Square Enix revealed today its FY12 Financial Results and according to the report, Square Enix’s Digital Entertainment division was boosted by some incredible sales figures for both Deus Ex and Final Fantasy XIII-2. As of September last year, Deus Ex had sold more than 2.18 million copies across all territories after releasing in August. We are pretty sure though that the number is way higher, as the company has not updated the total figure since then.
For the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, Square Enix’s Digital Entertainment division posted revenues of $898.4 million, meaning that the revenue was up – at around – 11.9% compared to the previous year.
On the other hand, Square Enix posted revenues of $1.60 billion (for all its divisions), a number that was up 2.1% compared last year’s $1.57 billion. The company has also reported profits of $75.8 million compared to last year’s losses of $150.5 million.
We also expect that the return to profits pushed Square Enix to give Crystal Dynamic the extra time to polish the Tomb Raider reboot, otherwise the game would not be delayed.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
