Square Enix Admit They Take Too Damn Long To Make Games

In an admission that will no doubt mean...something to frustrated Final Fantasy fans the world over, Square Enix boss Yoichi "Imperial Hot" Wada has confessed that the company takes too long to make a game.

Speaking with GI.biz about their recent buyout of British firm Eidos (publishers of Tomb Raider), Wada said "...we at Square Enix...have a problem - it takes too long for us to produce a game..."

"In reality I think the issues we [and Eidos] have are basically the same", he elaborates. "On one side you might say that because of the budgetary constraints they released the games without having the games polished to perfection, but on the other side we take too long to release the game".

Small comfort to people hanging out for Final Fantasy XIII, then, but some comfort to anyone possibly hanging out for, I don't know, Kane & Lynch 2.
