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.

    What made Final Fantasy great was that it was original, not
    a Assasin’s Creed/Elder Scrolls ripoff. Also Final Fantasy VII is a part of
    gaming history. Trying to surpass it is like saying “I’m going to write a
    book that will surpass Hamlet!” or “I’m in a band that will surpass
    the Beatles!” Granted, my fave FF is Final Fantasy VI, but FFVII is still
    a masterpiece, and is NOT overrated. You don’t create a game with the intent of
    surpassing a masterpiece in any type of media, such thinking is egotistical on
    Wada’s part. I love the old school FF (IV, VI, and VII especially) because of
    Active Time Battle, great music, memorable plot and characters. An open world,
    real time battle Final Fantasy is proof that FF is still dead. These changes seem
    like an attempt to pander perceived western tastes, not innovation, and I
    staunchly disapprove if this is true.
