Square Enix hopes to announce new SaGa title in 2022
Square Enix yesterday held a SaGa Series Official Broadcast: Producers Talk 2021 live stream, in which the key staff behind the SaGa series discussed the franchise in 2021.
While the stream explicitly stated beforehand that no surprising announcements were going to be made, SaGa series creator and general director Akitoshi Kawazu once again confirmed that the development of a new SaGa game is in the works, with a hopeful announcement coming in 2022.
Kawazu stated the following:
Currently we're also developing a title, and I think it would be nice if we could announce it somewhere next year, so please look forward to it.... People including [SaGa Producer Hiroyuki Miura] and myself are working on the next packaged title, so I hope you look forward again to the SaGa series next year."
Kawazu had previously indicated that a new title was in preparation in a statement made around the launch of SaGa Frontier Remastered, along with stating interest in porting remaining series titles like SaGa Frontier 2 and Unlimited SaGa to modern consoles.
RPG Site also had a chance to speak with Kawazu and SaGa team in June of this year, where Kawazu once again stated that "we are planning the remastering of these titles". In the same interview, SaGa producer Hiroyuki Miura stated that sales of both SaGa Frontier Remastered and Collection of SaGa sales met or were above expectations.
We at RPG Site we quite fond of SaGa's latest new entry in SaGa Scarlet Grace, scoring it a 10/10 in our review and awarding it our RPG of the Year in 2019, so we are certainly interested to see where how the series will return in the coming years.
