Square Enix producer on Star Ocean 6: “Please wait a little longer”

Sequel seemingly not currently in production.

Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness

Star Ocean Fes 2018 has come and gone, and the announcement of a Star Ocean 6 was nowhere to be seen. During a Star Ocean Program live stream at the event, Square Enix producer Shuichi Kobayashi addressed the demand for a new entry.

“I understand, I know what else everyone would like to hear, but speaking frankly, it’s not that simple to make,” Kobayashi said.

“If it could be made without tri-Ace, then surely it would possible. But that’s not the case, is it? I’m saying please wait a little longer. Won’t you please wait a little longer?”

Kobayashi continued, “Please keep faith in us as we continue with Anamnesis. I’ll also do my best. That’s all I can say today, but I believe that everyone’s support will empower us to work hard.”

The latest entry in the series, Star Ocean: Anamnesis, launched for smartphones in Japan in December 2016. The latest console entry in the series, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness (Star Ocean 5), launched for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in March 2016, and for PlayStation 4 worldwide in June 2016.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
