Square Enix provided several updates in regards to some projects. According to a report from Gameranx on April 8, the publisher first revealed that “Final Fantasy X-3” is not in development although the direct sequel was hinted with the recent release of “Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD Remaster” on the PS3.
The remastered port contains an audio drama epilogue that talked about the events following the conclusion of “Final Fantasy X-2.” It hinted at the futures of some the the main characters from the two games in the collection. Square Enix previously revealed that a second sequel could have been made based on the success of the PS3 collection. However, it appears that the company won’t be going through with the plans.
A brief update was also provided for “Final Fantasy XV.” The development for the PS4 and Xbox One video game is apparently “going well” although Square Enix has kept quiet on the project recently.
“Final Fantasy XV” was announced at last year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo and should make another appearance in the same event later this June. The video game was first shown at Sony’s media briefing before being announced later for the Xbox One. A recent update from Sony Computer Entertainment in regards to PS4 2014 releases did not list the action role-playing game, suggesting that it may not be launching this year.
The original name of “Final Fantasy XV” is “Final Fantasy Versus XIII.” The video game was announced as a PS3 exclusive approximately eight years ago at E3 2006. However, Joystiq reported that Square Enix decided to move the project to the PS4 and Xbox One due to the technical limitations of Sony’s current-generation console. Both next-generation systems offer 8 GB of system RAM along with powerful CPUs and GPUs, giving the development team more resources to work with.
