Square wants the game to surpass Skyrim and FF7.

• 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. He’s 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 Assassin’s Creed.
• The battle system now allows you to target different parts of an enemy’s 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.

Note when it means "all major current gen consoles" it means all HD consoles available.

I liked VI and IX, but not XII. So, I have no idea how I would feel about this.

So, they plan on going back old school then? Open world like FFXII? No Wii U version?

Hopefully if anything from this rumor is true its that Motomu Toriyama isn't heading the game. It should at least have a chance of being better than FFXIII and FFXIV then.

FF12 was the worst battle system.

Whoever made those rumors is either a FFVII fanboy or someone who doesn't know FFVII wasn't the best selling FF after launch. That title goes to FFXIII.

Also, current gen platforms? Hahahaha. Someone should tell the guy who made those rumors not to be so obvious.
