To say that Square Enix appears to be in a confusing position would be putting it mildly. It seems that includes the company's financial situation, as the publisher posted its financial results for the second quarter of 2013 and whilst the losses are reduced, the company still booked a ¥1.6 billion ($16.2 million) loss.

There's no word on whether this review will affect any games currently in development but it seems likely Square Enix will keep trucking on as is, still developing on consoles, PC, and the mobile market.
