Square plans to continue Final Fantasy XV’s story with sequels

Square Enix’s Tetsuya Nomura has confirmed that the upcoming Final Fantasy XV will be the subject of sequels and/or additional content to continue the game’s story.

“In the trailer, there was a line that read “A World of the Versus Epic,” which suggests that it will be part of an epic. While Final Fantasy XV will have one climax, as a story, we plan to continue it further,” Nomura-san told Siliconera.

The FFXV game director said this will allow his team to develop the latest entry in the RPG series without worrying about whether the story and contents can be squeezed into just one title.

“As for as how it will be released, we’ll announce that later on; however, having you wait a long while for a next title isn’t something we would desire…” he said. “Also, we’ve been exploring online compatibilities ever since the shift towards the next-generation hardware was decided.”

Final Fantasy XV was announced at Sony’s E3 press conference on Tuesday. The game was formally known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII and was planned to ship exclusively for PlayStation 3; however, it will now arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
