Square Enix Did Not Promise Final Fantasy XIII in 2008
Erroneous reports have been spread all over the Internet claiming that a Japanese magazine was reporting that Square Enix had promised Final Fantasy XIII would be released in 2008. This is, in fact, not correct, and Square Enix promised no such thing – they know better than to make a promise for something that has virtually no chance of happening.
The following was posted on Square Enix’s official website:
Although information regarding the release date of FINAL FANTASY XIII has been reported by certain videogame websites, Square Enix itself has yet to make an official statement on this topic. Any reports of a confirmed release date are erroneous and should be disregarded.
Square Enix will make an official announcement in the future concerning the release date when it has been determined.
Disappointing for FF fans? Sure. But they’ll be happy when they’re literally swimming in FFXIII games.
