Rumor: Square Enix To Reveal Final Fantasy XV At E3 2012
Yeah, that'd be pretty freakin' huge, wouldn't you agree?
According to one source citing publication GamesMaster UK, Square Enix has a big surprise planned for the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy.
And that surprise will supposedly be an unveiling of Final Fantasy XV at E3 next year. The game will be announced "during a special Square Enix E3 2012 press conference," and the new installment will come to both the Wii U and PC as well as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In the past, FFXIII producer Yoshinori Kitase did say he'd like to bring the revered franchise to the Wii U at some point; Nintendo hasn't seen the series in quite some time. And I think the last PC release was FFVIII.
With Final Fantasy XIV being a MMORPG and Final Fantasy XIII-2 essentially in the books (it's out in Japan), it'll be interesting to see what Square Enix does for the next true-blue entry. Some are holding their breath, others...well, aren't holding their breath.
