Despite rumors to the contrary last week, Square Enix's CEO has revealed that Final Fantasy Versus XIII has not been cancelled.
The reports originated from Kotaku, which quoted an unnamed source suggesting Square Enix had decided not to officially announce the game's cancellation due to stock price fears, but that work had ceased on it some months prior. According to Yoichi Wada, none of this was true as he confirmed via Twitter today that the game is alive and well.
"There's someone making a false rumour that Versus was cancelled," he said. "Haha... just a minute ago, the regular Versus meeting ended. If you saw the presentation of the city, it'd knock you off your feet - lol."
Many were convinced the game had been canned after a suspicious absence at E3 this year. When reports of the title's cancellation surfaced on Kotaku last week, Square Enix refused to comment on rumours or speculation, further fuelling our fears.
The fact that the game lives on, however, means the reported Final Fantasy XIII announcement expected in September could very well relate to it in some way. Considering the title has been in development since 2006, we're long overdue for some news.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII was originally announced in 2006 as part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series of games. The other two titles in the series announced at the same time, Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Type-0 have both been released, and Final Fantasy XIII-2 has also been announced and launched since
