The only thing SE cares about is making money , they don't care about the fans or there would've been a FFVII remake by now. VersusXIII was in development hell costing them too much money on the other hand XIII-2 was making the investors happy. Milk the cow until it's dry and they'll be ready for XV
I wouldn't really describe it as dark so much as....grounded, maybe truthful. It looked like it was going to do for FF what Batman Begins did for the Batman Movie franchise. The gameplay that they showed seemed to just push what I was expecting of it since the first trailer.
