Square Enix has launched a new development studio, led by Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV.
Taking a good number of his team from Final Fantasy XV with him, Tabata will lead the newly-founded Luminous Productions, located in Tokyo. Tabata previous described his intention to work on an entirely new IP: a large-scale endeavour based on the experiences and lessons learned from Final Fantasy XV. This new studio seems like the ideal way to approach a new project.
Not much about Luminous Productions is known as of yet. No projects have been announced, and the company’s official website has only two functions, outlining the company’s “vision” and providing careers listings. At present, a lot of roles are yet to be fill, from 3D Character Artist to Global Project Manager.
