Platinum Games and Square Enix’s action role-playing hack and slash game, Babylon's Fall, was one of the more disappointing games this year. Despite receiving a plethora of negative reviews from critics, Square Enix developers are planning to continue their service and provide new content for the game.
A recent tweet from Square Enix revealed that they have no plans to reduce the scale of development on Babylon’s Fall as the game will continue to receive updates for upcoming seasons. Developers have also showcased a limited-time collaboration event with NieR: Automata coming this March.
