delivers the highly anticipated MMORPG experience Final Fantasy XIV, the next installment in the iconic franchise that has sold more than 97 million units worldwide.
Under the Eidos brand will be IO Interactive’s Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, reuniting gaming’s most notorious criminals in a raw shooter that introduces a new visual experience inspired by documentary film. Additionally, the year’s biggest surprise announcement, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the long-awaited next installment, will be showcased for attendees anxious to get a first look at the newly imagined Cyber Renaissance world that will revolutionize the gaming experience – just as the original Deus Ex did a decade ago.
The company's booth will also feature Square Enix’s partnerships with North American developers, including Front Mission Evolved, being developed by Double Helix Games, and freshly announced Dungeon Siege 3, being developed by Obsidian Entertainment.
“At this year’s E3, Square Enix is proud to showcase its extensive and diverse range of games for everyone, everywhere,” said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix, Inc. “With our global network of studios and partnerships with developers around the world, the lineup proves that we are uniquely positioned to lead the interactive entertainment industry with a broad portfolio of market leading franchises, including properties under both Square Enix and Eidos.”
