“It’s coming, yeah. This month.” Eidos CEO Phil Rogers has confirmed plans for a summit where key figures from both the Final Fantasy and Tomb Raider publishers will be in attendance.

On the possibilities of the exchange, Rogers doesn’t mind showing his excitement. “We’ve loved the pace, internally, that things seem to be [at]. There’s a lot of planning and thought leadership.

“Some initiatives that we talked about: we have anacademy of experts; we’re going to take our studio leadership structure and key engineers, and have attendees and participation from the Square Enix side, and that’s fantastic.”

Yoichi Wada, Square Enix CEO and president, has also confirmed that “Square Enix engineers are going to be participating in that as well, so there is going to be a lot of exchange going back and forth, in that sense.”

“So there’s genuine excitement in the business,” shares Rogers, “And it’s lovely to be able to say that, actually. I really love that it’s true. We’re a very product-focused company now, and this combination feels right.”

Good things can only come from a thing such as this. Let’s hope we’ll all feel just as well about the combination.
