The lights are on
Hidden away in an email about the company’s plans for E3 reveals, Square Enix claims that it will "unveil the first look at the next generation of Final Fantasy," along with already-revealed plans to offer new details on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
That statement implies we’ll finally find out what Square Enix has been doing with its next-gen Luminous Studio, which was revealed at last year’s E3. Some have speculated that the tech demo entitled Agni’s Philosophy from that presentation might actually be an early glimpse of the story and artistic direction for Final Fantasy XV, though it's an assertion that Square Enix has not supported. We’ve included the full movie below.
In addition to its Final Fantasy lineup, Square Enix also plans to show Murdered: Soul Suspect, Thief, and the newly announced mobile installment in the Deus Ex series entitled Deus Ex: The Fall.
No matter what the next-gen Final Fantasy announcement is, and if Square Enix has any other surprises up its sleeve, we’ll have full details when Square Enix pulls back the curtain next week at the big show.
