Is Square Enix having trouble developing Final Fantasy XV?

Is Square Enix having trouble developing Final Fantasy XV?

| January 13, 2014

Fans of the series may remember a special moment at E3 2006 when Square Enix used a CGI clip to reveal Final Fantasy XIII Versus. The company later announced that the Versus name had been dropped and the game will officially be Final Fantasy XV. The installment comes from the creators of Kingdom Hearts and looks to be one incredible action packed RPG. Just look at the trailer from last year’s E3!

So the question you are undoubtedly asking yourself is, “What’s the holdup?” The game was announced over SEVEN years ago and still no sign of release. Troubling? Maybe, maybe not. The game looks like a massive undertaking and Square Enix wants to put out a masterpiece. I can appreciate that.

However, through the project manager’s Linkedin account it can be seen that they are outsourcing focused management for Final Fantasy XV and other 1st Production titles. This alone may not mean anything, but coupled with the amount of time FFXV is taking to develop might indicated need for concern.


Seems like things may not be all clear on the FFXV front. What do you guys think?

  • Pedro Victor

    Well, it WAS Versus XIII… so I’d say hell yes they’re having problems developing it.

  • Jan Kathleen Reyes Villaroman

    seriously… can;t they just re-release FFVII with better graphics?

  • Mimir

    You know that the quote after mobile versions is from a fake news site, right?

    @gibbogame I bought a PS3 when Versus was announced… It never came out. :[

  • Lam Wei Lun

    They are turning a sorta- turned based game into full fledged combat game like Kingdom Hearts. Of course there would be problems like game balancing and stuffs

    @gibbogame The article is quoting the parody news site @P4RGaming
