Could Kingdom Hearts III Be In Production? Final Fantasy Versus XIII Has Been “Cancelled”

KHPlanet: Despite six years of being in production, Final Fantasy Versus XIII is rumored to be cancelled so what does this mean for Kingdom Hearts fans? Maybe Kingdom Hearts 3. Read on for more details. (Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts 3, PS3)

Update Just for clarification, Final Fantasy Versus XIII has not been cancelled. This was placed as a rumor when posting this article.

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 30

Could? it should have been in production years ago, for fucks sake. if square wasn't pouring resources into re-ports and sequels no one asked for hell we would probably have both kingdom Hearts 3 & Verus XIII by now. but no, like seriously how many times are they gonna port old FF games, and supposedly a FFXIII-3 is now in the works. the one question i ask myself is who is asking for this. like honestly who asked for a FFX HD remake? nobody..... who asked for FFXIII-2? nobody..... who asked for KH3? EVERBODY!!!!!!!!!! whos been asking for just a damn release date let alone more gameplay for Versus XIII? EVERYBODY!!!!!

Fuck Off Square

It isnt cancelled, they have simply been looking for a way to make it multiplat without causing suicedes.

It will come out heavily modified but improved under the name of Final Fantasy XV on PS3 AND 360 and perhaps WiiU.

That way SE is happy because it will finally be multiplat and PS3 loyalists cant say they made Versus multiplat.

FFX remake made me happy because i can play a decent ff game in good graphics and trophies....dont wont a ff13-3

Exactly, they can't release one game everybody wants but they can pump out 40 + hour stories of FFXIII and are now possibly announcing a XIII-3. Not to mention their spinoffs on wii and ds.

I hope both are still alive. I would like to see a KH 3 and FF Versus XIII.

There's a fact here, and it's that short time ago a new title entered production phase. My thoughts here are either on FF15 or KH3.

As they're not hiring a lot of new people, the team behind FF13/13-2 (that were actually working on versus, as stated some months ago) and the KH Team working on Versus 13 were split into 3 groups, I think: two big ones (major production starting) for FF15 and KH3, and another smaller one, as the major work should be done, still with V13.

What does this mean? Basically, if you can still bear with my english, that V13 is entering the "final lap", and new projects are in the works. Be ready for some surprises in september 1-2 (there will be no final fantasy 13-3 for ps3, I predict).

Until confirmation from Square, Versus being cancelled is just a rumor.

I hope this rumor is fake. It was my most anticipated game.

Just by looking at the CGI, gameplay and some voice acting from Jan2011 trailer, it look like the game was progressing. It looked like millions of $ have been spent on the game.

Abandoning it all for KH3 makes no sense because wouldn't Tetsuya Nomura be pissed off (I assume it was his game/idea or even his dream project) and forced to work on KH3?

He directed all of thr KH games on PS2, PSP and 3/DS, so he's the only one that can direct KH3. Another director will suck. Maybe he's leaving Sqaure Enix if true.

Versus being cancelled was proved to be just a rumor yesterday. And people still continue to make articles based on those rumors? lolbloggers.
Afterlife  +   759d ago
I hate how IGN is acting like this rumor is real. They have 3 videos of it on youtube. They know it's a rumor but they believe it. Or do they know something we don't?
AsheXII  +   759d ago
They just want hits im afraid. i might be wrong but i think its not the first time kotaku has come up with false rumors about versus XIII, and IGN is riding the traffic.
mt  +   759d ago
i lost hopes in SE. if they will release it it will be On DS.
Xperia_ion  +   759d ago
When this comes out we should never forgive Kotaku.
NBT91  +   759d ago
Idk but it wouldn't surprise me if KH3 does release before Versus. IMO its a win win situation here; if VS is cancelled then work can finally start on KH3 which is very good, if not we are still eventually getting versus so true or not; we are getting a great game from SE one way or the other, right?

Versus XIII is the only reason i'm still a fan of the series, and they cancel it.

I don't know, they have to really win me over with their next game. And no, i'm not talking about XIII-3. Screw that game.
Lucretia  +   759d ago
dude dont fall for the internet lies lol. its not canceled nor has it been confirmed to be canceled.

the flambaiters are trying to make sure that game gets buried and gets hate towards it.

the game will come out, no worries on that and since its been in full production for 2 years im sure we have 1 year or a lil bit more for the game to launch.

and personally, i want ff13-3. the ending screams for its need in 13-2. tho i much rather have versus :P.

How can it be "Canceled" without it actually being confirmed? Get over yourself and wait for an official statement from Square.
Lucretia  +   759d ago
exactly. people are taking the rumor as if its a fact.

they are stupid, if they have never canceled a game before why would they cancel a highly anticipated game?

even ff13 started development on the ps2, then they scrapped the whole thing and started over on the ps3.

at worst case thats what would happen to versus. there is a complete script already, costumes designed, gameplay done. all they have to do is finish it and since its only been in real production for 2 years then it will come out soon enough.

Don't believe ondors lies.
princejb134  +   759d ago
Square never confirmed versus 13 is cancelled
It's just a rumor by kotaku so people have to stop jumping into conclusions
chrispen9  +   759d ago
Has anyone actually read the article? I constantly say that it is a rumor. This article is actually classed as a rumor if you look closely enough.... I'm not stating this as a fact at all.
