Firstly, some info on who the two people in the topic title actually are:
- Phil Rogers is the President and CEO of Square Enix Europe and Square Enix America. He's currently in Tokyo this week and spending time at the Square Enix Japan HQ for meetings with the other executives. He's asking American and European fans for feedback they would like him to relay over to the Square Enix Japan management.
- Hiroyuki Ito is the Director of Final Fantasy VI, IX, and XII. He is also the Game Designer of Final Fantasy V and Tactics. He created many gameplay systems used in the FF series. However, he has not worked on any FF games since FFXII International, which released in 2007. Many fans would like him to direct FFXVI. You can find more info on Hiroyuki Ito here.
OK, with that out of the way, I can now explain the situation. Phil Rogers has been reading and making notes of fan replies to his recent blog post here.
I highly advise every FF fan to reply in the comment section of his blog post and voice that they really want Hiroyuki Ito as director of FFXVI. Go to the blog post above and comment that you want Hiroyuki Ito as director of FFXVI. Please spread the word, as most FF don't want Kitase/Toriyama helming FFXVI after they're done with the FFXIII trilogy.
Phil Rogers has also provided his direct e-mail. However, please make sure that you're polite if you e-mail him directly.
