The lights are on
Update: At a Q&A session this morning, Final Fantasy brand director Shinji Hashimoto clarified that the name change for Final Fantasy Versus XIII also comes with another alteration: It is a next-gen exclusive. The title, which was previously only announced for PS3, is now dropping off that system and finding a home on PS4 and Xbox One.
Square Enix's long silence regarding the status of Final Fantasy Versus XIII just started making a little more sense. The title has officially changed to Final Fantasy XV.
Final Fantasy Versus XIII's long development has left many fans of the series with questions...and in a video, director Tetsuya Nomura promised more info in the coming days. But for now, the knowledge that the project is alive and well is great news.

im really not tha interested in this =/ i miss the old final fantasy were they were rich in magic, and classes, and vibrant fantasy worlds
This news has made this the best E3 I have seen in years!!
Well is it going to be on the Next gen consoles or current gen consoles? If it is next gen, then the graphics are going to be outdated, not unless it is a launch title.
Easily my favorite announcement of the day!
I was beginning to wonder about that. I had done some research for a blog recently and I thought that this might happen, I mean it wouldn't make much sense to call it "Versus XIII" now, IMO. To be honest, for a long time before XIII came out I thought that THIS was XIII, so I'm glad that they cleared THAT up.
=) sonys welcoming me back with open arms...im so effing happy
When will they announce FFXV Versus?
I was 85% confident this was the year for Versus XIII, but I was still freaking out when this was announced. Holy hell I am excited for this. It totally lives up to my hopes and dreams. The Kingdom Hearts announcement afterwards I was 5% hopeful for. I threw on my Kingdom Hearts shirt today, but still I wasn't really even remotely expecting that. I'm pleased with Square Enix.
Awesome, people got what they wanted. Now give us TR 2!! :P
Awesome! I guess they lied about this game being done THEN working on KH3...or maybe this game is nearing completion finally?
Either way, I'm happy that this won't be a spinoff, and an actualy numbered one. Let's hope it's good.
And this is what we have been clamoring for, SE. Finally, you listen to your fanbase.
They had almost ten years to have these *** games out this gen. But we get 13 and sequels. I'm tired of square.
Good news for FF fans.
The combat system looked like it could be interesting.
My hopes have came true.
Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!! This, along with KH3 were the best parts of the night for me (along with hardware unveiling and the awesome price). Cannot wait to get this, and many other games in the coming year or two (hopefully)!!!!!!!!
I'm actually looking forward to getting a ps4 now. I think the problem with the ps3 is that it held back Versus with many technical issues, but with the ps4 it made things much easier for developers to create such a beatuiful game without removing the great visuals and cinematics.
