Final Fantasy 15 Sequel Not Expected

Published

on

If you’re one of the many gamers holding out hope that there will be a full sequel to the ever-growing ‘Final Fantasy 15’, you may be taking an ‘L’.

In an interview with Polygon, director Hajime Tabata said that

Square Enix wants to keep exploring Final Fantasy 15 in smaller ways.

“If you do that full sequel model of expanding on an IP or a series, it’s good in certain ways,” said Tabata during the interview.

“The negative of that is there’s a very large open period where you’re not releasing anything. In that period, you get people to move away, and their attachment to the franchise dissipates a little bit.”

Instead, the Final Fantasy 15 team wants to work on shorter, story-based installments as opposed to a massive sequel.

“What we’re trying to do with that is to depict that missing 10 years of history right at the end of the story,” Tabata said.

Players create their own member of the Kingsglaive, the army that protected and fought for the kingdom of Eos, during the Comrades campaign.

“If we had tried to do that as a traditional, full-scale sequel, that would have been very difficult,” the director said, “but it works really well in [keeping] that continued relationship with fans.”

Final Fantasy 15 has added episodes based on other characters who didn’t get to play a lead role in the game with “Episode Ignia”, the 3rd episode, due out this December.

More episodic installments has not been ruled out either.

The upcoming “Comrades” expansion will add an online multiplayer mode to the role-playing game.

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer Aims To Have Xbox Game Pass On All Devices

Published

Microsoft has some lofty goals for Xbox Game Pass, and Phil Spencer is aiming for the moon when it comes to delivering Xbox Game Pass to more people.

Spencer said that Microsoft wants to bring Xbox Game Pass to “every device”, while speaking during the San Francisco’s Barclays conference last week.

Certainly, Microsoft’s Project xCloud will lay the foundation for doing just that, as it will go to public testing in 2019 and would be the logical bridge to Xbox Game Pass on mobile.

“We need to make sure that we’re world-class at free-to-play content, but we also look at subscription as a much lower barrier way for a customer to build a library of content,” Spencer elaborated (h/t VG247). “So we built Xbox Game Pass. It started on console, it will come to PC, and eventually it will come to every device.

“We use the flywheel that we have with customers on an Xbox to start the growth in Xbox Game Pass. But as somebody sitting back and taking a longer-term view of where our business is going, you should look at that as a business model that we think scales to billions of people not hundreds of millions of people like retail does.”
