Game Informer says Square Enix intentionally left XIII-2's story incomplete and the announcement of XIII-3 is "inevitable".
Something told me this was going to happen :(
Say it isn't so!!
I wouldn't be surprised. Square Enix is so out of touch with it's fanbase they will probably make another one and say "Oh ya! The fans asked for another sequel to this awesome RPG!" Seriously I could care less. As long as they finish Final Fantasy Versus XIII and start development on Kingdom Hearts III before they even start developing Final Fantasy XIII-3 than they can do it. I don't care about it anymore.
Its so disgusting. Now I hate $E so much that I would no longer buy any of games related to them, even if its good like Deus Ex:HR, Tomb Raider.
No, Squeenix, just no. FF13 is one of the worst (that doesn't mean it's completely bad, I enjoyed it) main FFs ever made. If you're going to do a sequel to something, do it for the better FFs! It just makes sense. Also FF7 remake or GTFO.
SE has become nothing but FF13... FF13-2, FF13-3, FFvs13, other 13 versions on mobile and handheld devices..... Whatever happened to making a Final Fantasy game then moving on.. and why do fake generic games that are mmorpg's like FF14 have to hog a whole sequel in the FF series? FF7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - identity crisis.
There is no doubt, the end of the game(best one) ses "to be continued" which is an unfortunate thing
Say it isn't so http://www.youtube.com/watc... Well, I'm not surprised by this at all.
Wow, I wish I could. Squarenix need to stop making sequels no one really wants in the first place and accept Christ. "Thou shalt not spin thy neighbours game off."
To be fair no FF except for 10 every carried on from another and since FF has been getting less hype with each release S-E are obviously going in a new direction. I like it personally as it was getting a little stale anyway the old system we have already got upto 13.
I wonder if even that is gonna be released before Versus?!
Being sarcastic right? :P I can't believe SE want to push this thing so much, well, lets see how much it bombed when it's released :D Where is VSXIII?
Not sure if sarcastic or serious... ¬¬ The sad thing is that with SE you don't know anymore
If FF13-3 is made i wouldnt be suprised. SE is out of touch with its fans. This company is called Square Enix, they suck. They are not Squaresoft, lets not forget that. The people who like SE are the same people who like the taste of dog poop, IMO. p.s former SE and FF fan (i left them after FF13)
I was going to say the same thing, FF13 ruined the series for me & Square Enix are NOT Squaresoft.
How can FF13 ruin the series? Isn't every Final Fantasy game just a completely different story that takes place in a similar universe (I assume because chocobos persist)? It's not like any of the crappy Mario games ruined Mario for me. Just play the ones you want and forget the others exist. Since the storylines are discrete, there's no reason for the entire franchise to be ruined by a few crappy titles.
"Isn't every Final Fantasy game just a completely different story that takes place in a similar universe (I assume because chocobos persist)?" Pretty much, every other game was a complete story, not chopped up and sold as a sequel or as DLC. Also, I had a feeling they were gonna do a 3rd game a while ago when they trade marked a FF13 site using a company that they've used before (one of which they for SE did was Dues Ex).
Bunch of annoying complainers, Final Fantasy 13 is a good game, and it was a change in the series that it needed drastically, get over it. I mean I loved the series just as much as anybody, but I just felt it needed to be changed, and the direction they took with 13 was a good one. If it's such a bad game to all these so called "fans" then why have the reviews for both 13 and 13-2 been remarkably high? They're doing something right clearly, and millions enjoy the game, and enjoy the change inside of it.
"Bunch of annoying complainers" No one is a complainer for hating a game which ruined the FF franchise, it's going to happen and for good reasons... "Final Fantasy 13 is a good game" ........<sigh>.....not even going to bother......NEXT.... "it was a change in the series that it needed drastically" It didn't need changing it was fine where it was, if people can play the same Mario/Pokemon/Zelda games over and over then I don't see why FF was a problem. Hell even turn based combat was fine and Lost Odyssey prooved that. "get over it" Sorry but people don't like to be b*tched around by Square
So you would rather the game stay exactly the same as it has been for over 10 years, and you don't want any type of change? That doesn't make any damn sense. Look at other masterpiece series like Metal Gear, it changes A LOT of stuff around every single game, but they all still manage to be masterpieces regardless, especially 4 which is the most different of all. So why don't you want that for Final Fantasy? It's stupid to not accept change.
The basic gameplay is still very much the same in MGS, the changes are all logical improvements, that's a very bad comparison. IMO FF12 had an awesome battle and level up system. They should've taken the core elements of that and improved on it. Instead they made even battling and leveling up linear, not just the levels. There was an illusion of freedom in cha racter development but that was just an illusion. Even the weapon upgrades were linear because the only effective way to go with it was to choose one weapon and focus on it. You had to grind those damn turtles for like 10 hours just to get 2 or 3 ultimate weapons. Also there was nothing else to do than grind, do hunts and look at the scenery. You really think that was something FF needed desperately?
FF fans are used to change every FF instalment has changes from the last one so it all stays fresh. change is not a problem.. but changing to much is.. they changed so much in 13 that it became a different game, i mean how can u have a FF game without airships and a world map? ..i could go on
@Anderson8 There are FFs without airships and world map ... this complain is just silly. @Wintersun616 FF7 had an awesome battle system and that didn't prevent SquareSOFT (!!) just just kill it and do something else with FF8 . Your argument is invalid. @PamPoovey If you're not going to bother because you don't have an argument , then you can also accept the facts.. FF13 is a good game , a good rpg , just a bad FF ... But it's a game that can be enjoyed. Nobody is saying that it's perfect or anything like that ... it's a flawed game no doubt ... and if things can be improved in a sequel , why the hate ? BiggCMan is right , you're all are just annoying complainers.
What? How does that make my argument invalid? Sorry, but I don't catch your drift here.
@Redempteur LOL Because I don't have an argument....yest thats excatly the reason, OR MAYBE it's because I couldn't be arsed to repeat what I've said it the past and most people have said on here. Don't try and twist peoples comments with made up BS it's sad.
I've been playing Pokemon since its release with red and blue and it has changed in recent years but mainly the core turn based exploration of the game has more or less stayed the same except black and white those two were horrible compared to silver/ruby. Which is why I guess a lot of didn't like FF13 it changed too much. I loved it and finished playing it twice already. if FF had changed a little but enough to keep the core ame intact I think a lot less people would mad at squenix
Sad to ditch FF just because it went multiplatform.
FF has been on every platform accept Sega. Can't lose something that was never exclusive in the first place. Everyone would be rich if your tears were made of gold.
"Except" not accept. And as for ditching it, its more along the lines of them getting greedy as hell and screwing fans over lately.
lol you're down to 1 bubble. Look where all that trolling got you!
Hhmmm ironic. A one bubble troll trying to call out another troll. That's rich. Lol.
There's no Hironobu Sakaguchi either.
they need to released final fantasy vs 13 first before that start working on ff13xiii3
It'd be ridiculous if XIII-3 (if it exists) is out before Versus XIII, but we are talking about Square here. The people who brought a sequel no-one really wanted or asked for. I don't care at this stage. I'm convinced Versus will be out within the next 18 months, and it'll b*tch slap the rest of these XIII games.
If you really want to know if there will be a FF13-3 just youtube the perfect ending for it and you'll see saw it yesterday and shook my head.
Why not? Eveyone does trilogies right? Too bad this will be out before Versus.
Then in that case I want to play Final Fantasy X-3, as that stops after 2 games (and I want to play as Jecht, Auron, and Braska!)
You ask too much. :P
i dont think a 3rd will come out
It's already gonna be announced a year from now. After all square did say that they'll be switching to a 1-2 year development cycle for FF games! Expect it!
This has got to be some kind of sick joke...
Are they just trying to tick us off now.....come on, theres more people in the world who hate FF13, why not move on so your new game can please all of us and not just the small group of people who like FF13.
I know, instead of lying to themselfs and trying to push FF13 down peoples throats they have a better chance at making FF15 to appeal to everyone then continue with FF13 when only the minority of people like the game, I mean sure thats see a lot of people in the minority but the majoirty of us hate the game and with good reasons. They should make FF15 to appeal to everyone and not just one fanbase.
"majority?" you see there you go again thinking the internets complainers are actually the "majority" no your the voiced loud vocal majority, which is in truth the minority, its the same concept as with call of duty, you really believe people all hate call of duty more than like it, but the truth is far more people like it than act like they hate it on the internet, i dont know why you got 2 agrees for that that you said
@GamingTruth But it's not just the internet, FF13 has been torn to bits by a ton of people who didn't like the game. More people hate FF13 then like it, thats why he's got agrees, if your basing peoples comments of the agree/disagree ratio then obviously your wrong because you have 3 more disagrees then agrees. When someone says majority in a comment it's so they don't get the "Your not the voice of everyone" complaints. When you use that term in a sentence your also acknowledging people who like the game but also know theres a bigger side of people out there who share the same opinion as you.....it's differen't if he went "Everyone hates FF13" because THEN he would be speaking for everyone. Jeez.....FF13 fans are the worst. Is it cool now to hate on the "haters" of this game...are you guys so in denial, I don't mind people liking the game, mainly because the "majority"...and I said majority, not you....havent played the old classic FF games, but come on it's not very well liked, and it's not just an internet thing. Oh by the way, you have no real way to find out if people like COD or not just because it has good sales it dosen't mean anything...it's all about being social, like kids in school it's a well talked about thing if you don't play it people will not include you in their social converstations so it forces most people to go out and play it.
pam poovey so you can prove its not just an internet thing, just like you can prove mw3 hate isnt just an internet thing, the only reason it wouldnt be just an internet thing is if the internets logic and belief system and brainwashing seeps out THEN its not just an internet thing cause the internet brainwashing is now happening in places like the media and then in gamestop and other outlets, but no people in general on their own dont feel the same way as you and others on the net outside the internet til they are brainwashed
I played Deus Ex a while back and saw the Final Fantasy XXVIII poster and thought to myself "more like FF XIII-XXVIII".
Dear Square Enix, SLOW THE FUCK DOWN. Just continue making the games you have already announced, finally release them...THEN worry about completely new FF games. Sincerely, Me
S-E thought than the same formula that work with Assassin's Creed series will be EVER work with their games. Just look over the Ezio outfit for Noel, that's the right sight of what S-E is really trying to do... and that's a fact just look over the FFXIII-2 true ending.
I could see if they had originally planned to make a trilogy how this might be a good thing, but they didn't. They're literally pulling this out their @$$ and making things up as they go. Nevermind that the first "part" was crap.
So they are going for quantity over quality
I'm one of the people that Loved FF13 and I'm still not going for 13-2. Don't even scare me with 13-3... I want FF versus before 13-3 or my head might pop.
The story was the biggest letdown in FFXIII for me. I hear the story in FFXIII-2 is even worse. I'll still buy it but certainly not day one like I did for FFXIII, this will be a bargain bin purchase from now on.
I'm doing the same or better yet wait for the ultimate/complete version which includes all the DLC if such thing happen.
Square can do anything it wants but first will have to release FFX HD and FFV13 ASAP.
GOOD GRIEF! Let XIII-2 come out in peace 1st, THEN feel free to mention whatever else. Things like this kind of ruins the momentum of a game before it's even released.
Actually they're not going to do a FF13-3. What they plan on doing is selling the Lightning DLC (which is basically the ending) as DLC. It would be the first time a ending was sold as DLC either (Ubisoft sold the Prince of Persia ending as DLC).
I guess this third installment will be their best by now they would have more time to improve the gameplay and work out the kinks.
There isn't a facepalm jpeg on the internet big enough to describe how I feel right now.
To those of you saying FF13 was a great game, shut up. It was not. It IS not. It certainly does NOT deserve to be a part of the pedigree that is Final Fantasy. YOU are the reason Square Enix sucks. You settle for the mediocrity and linearity that they shovel down our throats and ask for more. FFXIII had the WORST story, the WORST characters, the WORST gameplay of any FF game to date. The ONLY saving graces were the music and the environment. But SE were able to cash in on the FF name and managed to make some sales, then they COMPLETELY ignored the majority of people who said the game was awful and said "hey, let's make another game with this same battle style" and came out with FFXIII-2. And now, thanks to people like you, they think we'd be happy with a multiple game series for ONE FRICKIN GAME IN A SERIES! Whoever let game developers think that auto-battling and hands off style was a good idea needs to be smacked upside the head with a 2x4 repeatedly. Frickin' Enchanted Arms was blasted for it's hands off, and boring style but FFXIII has a cult, niche following of in-denial, ignorant gamers who have no idea of the standards FF used to have, nor have the qualifications to criticize those of us who've been with the series forever as being rigid and resistant to change. FF changes with each game, but NORMALLY the changes were GOOD! FFXIII and XIII-2 broke that, becoming steadily worse thanks to a poorly skewed idea of what is "western." So please, do all the true FF fans a favor and just keep your clearly misguided opinion to yourself, lest SE think that we want more FFXIII.
Speaking of Enchanted Arms, anyone notice how much XIII-2 is like it? Hands off auto-battling, monsters in your team but they are very restricted in what they can do and are essentially outclassed by the human characters, out of place kid. And then it takes the interesting Chrono Trigger concept of multiple endings, and just craps all over it. So it takes pretty much the core of a below average RPG, the unique idea of a better RPG, and mixes other lame ideas to make one bad continuation in an awful sub-series of a larger main series of games that went from amazing, to god awful thanks to the number 13. That number really is bad luck.
This guy speaks the truth. FFXIII would be an OK game, maybe, if it was some other stand-alone title....but it is certainly not worthy of being a Final Fantasy. Unless you have been playing since the first one on the NES (which hilariously enough has tons more exploration, unlike our modern cutting-edge FF games), than you can't talk about how great FFXIII is. All it takes is a journey through the first 6 to see how awesome they used to be....and that's before you even get to the 3-D versions on PS1.
I don't understand why you have two bubbles. You deserve 7 for proving what's become of the modern FF games (excluding ported versions to the PSP and DS, SE being greedy imbeciles as always). Dammit is Square fucking blind and deaf? Can't they not hear what were shouting or read what were messaging to them? We don't want more shit from this already rotting shit. We want true quality FF games like Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Listen to the people Square! Lol sometimes I wish V existed so he would simply blow up one of Square's headquarters so they would finally pay attention to the people.
Amen dude, if the game was worse than the previous installments then how can it be good? I feel sorry for the people who says this game is great when it's basically trampling on its pedigree. Are people's standards becoming lower these days?
FFXIII and XIII-2 share the same characters but the story itself has nothing to do with each other, the game's basically a spin-off anyway. And on top of that XIII-2 has no real ending, all of them are open but FFVII Cerberus had an open ending but the game never received a sequel. Saying that a XIII-2 sequel is inevitable is kind of retarded because if the game doesn't sell well then you can be sure that FFXIII-3 will never happen. And is not like the XIII-2 story is that great either based on reviews....
HOOOOLLLLYYYYY! ANGELINA JOOOLLLLIIIEEE!!! Just give us Versus XII already...
I bet if Final Fantasy XIII grace the name "Final Fantasy XIII", sales and review scores would've been MUCH MUCH lower. Oh and please, no fucking sequel from this garbage. I want a true promising game like Versus XIII.
wow this just piss me off even more now. they fucking new when they started doing this time jumping shit how the fuck was it going to go with the original story-line? see omg i only play final fantasy game for the amazing story but this is just getting stupid now. also i want to play as the original character again. not lighting sister nor the fucking new dude that just come out of no where omg rage*
