As always, with the stonewalling.
Recently a story on how Final Fantasy Versus XIII is indeed being renamed to Final Fantasy XV besides making its way to the PS4 as an exclusive with Sony helping Square Enix with development was doing the rounds. This, on top of the game being identified on a clothing retailer’s site as the same.
However, when Ripten decided to ask Square Enix for a response, they simply said “No comment”. The classic “don’t deny, don’t confirm” approach, sure, but consider the source – VGLeaks – and their outing of the Durango aka Xbox 720 SDK which was backed by Edge’s sources. So at least we know there might be some credibility to what the site has to offer.
And even if it’s not true, even if Versus XIII is still the same game (which seems unlikely given the changes that are said to have been implemented), that we could finally have some news on its release is all that really matters anymore.
As always, take this as a rumour.
