Tabata left Square Enix, and cancelled the FFXV DLCs except episode Ardyn.
They lost 33 million dollars.

That's right. Sasukefire's existence is worthless and should disappear!

I wonder if it would have been better if they'd waited to release it. Were people just not coming back for the dlcs? They made their initial money at least

There are a lot of sides to blame. Square for announcing the game far too early and moving its director to other projects. Tabata for trying and failing to understand his target audience. The executives who pushed for a release that wasn’t properly polished yet. The game was just okay, nowhere near the caliber of the VII-X glory years. We’ll likely never get back to that quality from Square, unfortunately.

Sakaguchi helmed Square for those years; if he hadn't failed so badly with The Spirits Within, he might still have been in charge and Square wouldn't have declined so much.

At least Nobuo's health issues explain why he's not their top composer (and with Mitsuda and Yoko around, Square at least could have had some decent backups for him), but getting rid of Sakaguchi just for that one failure was a mistake, IMO. That and the merger.

And Yasunori Nishiki, the man who composed Octopath Traveler. Man has one credit to his name, and it's a masterpiece. Square would be wise to utilize him again, and not just for the (hopefully) inevitable Octopath sequel

That has nothing to do with it. It's because he left Square years ago and went into freelancing, only occasionally collaborating with them on projects he's interested in working on. The hiatus he took for the sake of avoiding health complications is a recent thing.

Can't say I've ever heard of the man, but if you say he's a good composer, I believe you.

Still, I think Yoko's proven herself quite well - from the old SNES days to the modern day. And Mitsuda's Chrono series scores are perhaps the best parts of both games - especially Chrono Cross.

Just don't expect that sequel game any time soon. The team over at Silicon Studio has shifted back to its main project series and have plans to continue forward with the world of Bravely Default.

You haven't heard of him because he has one soundtrack to his name. A couple of odd arrangements or individual songs in anime before that, but the only actual credit he has is Octopath. You can't explain away a masterpiece as beginner's luck. Man is talented

Don't get me wrong, Yoko is still my absolute favorite composer. I loved her work before I even knew who she was, back when I played Legend of Mana. But Nishiki is a man who needs to be hired again
