Development and resources shifted over to Final Fantasy XV, claims source

Square Enix has cancelled its long in-development title Final Fantasy Versus XIII, according to a report.

Sources speaking to Kotaku have claimed that the publisher has dropped the game, at least as originally intended, and had also decided to let the game fade away rather than officially announce its cancellation.

Another source said that the development and resources from the title have been integrated into the upcoming Final Fantasy XV instead.

Back in May, Final Fantasy Versus XIII designer Tetsuya Nomura asked for patience from fans, and explained the difficulties of bringing a new concept to market.

"We would like to ask for your patience on an official announcement for this title,” said Nomura.

“It always takes time when tackling the challenge of doing something completely new, but we are doing our best to bring information to the fans as quickly as we can. Your patience is greatly appreciated."
