    Rumor: Final Fantasy XV to be Open World

    GamesMaster UK has another tip from their Square Enix source, this time detailing some of the things gamers can expect from Final Fantasy XV. Although GamesMaster UK was initially wrong about the unveiling of FFXV at E3, they are adamant about the validity of their source.

    Here's what the source had to say:

    - Including the concept planning and pre-production phase, the game has already been in development for over 4 years.

    - It entered full production in January 2010, a month after FFXIII was released in Japan. Since then it has had a development team of just over 200 people.

    - The director is the same person who directed FFVI, FFIX and FFXII, Hiroyuki Ito.

    - The co-director led a small part of the development team to make Tactics Ogre for the PSP in parallel with FFXV. Heís currently multi-tasking as lead UI designer of FFXIV 2.0 and co-director of FFXV.

    - The game design and battle system will be a major evolution of FFXII.

    - The game will be open world and have sprawling, crowd-filled cities on par with Assassinís Creed.

    - The battle system now allows you to target different parts of an enemyís body like in Vagrant Story.

    - Yoichi Wada (president of Square Enix) wants the game to have a world scale and volume of content that surpasses The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. He also wants the game to surpass FFVII in worldwide sales and critical reception.

    - Will release on all major current gen platforms.

    Open world Final Fantasy. It's like Square Enix has been reading my diary. Hopefully these rumors will end up being true, but I guess only time will tell

    I trust SE as far as I can throw them. Sounds pretty cool if it turns out to be true.

    Dammit it square!
    Why can't you finish games first and then move to the next ones?!

    Is that so hard?

    Am I the only one who is worried about this? Because it sounds awfully like they are being influenced more and more by western games.

    There is a difference between having a world map and games like Skyrim.

    Open world usually means crap load of bugs and a significantly lessens the focus on story.

    Why would you need to choose turn-based gameplay mechanics over an open world environment? I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous. It's like saying, "I like my Gran Turismo titles with cars, not race tracks."

    Honestly, you guys need to reread the article. I've even pointed out three things in my previous post for why I - and maybe others - should get excited for Final Fantasy XV, if this rumor ends up being true.

    Or perhaps people just saw Final Fantasy XII mentioned and assumed it would be a terrible entry in the series.

    FFXII was one of the worse games, but still i dont want my final fantasys open world because you lose so much when a game is open world.

    Either way i would much rather a game like skyrim than another FF XIII effort where you basically follow a path. Just my opinion.

    IF they can pull it of with the FF magic, we could be looking at the best Final Fantasy ever. FFXII almost made it, but story dropped the ball hard in the last part.

    Hmm, if it's like XII, that's not too bad for me. I thought XII was a pretty solid entry, just some choices by design I felt were done poorly. BTW, not only is it a rumor, but being open world does not immediately mean it will play anything like Skyrim. There are absolutely no claims to back that.
