Square-Enix To Confirm PS3 MMO At GDC
The Game Developers Conference 2008 is only a week away, and there is the possibility we will see the official unveiling of Square-Enix's new MMORPG for the PS3.
According to the official GDC 2008 website, four members of the veteran publisher will be speaking at the event, and one of them is Taku Murata, the head of Square-Enix Research & Development. He'll be talking about the process regarding engine development, plus the confirmation of a new MMORPG. "The new game engine will be used for FINAL FANTASY XIII, new MMORPG under development, and other titles in the future." Now, Forever-Fantasy is speculating this mystery game is actually Final Fantasy Haresis XIII, a MMO scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 3 at some point down the road. It uses the White Engine - like FFXIII - and it could be one hell of a great addition to the PS3's library. Besides, it's always good when a console gets one of the MMO genre.
Obviously, this should be confirmed at the conference, so we'll just wait for the final word in one week's time. However, in the meantime, it's always fun to wonder, speculate, and even expect.
