It’s been six years since Square Enix first showed Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s debut trailer. Six long years. When that trailer premiered, George W. Bush was president, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden were alive, and the global financial crisis had not yet hit. 2006 was a different world, a long, long time ago.
Now Kotaku has learned that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is no more.
One source tells Kotaku that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was officially cancelled within the last few weeks.
Square Enix, this source added, has also decided to let Final Fantasy Versus XIII die quietly on the vine and fade away, instead of officially announcing its cancellation. This would likely be due to the fact a public acknowledgement of a Versus’ cancellation could impact things like Square Enix’s stock prices.
Another source tells Kotaku that, a few months back, Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s development and resources had actually been folded into another game, which is to be the next numeric Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy XV.
Square Enix has a Final Fantasy event coming up in Tokyo in late August and September. One of the stage events is centered on the Final Fantasy XIII Project and the Lightning saga (so a Final Fantasy XIII-3 reveal?). None of the announced stage events center around Final Fantasy Versus XIII, something that Japanese gamers were quick to point out on game sites and blogs.
일병아찌가 몇년을 일편단심으로 목욕재계하며 기다려오던 파판vs13.
파판 version 2013이 되는건가 싶더니
아예 캔슬이 되었다는 소식/루머.
스퀘닉스의 주가에 영향을 끼칠까봐 그냥 조용히 쉬쉬하면서 캔슬하고
그동안 작업했던것들은 파판15로 돌려 굴릴거라나 뭐라나.
뭐 믿거나말거나 루머라지만 일단은 ㅈㅁㅁ 일병아찌.
짤방은 목욕재계하는 일병 (이미지샷).
