Naoki Yoshida Named to the Square Enix Board of Directors - Final Fantasy XIV - MMORPG.com

Final Fantasy XIV Game Director Naoki Yoshida has been given a position on the Square Enix Board of Directors. The announcement was made as part of the latest investors' quarterly meeting. Yoshida has been instrumental in the amazing turnaround of Final Fantasy XIV and, as tipster 'Coolit' said, is "very much deserved".

Other game developers named to the board include:

  • Yoshinori Kitase, Producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake & Mobius Final Fantasy
  • Yosuke Saito, Producer of the Dragon Quest series & NieR Automata
  • Shinji Hashimoto, Brand Manager of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts

In the area of massively multiplayer online role playing games, revenues from the latest expansions of “FINAL FANTASY XIV” and “DRAGON QUEST X” led to an increase in the number of paying subscribers and disk sales, which resulted in an increase of net sale and operating income, as compared to the same period of the prior fiscal year. In the Amusement segment, operation of the amusement facilities has been showing steady performance while new amusement machine releases decreased, which led to the decline in this segment’s net sales and operating income.

Check out the financial results on the Square Enix Investor Relations page.
