The newest edition of Famitsu has come out and it was littered with information about rumors regarding Square Enix and various Japanese developers. There were various things touched upon by Square Enix:

According to Yoshinori Kitase, Final Fantasy X-3 is NOT in development, per early comments (http://home.eyesonff.com/content/2974-final-fantasy-x-3-definitely-maybe.html) following the release of the Final Fantasy X-2.5 novella and -Will- audio drama. The additional stories were not created with the intention of leading into a third title. So no more Yuna for us!

Dissidia: Final Fantasy director Mutsunori Takahashi has also expressed an interest in releasing another Dissidia Title. If you're fans of the Dissidia series then this should be an exciting notion. We may get to see some more of our favorite characters from the earlier games represented in 3D glory again.

Theathrythm: Final Fantasy producer Ichirou Hazama has also shown an interested in another game. He has stated in the past that they resonate with the younger audience of Final Fantasy fans. So once we finally get Curtain Call on our shores we may be able to look forward to another entry.

Final Fantasy XV though? Still no new updates. They merely said that development is going "well". In an earlier report with Nikkei Trendy (http://trendy.nikkeibp.co.jp/article/special/20140328/1056236/?P=1), President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda said that the company felt “very confident” that both Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III will please fans. So that's a plus!

Are you sad about there not being a new entry into the Final Fantasy X universe? Are you looking forward to another Dissidia game or another Theatrhythm game if we ever get Curtain Call? Surprised about the lack of news about XV? :roll2 Share your thoughts!

That's a shame! Would probably have been a good time to announce it with the X/X-2 hype going on around now. Ah well, maybe they can focus developing elsewhere then.

I don't think we need anymore sequels, let's get on with the FF show!

Maybe they should outsource the project to a western developer. But then again, if that were to happen, we might get:

"Press X to control Tidus' laugh!"

"Be sure to select "cover" at waist high walls in battle!"

"Protip: Yuna has higher stats the less clothing she wears."

"When Tidus is feeling thirsty he relaxes on the Besaid shoreline drinking some Mt. Gagazet Dew!"

"Jecht Drinking Game DLC"

"Preorder now to get an authentic Blitz ball!" (actual size of blitz ball is barley bigger than a tennis ball and is a cheap blow up one that jacks the special edition price by 100 dollars).

Please let there be FF VI and FF V characters in that upcoming Dissidia.

The thread title is misleading. He didn't say it isn't happening, he just said it's not in development. People keep forgetting that this is the same man who said there wouldn't be a second XIII sequel, and we got just that. He also denied the rumor that Versus XIII was to be rebranded FFXV, and that happened as well.

You can't really take anything these guys say at face value anymore. I fully believe, 100%, that FFX-3 is happening, no matter what Kitase says, and I can't wait for the butthurt explosion when it's officially announced. :p

I'm sure there's plenty more exciting Final Fantasy XIIITM content, featuring Lightning©, that they want to market first.

Well Famitsu seems to have an in with Square Enix, I'm sure they know more than they are allowed to say. Notice how they didn't even ask about a XIV? XIV: ARR is out X HD is out. Only things in development right now, or should be, are KH 2.5 and KH 3 and XV. Curtain call is coming out soon in japan, nothing left there. Unless they are super focused on those games, which I doubt since if they were we'd have XV already, than they HAVE to be doing something else. Be it X-3 like you're saying DMKA or they are working on XIV, which I still think has something to do with
UVX0OUO9ptU,the tech demo they released back in 2012. That thing had wayyyyy too much art direction and character development for a freaking tech demo. YOU CAN'T FOOL ME SE.

Same here

Unless the game turns out to be terrible, then I'll join them, but X-3 could turn out to be amazing.

It's almost as if they had an FFX game to sell and wanted to generate gaming media hype to draw attention to that fact.

So, after that dumb audio drama broke my heart, they're just not going to have a conclusion for it?

Awful.

That was already said months ago and as it doesn't make any sense for it not to happen this is just to say we don't need to wait for it right now. Really, thank god? Are people happy with Tidus and Yuna breaking up (which is a canonical story part, no matter if there is a sequel or not)? I rather take it like a Final Fantasy X "Chain of Memories" and wait for the sequel.

They seriously split them up? That makes absolutely no sense. Sure, in real life people often end relationships over really dumb things, but considering what they both went through, it makes no sense to have their relationship fall apart. In a fictional story it just don't work like that. Seems like drama for drama's sake if you ask me. If lazy writing like that is what would have been in store for FFX-3, then screw it, it really shouldn't happen.

The sequel can fix this. As it is now ending it is what makes no sense.

It is an official addition to the story, yes. However it could be retconned. Right now it is canonical however.

Good news. They need to finish XV and KHIII before they get to work on anything else major.

It was once. Remember the Guardia Millenial Fair? Most annoying button-mashing minigame ever (seriously, you do realize how fast you need to mash to win that thing?).

I'm not sure it still is. "Minigame" seems to be a bit outside Square's current design philosophy.
