Kotaku is reporting that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been cancelled.
The site is quoting ‘several sources’ who have said that the game, as originally intended, is done for.
One source told Kotaku that Final Fantasy Versus XIII was officially cancelled within the last few weeks, which apparently impacted morale at Square Enix.
The last we heard of the game was back in March, when Square’s Nomura told Famitsu ”We’re almost done with preparing the latest info for the game.”
Then in May, Nomura once again commented on the game, saying to Game Informer, “We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title. 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.”
Final Fantasy Versus XIII has been in development for around six years, although not a lot has ever been heard or seen of the game since it was first announced.
When Kotaku contacted Square Enix about whether or not Final Fantasy Versus XIII was still in development, it released the following statement: “We have no information on the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but will be sure to update you as it becomes available.”
Not sounding too promising is it?
