Job Posting Adds More Fuel to Final Fantasy Versus XIII Exclusivity Rumors


The Final Fantasy series’ sole remaining PS3 exclusive title may not be exclusive for much longer.

Back in May, we first heard rumors that Square-Enix was considering making Final Fantasy Versus XIII a multiplatform title, instead of just releasing it on the PlayStation 3 as originally planned. The rumor came from what was an admittedly vague statement, though, and it’s easy to just brush off a single instance like that as mere coincidence.

Two instances, though? That’s slightly harder to dismiss. Earlier today, Square-Enix posted a job listing for a Final Fantasy Versus XIII “Battle Planner.” The requirements for the job include experience working on a 3D action game, experience in both level and battle design, and “development experience on a PS3, or Xbox 360 package title.”

That specific reference to an “Xbox 360 package title,” naturally, has some Final Fantasy fans – and PS3 fanboys – up in a tizzy. Given that many JRPG fans are said to have initially bought PS3s specifically for FF13 and FFv13, it is perhaps understandable – but some of them take it a bit too far.

This is, of course, just a silly little coincidence, and it’s entirely possible that the request for Xbox 360 development experience has nothing to do with Versus XIII, but rather some other game that Square-Enix could develop in the future.

It is enough to make you think, though. Isn’t it?
