Yeah it looks like this has been either canceled or that rumor of it being turned into FF XV was actually true. If it has been turned into XV I wonder if that means if it will be released next next gen. I'm thinking if it does turn out that way it will be next gen


The always infamous insider sources revealed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been cancelled in a report released on Friday.

In development since 2006, Kotaku has several sources that say the PS3 exclusive is done as it was originally intended with another saying that the project has cancelled altogether.

Additionally, Square Enix has allegedly decided to let game die quietly with no official cancellation announcement due to concerns over how such an announcement would affect stocks prices.

The game has been notoriously missing from the last few game announcements with only mentions by Square Enix to gaming publications such as Famitsu and Game Informer since the beginning of 2012. So far, only a handful of screenshots and a trailer of the game have been released.

"We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title," designer Tetsuya Nomura told Game Informer in May. "It always takes time when tackling the challenge of doing something completely new, but we are doing our best to bring information to the fans as quickly as we can. Your patience is greatly appreciated."


It was also reported that all of the work that was being done on Final Fantasy Versus XIII is now being folded into Final Fantasy XV. Whether that means assets or just personnel is currently unclear but it appears that Final Fantasy Versus XIII will never appear in its announced form.

If this is true this may be the last thing that stops me from buying any new square enix games. Hell VXIII was part of the reason I bought a PS3. But if it has been canceled they need to announce it publicly or at least tell their bond and stock holders. If not they could get in serious trouble for not announcing it mostly because their stocks would tank. That's what most people would call manipulating the value of their stocks.

Honestly, it's perfectly fair and legal to use pr strategies to cushion potential crashing. It's nothing at all like manipulating stock values, the only method that has officially been designated as market manipulating is insider trading. To the point, I don't see anything wrong economically. Morally, it's sickening that one of our favorite publishers that we have trusted from our adolesence into adulthood would betray us like this. This isn't the first time either; I can reference the time they changed xiii from exckusive to +xbox and pc, or the xiv debacle/failure. We are all sadden, infuriated, crushed, and shocked.

I can't call myself a square fan anymore. I just can't. I don't even have the will to write to them and demand change. I'm not going to even give them the satisfaction of caring anymore, they can set a new bar every year, and break new ground revolutionizing gameplay. I still won't give them a glance. I will trash talk square the way people trash talk EA or Bill O'Reilly or Tuna flavored ice cream. I guess what I'm saying is I'm not just a lost fan, I'm an antifan. I hate Square with every fiber of my being.

I heard rumors that they're going to be cancelling FF13 Versus because they're starting on another project called Final Fantasy XV

Someone has mistaken the new Final Fantasy XIV trademark for Final Fantasy XV. If the game happens to be cancelled, might be for some other reason. Besides, I don't think SE would cancel such important game after so much work and teasing. Time will tell.

If it's not cancelled, then perhaps they're only going to extend the games release date more further.

With the release of the new engine (the one used in Agnis Philosophy) and SE wanting to use Versus XIII as guinea pig to implement their Luminous Engine, there's a pretty high chance they're gonna make Versus a new game/project for the next gen, because SE wanted the game to be something new and totally revamped, so it might proably gonna turn into Final Fantasy XV (as stated in this thread) or a new project or standalone game.

Well, despite Kotaku's usual page hit fishing(hint hint, Nate), it's absolutely not true.

http://andriasang.com/con20p/ff_versusxiii_cancel/


Final Fantasy Versus XIII has not been cancelled, Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada said today via Twitter. Rumors that the long awaited sister project to Final Fantasy XIII and FF Type-0 had been cancelled first surfaced late last week.

In addition to denying the rumor, Wada said that he'd just taken part in a periodic meeting for the game. He remarked that the quality of the cityscape demonstrated during the presentation could make you lose your footing.

yea, kotaku is just not a reliable site for any gaming news, since half of their "sources" tend to be one insane guy in a forum. i'd say andriasang and siliconera is your best bet for reliability

I'm very glad they didn't cancel Versus. Square Enix wouldn't dare doing something like that since FF XIV almost put Final Fantasy name to shame. I think they are having a hard polishing and implementing new things, that's all. I'm sure this game gonna be really amazing =D

Is this gonna be a PS3 exclusive or were they gonna share the love with Xbox like they did for FFXIII? I really don't want to by a PS3 again.

It's still supposed to be an exclusive but that could change. But the news about halo 4 multiplayer could actually make a VXIII be possible on the 360 that's if Microsoft allowed 8 to 16 gig downloads and a 3 or 4 disc game.

I highly doubt this game will ever come out, especially cause it was never shown in TGS 2012 or in Square's Final Fantasy conference. This is officially a vaporware game,
Posted 11/18/12
Dude, I been looking forward to this game for 6 DAMN years. I cant wait for it. IT will come out.
