At an April 5 assembly held for investors, several plans and strategies were revealed concerning furture plans Square would partake in. As reported by fellow gaming site MadMan's Cafe (article) the following was declared:
  1. Under the leadership of the new company president Yoichi Wada, Square will focus on their main business of video games from now on. Unlike in the past year, funds will not be dispersed to other fields outside of games (such as movies and television shows).
  2. Hit products such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy Tactics, Seiken Densetsu and Parasite Eve, will be reproduced.
  3. No major projects will take place other than those relating to the Final Fantasy series, which will also be expanded by spin-offs such as sub-series focused on certain characters in the game(s), starting from Final Fantasy XII.
  4. This fiscal year will be a preparation period for the next year, used to change the production line and other factors. Square aims to profit 4 to 6 billion Yen in stand-alone games and 1 to 3 billion Yen in online games by the end of the next fiscal year.
