I'm starting to believe Versus really IS FF XV now.

Whether or not it's now on PS4, changing it to XV must be the reason why SE refuses to ever talk about it. Makes sense right? They give regular updates on LR, XIV, and their other games but NEVER Versus, not for 2 whole years.

Something is up. There must be a reason why they keep telling us to be patient, that they have no info at this time, all that crap. Because if the new title is FF XV, they can't comment on "Versus" because Versus, as a title, doesn't exist anymore. And they have to make an official announcement.

I dunno. I don't want to believe it, but this is one logical explanation for dead silence. I just wanna know the TRUTH.

EDIT: Wait. Just thought of something. Didn't SE refresh their trademark on Versus some time ago? When was that? And does anyone know if FF XV has been trademarked by them? 'Cause if not, maybe I'm wrong...

Yes, Square Enix refiled the Versus XIII trademark on August 31, 2011. Here is the link:

Also, Gematsu reported on July 19, 2012 that Square Enix had filed a trademark for Final Fantasy XV, but the logo turned out to be for XIV instead. There's also a juicy rumor in this article.

If Hiroyuki Ito is indeed directing FFXV (as the rumor says), then perhaps Versus XIII won't be XV after all. Or, it could be XV, and Ito's project turns into XVI. Or, the information could be horribly outdated at this point.

Yup, I agree. Especially since Nomura was all "I will show you the future of Final Fantasy!" last year at the 25th anniversary event. It'll still be on the PS3, in my opinion. If it was for PS4, they could've easily shown it at the PS4 conference instead of Agni's tech demo again.

-edit, it'll basically be the FFIX/FFXII of this gen.

When I post in a fresh topic, I'm referring to its title. ;)

I understood what you meant, Aryllies, but I wanted to clarify. Thanks.

i'd completely forgotten about that rumor.
