FF Versus 13 Quietly Cancelled?
According to Kotaku sources SquareEnix has canceled the one Final Fantasy game that fans actually wanted, other than a re-release of FF7 in HD, Final Fantasy Versus XIII.
SquareEnix plans to continue ahead with the Fabula Nova Crystallis series, FF Agito 13 (or Type-o as it has been renamed) still has no official date or announcement for lands beyond Japan.
On September 1st SquareEnix is celebrating 25 years of the Final Fantasy franchise and they have announced that they would be doing a presentation called “Final Fantasy XIII Lightnight Saga: New Developments Presentation”, the panel is to talk about “details on the future of the FFXIII project”.
Multiple sources have said that SquareEnix has chosen not to announced Versus XIII as canceled, instead they plan to let the buzz for the game die down and end quietly without making an official announcement.
One source has even come out to say the game “has been canceled for the last few weeks, it had an impact on the staff” when they found out.
After the embarrassment of FF XIV and fans getting a cheap PC port instead of remake of FF 7 is SqaureEnix digging themselves a grave on purpose or are they getting ready for a big surprise announcement at the 25th anniversary celebration?
