Another day, another Final Fantasy related rumor.
Kotaku is reporting that over 6 years after it was announced Final Fantasy Versus XIII development has officially ended.
Citing an unknown ’source’, Kotaku stated the following hours ago:
“Final Fantasy Versus XIII was officially cancelled within the last few weeks. The decision impacted morale at Square Enix and staff were reportedly saddened by the move.
While Sqaure Enix does have a track record this gen for not publically confirming a game’s fate, see The Last Remnant for PS3, other insiders are crying foul to Kotaku’s claim.
Senior US Editor for RPGSite.net ( and a resourceful source for all things Square Enix ) Erren Van Duine responded to the rumor on Neogaf, stating that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is alive and kicking and will be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.
[The Kotaku rumor] goes against information I was told quite recently, which was that Nomura is hard at work on the game and something of it will be shown at TGS.
