It was neutral?
Lol so if u had a major game in development in one form or another for 6 years, millions of gamers interested in it, every major publication asking about it, and rumors flying everywhere its dead your response would be "We have nothing to announce about the future of FFvsXIII"?
That makes zero sense. Why wouldnt u simply say FFvsXIII is still in development but no further details are currently announced. They arent reassuring fans or investors in any way the games still alive.
Still hope im wrong though ive been hyped for this game for years
Sorry pal but first you are wrong about gameinformers supposed comfirmation and now you are missquoting.
SE said "We have no information on the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but will be sure to update you as it becomes available" not the future.
In simple terms they refuse to aknowledge anything Kotaku printed. I'm not taking sides.
Although that response from SE is a tad worrying, I think a company like SE have a rule that they do not comment on rumors otherwise people could just make up any rumors just to have answers.
