Final Fantasy Versus XIII appears to be cancelled

Multiple Square Enix sources are telling Kotaku that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is no more. According to the report, this decision was made only a few weeks ago and not lightly. Square Enix is going to let the memory of the game fade away instead of officially announcing its cancelation for fear of stock price reactions.

Kotaku’s sources also claim that a lot of the team and resources have already been folded into the next major installment of the Final Fantasy franchise.

For those of us following the history of Versus XIII this can’t come as a surprise. The game was announced May 2006 and in the 6 years since almost no gameplay has ever been seen publicly.
