Fans of Square Enix’s two biggest franchises may be in for a disappointing E3.
It’s no question that Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts have easily become the biggest Square Enix franchises. So, Fans just kind of naturally expected to hear some more news about Final Fantasy XV and Kindgom Hearts 3 at this year’s upcoming E3. Unfortunately, Square has confirmed that this is not the case, as while it is hard at work on both titles, it isn’t ready to show anything new to the public.
Square’s Shinji Hashimoto told Destructoid, “We are are working diligently on KH3, but I think releasing new information will still take some time. We included a small part regarding the story of KH3 In the new trailer KH 2.5 prepared for E3 2014, so please check that out.”
As for FFXV Hashimoto said “First I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV.”
FFXV was originally announced back in 2006, under the title Final Fantasy XIII: Versus, and has been under heavy development since. Kingdom Hearts III was only announced at last year’s E3, but Square says it has been working on it for quite some time.
Last we heard about these games, Square was squashing rumors that they would release in 2014.
Don’t get your hopes up, folks!
