Final Fantasy XV rumoured to be directed by Hiroyuki Ito of FFXII fame
Gamesmaster UK has posted a rumour about Final Fantasy 15, which sounds really promising. Check them out below and with a pinch of salt.
-Including the concept planning and pre-production phase, the game has already been in development for over 4 years.
-It entered full production in January 2010, a month after FFXIII was released in Japan. Since then it has had a development team of just over 200 people.
-The director is the same person who directed FFVI, FFIX and FFXII, Hiroyuki Ito.
-The co-director led a small part of the development team to make Tactics Ogre for the PSP in parallel with FFXV. He’s currently multi-tasking as lead UI designer of FFXIV 2.0 and co-director of FFXV.
-The game design and battle system will be a major evolution of FFXII.
-The game will be open world and have sprawling, crowd-filled cities on par with Assassin’s Creed.
-The battle system now allows you to target different parts of an enemy’s body like in Vagrant Story.
-Yoichi Wada (president of Square Enix) wants the game to have a world scale and volume of content that surpasses The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He also wants the game to surpass FFVII in worldwide sales and critical reception.
-Will release on all major current gen platforms.
