As you may remember, very recently there was a rumor swirling around the internet about the development status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which led to rumors from both sides either stating the project had been cancelled or that it was still on course for release. We then followed up with an article giving a view from both sides, and explaining why it’s always worth waiting to hear from the officials rather than jumping to conclusions.
And here’s exactly why you should always reserve judgement. CEO of Square-Enix, Yoichi Wada, decided to make a comment via Twitter today, shortly after leaving a meeting where the focus point was Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Here’s what Wada had to say:
“There’s someone making a false rumor that Versus was cancelled. Haha…Just a minute ago, the regular Versus meeting ended. If you saw the presentation of the city, it’d knock you off your feet~lol”
Recently there have been a lot of rumors swirling around the net concerning the development status of Square-Enix’s highly anticipated action RPG, Final Fantasy Versus XIII. The rumor started at Kotaku, with them being told by their source that development of the title had been cancelled so as to focus on the next numerical FF title, Final Fantasy XV.
The rumor suggests that Square-Enix planned to let the game just slowly fade into even further obscurity until people forget, rather than make a statement about it, as this could go badly with shareholders.
Shortly after this hit, the net went ablaze with rumors stating that the game either is or isn’t cancelled. This even followed shortly after with a rumor that development had began on Final Fantasy XIII-3, although this is likely unrelated and highly possible as a sequel has been hinted at in the past.
