Kotaku is claiming, from “multiple sources” that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is cancelled.
Apparently the game was officially cancelled within the “last few weeks” and the decision has impacted morale at the developers Square Enix. Indeed, the rumour states that the game will be left to “die quietly on the vine and fade away” rather than getting an official cancellation announcement.
The game has only ever been seen in the form of occasional trailers and screenshots, despite being announced six years ago.
The same site suggests that the development and resources behind Versus XIII have been “folded into another game” – Final Fantasy XV, although it’s not clear what this actually entails.
“Whether it’s been cancelled entirely or had resources absorbed into a newer, larger project, the game we once knew as Final Fantasy Versus XIII would seem to be no more,” says Kotaku.
“We have no information on the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, but will be sure to update you as it becomes available,” is the current official line from Square Enix.
