Our sources had indicated to us last week that one of the publishers in question was, surprisingly, Square Enix. In fact, the publisher is said to have owed GRIN payments upwards of a few million dollars. The project? An action title based in the world of Final Fantasy -- more specifically, Final Fantasy XII.
