One thing at a time. That’s the way Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata sees it, and a good thing too. Final Fantasy XV has been in production for over a decade, and suffice it to say, Square Enix has invested a lot of money into the project. So before they even consider investing more, it might be wise to see how the world receives this game.
In an interview with Gamespot, Tabata confirms that neither he nor the company have any plans to give Noctis a trilogy in the same way Square Enix did with Lightning and Final Fantasy XIII. He said:
“To answer the question of whether we have any intention of making further games with Noctis in them after or continuing the story after Final Fantasy XV is out, I can tell you we don’t currently have any plans for that.There may be a call for it business-wise, but personally, from our point of view, the way we see it is there are people that have been waiting for this game for a very long time now, and we want them to keep enjoying it for as long as possible.”
“In terms of what we want to do with the technology, we want to use that technological foundation that we’ve built up with Final Fantasy XV and move on to do something completely new using that knowhow and that base. We’re going to look into new directions with it.”
