Final Fantasy XIII delayed until the World Cup?

39 second read

Apparently the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XIII is not going to make it onto the shelves this year… Or next year. Actually we are only going to see it in mid 2010… Around about the same time that the FIFA world cup kicks off.

Now honestly I don’t see the thrill of this game but millions of people do so I do in fact feel sorry for them.

In fact this game is starting to sound a little like Duke Nukem Forever… vapourware…

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

    I have played one of these on the PS1 and it was the most boring game ever. I really can’t see what all the hype is about.

    I have played FFX almost to completion and I have FFX-2 sitting on the shelf right next to it and I still want to play FFXII, so at least this news gives me some time before I actually have to buy a PS3 and time to finish the others.

    I am currently playing Eternal Sonata. FFX is like 10x better.
    Ok that sounded a bit like a fanboy but it’s true. Eternal Sonata I like a hollow vessel of an jrpg.

    Maybe it will launch the same time as Alan Wake then?

    Well, we’ve actually seen in game footage of Alan Wake. FFXIII is still a bit of a Sasquatch.

    “Well, we’ve actually seen in game footage of Alan Wake. ”

    We actually haven’t. We’ve seen some tech demos running on high-end PCs and giving an idea of what the game world and engine looks like, but no actual gameplay footage on the 360.

    These games are huge and ambitious, and a lot of 360 games have also been in the oven for a long time. Whether it’s Alan Wake, Too Human or Final Fantasy XIII, I’d rather that the time is taken to create something people will still be talking a out for all the right reasons in 10 years time.

    Anyway, when the dates are announced, they’ll be announced. Until then, speculating about whether they’ll be out in 2009 or 2015 is pointless. Developers should really do themselves and everyone else a favour and only announced games when they look ready to go in a year’s time.
