Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Is Dead

Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Is Dead

Ithink this is not true, the guy who post this is probably the worst "journalist" ever.



 

Around the Network

Actually I don't think they canceled it.

They talked a lot about it, they said it was almost completed, they said they were choosing things to show to the media.

Plus, it looks great and they worked on it for like 6 years.

Actually I expect some news at the Tokyo Game Show.



At first I thought Kotaku was sinking to tabloid levels, again.

But then again, it is a great way to add pressure to Square to make some short of an announcement. Force a scoop out of them by stirring up all the fans.

Nothing for something (by saying nothing I mean Kotaku's trustworthinesses)



Just a heads up to everyone crying about Kotaku lying, GameInformer is now also reporting its canceled. Thats two major sources now.

Still hope it isnt true



Kotaku, IGN, gameinformer are all saying the same BS. There is nothing new, all of the rumors are just piling up on the internet. FYI french sites are reporting it as well. On the other hand, they're also reporting news that Versus is still up and kicking.

Tabloid tactics don't qualify as lying, it's talking vaguely with little credibilty based on likelyhoods.

Yes, Versus being cancelled is a likelyhood given how long it's been since it was announced.

Worse case scenario for Kotaku is to say "our bad" but they get the attention anyway. It's a win - win for them.

By the way  GameInformer is just running the Kotaku story just like everyone else, confirm what you post before you post it, please.



Either way SE response to Kotaku pretty much confirms its dead IMO

Not at all. It was very neutral.

Like hell they would give Kotaku the scoop they were practiaclly beggin for.



I called this three years ago. I doubt the game was ever even in full production at any point in the last four years. Square Enix always prioritized shorter, less-ambitious projects at the expense of it. XIII, XIV, XIII-2... and it's likely with XIII-3 and XV coming over the next couple years that they realized there was no point in finishing it when it had taken this long to even get off the ground. That game never had a chance.




 

If this is true I'll be sad but not surprised. This pretty much looked like Final Fantasy: Kingdom Hearts. The gameplay/UI looked so similar, I was really looking forward to it (Because who the hell knows when we will actually see KH3)
