Final Fantasy XIII-3 rumors ahead of Square Enix announcement

We barely finished our eulogy for Final Fantasy Versus XII when rumors started popping up around the web that Square Enix is planning to announce yet another project in the FFXIII universe.

Specifically, the rumors have pegged it as Final Fantasy XIII-3. The speculation comes from the news that Square Enix will be holding an event to detail the future of Final Fantasy XIII on September 1. Given the cliffhanger-ish ending to XIII-2, some have begun to assume this will be an announcement of a sequel.

The event will also include a Final Fantasy XI musical performance, and many other stages dedicated to celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Final Fantasy series. This particular event is called "Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation" and will include members of the production team behind FFXIII and XIII-2.

    Square says "You all will enjoy Final Fantasy XIII!"

    If they are going to make FFXIII-3 than give it an actual ending and end the 13 series with it. You are not creating the season finally of a TV series, you are creating a $60 AAA game, so you have to have a real ending. That “To Be Continued……..” cliffhanger was pathetic and should have gotten FFXIII-2 a Flawed rating.

    XIII was blah, XIII-2 is a little better, but to me final fantasy series died after Hinoburo Sakaguchi and Nobuo Uematsu left SquareEnix which was mid final fantasy XII production I think

    Nothing will ever beat Final Fantasy IX in my books. Damn, such a perfect game!

    Best case scenario: they just renamed verses to FFXII-3 keeping the kingdom hearts style game play they showed in trailers, characters and just add lightning for brand recognition. Im cool with this. Worst case scenario: more FFXIII bullshit gameplay and an even more ridiculous story.

    Get off of the linear path and give me an open world , sort of final fantasy.

    and in the related articles i see "Square Enix says they'll avoid big internal productions after FFXIII-2" Make up your minds...

    Now, what I said in the versus cancellation article, this might be the big reason SE cancelled versus. Maybe a crossover... Ooooo :D
