We will continue to neither confirm nor deny FFXIIIVerus to continue to mock you for being foolish enough to think it was ever going to happen in the bloody first place. Even if we do bother making it, it will be so different from the original product, and we won't even try to hide this fact.
The truth is, we know you want it so bad that you don't care if it's a Fighting game, with 20 characters, only 4 of which won't be simple palate swaps, and over $500 worth of on disc DLC, which I'm sure you'll gladly mortgage your house for, because despite what you say, you've bought all our other games with the words Final Fantasy slapped on them, and have therefore made the only vote that truly matters to us, the one that you make with your wallet!
Thank you for your blind fanboy patronage. You my friend are part of lifeblood of the games we personally develop! Remember, logic isn't very friendly, so keep ignoring it, and keepon voting with your wallet!
Your wallet's biggest fan, Square-Enix
