Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Has Died A Quiet Death
We told you it was nothing more than vaporware.
It has been six years since we first caught sight of the impressive Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and all we've had since that time are constant promises that say we'll get more info "soon." Now, according to Kotaku, it seems the anticipated title is no more.
"Several sources" have apparently said the game was officially cancelled within the last few weeks. Sadly, it was a decision that has hit Square Enix staff pretty hard, as morale is now quite low. On top of which, we may never know the real truth of the matter, as it seems Square Enix doesn't want to make any sort of announcement. They'd rather just let it fade away over time, possibly because a confirmation could result in declining stock value.
Earlier this year, there were rumors that Versus XIII had actually become Final Fantasy XV, thanks to a leaked video. But that was confirmed as fake, right? Still, it seems more possible than ever that whatever was Versus XIII has been - or is currently being - incorporated into the next installment in the primary franchise. That might not be a bad thing.
Still, if true, this is just more disappointment to heap atop the already depressing pile of disappointments for Square Enix fans this generation. Well, at least as far as Final Fantasy is concerned...and I still say I had fun with both FFXIII and FFXIII-2.
