Square Enix has plenty of reason to smile these days following reports that the Japanese gaming company has been racking in the revenue. The company has managed to raise $502 million in revenue last quarter and one game title that has helped out is the yet-to-debut “Final Fantasy 15”.

In a previous post, it was mentioned that “Final Fantasy 15” is due out by Sept. 30. Pre-orders are underway and as Pure PlayStation points out, copies have been constantly sold out. The deluxe and limited editions don’t last long on retailer shelves, hinting at bigger numbers on the horizon.

ZhugeEX estimates that “Final Fantasy 15” could end up generating close to $260 million in profit, good news to Square Enix. Considering the game has been in development for over a decade, there is no question that gamers are expecting something big.

Focus on “Final Fantasy 15” DLC and Season Pass

With its imminent coming, everyone knows that the buck for “Final Fantasy 15” does not end once the game officially launches. The game is expected to be riddled with additional content which will likely be made available through the Season Pass route.

This was already spotted via listings over at North America and Japanese PlayStation stores, all the more adding hype to the game, Game Spot reported.

Season Pass for “Final Fantasy 15” is expected to include three story modes covering “Ignis”, “Gladio” and “Prompto” plus an assortment of features in the form of packs (“Booster”, “Holiday” and “Expansion”). It is priced at $84.99, another bright spot for Square Enix as far as additional revenue.

Following “Final Fantasy 15” another big game title will follow in “Rise of the Tomb Raider” for the PS4. With the schedule of releases Square Enix has on its game offerings, those last quarter numbers are expected to increase all the more.
