Square Enix is partnering with German free-to-play publisher Bigpoint for an upcoming social game, it has revealed.

The title is said to already be well into development, and will be published by Bigpoint in Europe and North America, as well as being distributed through the company's games portal.

The title is set to be announced within the next few weeks, and is currently scheduled to release in six months time.

“We’re very excited to have teamed up with Bigpoint who are leaders in browser gaming,” said Square Enix Europe CEO Phil Rogers.

“This is the start of both an exciting new project and a strong relationship.”

Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz added: “We are so excited to have the opportunity to work with Square Enix. The combination of Square Enix’s long-standing experience in providing digital entertainment and Bigpoint’s expertise in developing browser games promises to yield quite the exciting new game.”
