Reports of a sequel to Square Enix's MMORPG version of its Final Fantasy series
With that long-rumoured console version of Blizzard's World of Warcraft seemingly nothing more than a mere fabrication based on wishful thinking, it's pretty much been left up to Square Enix's Final Fantasy XI to cater to the console-owning MMORPG crowd. Fans should be thrilled to hear then that the company may well be thick in the throws of development on a next-gen sequel.
According to a news item on Nikkei.net, as reported by Gamespot.com, "Square Enix will develop a sequel to Final Fantasy XI [...] or three platforms: Sony Computer Entertainment's next-generation PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and the Windows Vista PC operating system."
:While the original game eventually landed on PC, Xbox 360 and PS2 (just not in Europe in the latter's case), the follow-up appears to be truly next-gen, with Square Enix making the switch to Sony's brand new console. Of course, with no official word from the company at the moment, this one's firmly in the realm of 'rumour'. But, if we hear otherwise, we'll let you know.
