Comment: Square Enix with abdominal landing in the new year
Just in time at the beginning of the year, Square Enix reminds the community because greed in the Games’ industry will be in the center of 2022.

He also relies on positive reactions of players who otherwise registered no one. At least not on the part of the audience.
