People can fly acknowledging that it has not yet received funding from Outriders, as Square Enix has yet to recoup the funds to begin paying off the revenue agreed between the two companies.
After announcing that Square Enix lost more than $ 200 million with Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy, now news comes that the Japanese company is also losing money with Outriders.
A new financial statement from Polish Power Fly confirms that as of December 31, 2021, Outriders (released April 2021) have not been fully operational, meaning Square Enix has not yet recouped the money it spent on development, marketing and distribution.
