Final Fantasy games: Future in the balance after XIII?

We have an interesting article for Final Fantasy fans to check out now, as both Motomu Toriyama and Yoshinori Kitase have admitted that they were left slightly confused with president Yoichi Wada’s comments, when referring to the future of the Final Fantasy franchise.

As reported from Eurogamer, Wada recently stated that it ‘remains to be seen’ if the team are going to continue to internally create this kind of game again – obviously talking about the future after Final Fantasy XIII. He added that he thinks that the team who worked on FFXIII should move onto something else, as we move into the ‘next generation’ of gaming.

However, Toriyama and Kitase, the director and producer respectively stated that they ‘didn’t know what he meant by that’. Pretty strange, don’t you think guys?

They did add though, that they thought Wada could of been referring to the sheer scale of time and numbers of staff spent on Final Fantasy XIII, and that he simply wanted to become more ‘efficient’ for the next game.

We want your thoughts on this. Full article through the link.

I'm actually surprised that 13 was a hit for square-enix. I hope they ditch the formula they had as even if you like the game, you can't deny that fans were divided. I personally hated 13, the only character who didn't irk me was Lightning, seeing as how she seems to be the focal point for the new game, maybe they can improve on the formula, but my expectations are rather low. The team that did 13 produced one of the most questionable games in the series history, so I hope it was a learning experience for them.
