Rumor: Final Fantasy Versus XIII Is Dead

It's been six years since Square Enix first showed Final Fantasy Versus XIII's debut trailer. Six long years. When that trailer premiered, George W. Bush was president, Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden were alive, and the global financial crisis had not yet hit. 2006 was a different world, a long, long time ago. (Final Fantasy XV, PS3, Square Enix)

well thats a bummer if true, but its not like nobody didn't see that possibility coming anyways. way to kill something with so much potential and instead give us bullshit like FF XIII, FFXIII-2, & allegedly FF XIII-3. Fuck off Sqaure

If its true tons of people will be pissed.

SE got enough projects on their hands. If any project should of died then it should of been sequels to FF13.

I'm sorry, but anyone who actually put his trust in SquareEnix and realistically thought this game was actually in development is delusional.

How many "shitty" titles did they release in 6 years? How many trailers/gameplay did they release for their sure hit gold farm Versus 13? Right.

That's the part that sucks the most. :(

If Versus XIII really had been cancelled due to financial reasons, then it's not only sad that such a good-looking game got canned, but also because Square have spent so much time and money in the last few years developing other games that are either average or not-asked-for by fans.

I don't think they should release it anymore anyway! Made people excited, built tremendous anticipation but left them in the dark! I called it, it's a VAPORWARE! Thanks but no thanks SE!
creatchee  +   1298d ago
IMO the only reason that there was any hype over this game was because of its PS3 exclusivity - and that was (obviously) coming from the PS3-only crowd. But in reality, it doesn't matter what console you make games for - if they're not good, they're not good. And Square hasn't been on par for a very long time. And there was nothing in any of the previews that looked like VS would have been life-changing or anything.

Sad that they may cancel it, but no sadder than any other game that gets canned.
Reibooi  +   1298d ago
I HIGHLY doubt this is true. SE knows that people have been waiting forever for this game and that many people consider it the last bastion of hope for SE in terms of making good games. With that knowledge they would be suicidal to cancel it.

The only way I can conceive this as being true is if the game is no longer being called VersusXIII and has been renamed FFXV as some other rumors have said in the past.

It also makes no sense that mere months ago we heard from Nomura that a official large scale unveiling of the game was soon to come(likely at TGS)
Darrius Cole  +   1298d ago

I disagree that the game was only popular because it was PS3 exclusive. I've always thought that FFvs13 looked more promising than FF13.

I don't put any stock in rumors from unnamed sources, especially rumors that only come from one internet site. You would think that if there was such a leak that one or more Japanese language sites would have it first.

This rumor, however, hits people deeply because it reinforces a fear. There has been so little news about FFvs13 the people were already fearing that it had become vaporware.

There is a chance that this game actually is vaporware. There is also a chance that the game has been rebranded FFXV. It never made sense to do a full-scale production for a spin-off game that would sell 2-3 million more copies simply by changing the name on the box.
morganfell  +   1297d ago
If it turns out FF XIII isn't cancelled it will be amazing to watch the irresponsible press begin their "I was only reporting news" dodge.

No you ignorant jerkwaters, you were propagating a rumor that if not true could still harm a company's financials an all because of your jump the gun idiocy.

It will also reconfirm (for the zillionth time) the press is the outright enemy of real gamers and they do more harm to gaming than any other entity.

I hope it just became FFXV, like the rumor that was released in May revealing that Versus may be multi-platform for the Wii U and PS3. If not then someone needs to start firing some people and replacing them with talent.

here is the link to the Wii U multiplat and re-branding rumor

I don't really think it's cancelled. It has everything going for it. Likeable characters (from what we've seen), dark like FFVII, great aesthetics, huge fan base, etc. If they can't perfect something that has been in dev. for six years then what makes Square-Enix believe that they can create FFXV? (assuming it's not FF-Versus rebranded)

"Square Enix, this source added, has also decided to let Final Fantasy Versus XIII die quietly on the vine and fade away, instead of officially announcing its cancellation.

WOW. That's just plain INSULTING and misleading.

That quote right there is what makes the rumor ridiculous imo. I know SE is pretty stupid (this gen anyway), but surely they cant expect ppl to just forget about the 1 title that looked to rival FF7. This game is one of THE MOST anticipated games this gen and you expect me to believe it'll get "The Last Remnant" treatment? Rumor woulda been believable if not for that.

If this is true, I will write "Square-enix" on my toilet paper for the next few weeks/

In what way do S-E see this as a correct move? When Versus has almost always had more love than FFXIII and been anticipated more. I mean really from a financial point of view(S-E#s only point of view). Why the hell are they wasting away on FFXiii sequels trying to fix that mess instead of trying with a new game completely?

I just hope they have at least the decency to tell us if this is true. Also, I wouldn't mind if it gets renamed 15/

+ it's just illogical, the amount of work already done of the game is too much to just throw away, it's been in 'full' development for over a year now, let alone the other 6 years. Remember the last trailer we got was from January last year.

You do realize that if Square goes bankrupt they won't be making ANY games right?

I'm not suggesting anyone buy a game they don't want but Square is also making a game called Versus. Do you want that game?

If you do it would make sense for you to want Square to succeed in the game market so they can finish Versus.

If everyone stopped buying games from Square until Versus is released they would go bankrupt before Versus is finished.

Surley a name change and shuffling a few things around with the FF13 mythology thats in Versus would be better and even cheaper then canceling a project they've put so much money into.

Final Fantasy Versus becoming FF15 would be better then just cancling this all together.

seeing how XIII-2 only managed to sell 500.000 copies on the 360, the difference wouldn't be that relevant to justify port it to anotheer plataform
greenpowerz  +   1298d ago
My number based on VGcharts... grain of salt alert
That's $30,000,000 from the 360 version. Not bad for a dying genre. Post the PS3 numbers please. The game has only sold 2,001,868 as of July 7th lol

Skip the 360 version of XIII-2 and only sell a little over a million copies on PS3?(I say "a little over a million" because I don't know if you're spinning your numbers or if you got them from VG-charts like my numbers)

If Versus is more than just a Turn base JRPG it will do great on 360. If they can add value for people's money with modern gameplay designs and production values the franchise will do better(replay value like Western RPGs, choice making etc). Making prettier cartoon movies/cutscenes will not interest core gamers.

The game is tarnished anyways, Sony prematurely announcing games and hyping them for years with no releases will severely damage the interest and confidence that this is a quality product. If anything it's either canceled or a multi platform game finally done right from these developers.

The Dog dragon game won't survive this tactic because it doesn't have the Big name like FF does. I forgot the name of the game. Little boy with a giant white DOG BEAST.

2000000 is not "a litlle over a million".

This is another case like gt5. And that did turn out very well commercially after all those years of hype.

And versus is exclusive so that they can take full advantage of the hardware. Maybe you are right and it becomes multiplatform and comes out on PS3 and the wiiU. That would make more sense than PS3 + 360. Since the 360 is almost unexistent on this game major market (Japan)
greenpowerz  +   1298d ago
@ above
Sorry I didn't make my comment clear enough.

My 2 million number came from VGcharts. For all I know he pulled his number out of his ass. I don't know if 360 sold more than 500,000 or not so I said a little over a million for PS3 knowing my numbers were probably bloated to begin with from VGcharts.

If you Google the game it was considered a major flop across the web and any specific console figures are months old.

500,000 + 1,500,000 = 2,000,000
Now take into account that the 2 mill from VGC is bloated and or donmingos was using numbers that favored his point that are skewed or not true. I told you where my numbers came from.

At this point in time, it would not be financially wise to do a multiplat issue regardless. Considering it took this long to built the game ground up for the PS3, having to port all those assets on the 360 (possibly the Wii-U) would require additional manpower and most possibly nearly doubling their resources.

If it were to be a multiplat, the safest bet is to release it as an exclusive and when SE decides there is enough revenue to push a port, it would do so.

Agreed. XIII had it's mistakes, but XIII-2 was a definite improvement and a solid 4-STAR game. I too welcome XIII-3 as I know it is being developed by a different team and won't impact the other titles.

The XIII titles were directed by Motomu Toriyama. He had never directed the core FF series before besides the also controversial X-2 and tried a new approach which just didn't work. His ideas have evolved with XIII-2 and I welcome a conclusion as they have the resources to complete his vision for those fans who are still interested, but I also doubt he will be given the directors chair again.

I will wait till TGS before I decide on this rumour, but the XIII brand is simply tainted and I think this game just could never live up to the expectations put on it by fans. "The last saving grace for SE" - It is just doomed to fail and faces the same problems as a VII remake. I hope to see it in a re-branded form still, but I think Ito's team and a massive open world FF:XV will be the best direction for their recovery.

Anyway I'm not interested in their obsolete conception of RPG games with boring turn based battle, random enemies and long CG cutscene. Meanwhile I enjoy two great rpg : Mass effect 3 and Skyrim. Ah! Only few weeks ago at E3 quare Enix President Yoichi Wada has claimed that he wants to ”surpasses The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” in gameplay, graphycs, and sales with the next FFXV Ahahahahahahaha this make my day ahaahahaha.

My pissed off level is Rising.. Final Fantasy Versus XIII had better NOT be cancelled.

If this is true it would mean that this is officially the worst gen in video games ever.

No proper Final Fantasy would just be abyssmal, not only that but if they announce FF13-3 its time for Wada to take a hike!

The game looked far along... and that was over a year ago.
If these assets are being “folded” into another Final Fantasy, then I’d wager it’s FF XV, and it will be great.

Please, for the love of fuck, be great.

Well this kinda ruined my day. Oh well, as long as they give me my final fantasy XIII-3 and start working on Kingdom Hearts 3 and we've got a deal square enix

I'm guessing they cancelled this project for the current generation and are going to move it into the next, perhaps as the same game but multiplatform, or as a new game but with the same assests.
If the game does resurface in one way or another I strongly feel it will become multiplatform. Everyone thought FF13 wouldn't go multiplat, but it did.

Same thing is going on with Agent. Either its quietly cancelled or going multiplat into the next generation. L.A. Noire anyone?

And the Last Guardian is just plain cancelled.

Yeah I think it's safe to say that Square does NOT want to cancel this game. If they do there's gonna be some serious nerd rage to pay.

I hope so. Got sick of being strung along by Square Enix and Nomura year after year.

*wait until FFXIII, then wait until FFXIII-2, next year will be the year will be Versus' turn...etc, etc

This would just piss off more FF fans. After the disappointment of FF 13 I thought FF Versus would be their comeback, earning the trust of FF fans.

but I remember reading an article where one of the SE's employers said that we do not have to worry and that FF Versus XIII will be released.

seriously?? So much potential down the drain if true :/

yeeeeeah fat chance. with all the want for this game why would square just ditch the game after such a long time.

its going to come, this is just a flaimbait article. they're just trying to get hits.

the game will come so im not worried. its tetsuya nomura's baby right now, highly doubt he would let it die so easy

If they do, then I'll never buy a game from them again.

I refuse to believe this news 'article' of Kotaku's. It's sad that they're resorting to these types of articles to garner website hits. Rumours will always be rumours, this is as sensationalist as it gets.

What pisses me off even more is that people here aren't even questioning this kind of article and are just accepting it as the truth.

Gotta love 'merica.

Interview in Gameinformer says otherwise, but ok.
