Final Fantasy IX was announced and developed in tandem with Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy XI. This three-pronged marketing effort was intended to provide gamers with the promise of three upcoming games of varied style and gameplay: an intentionally retro RPG in Final Fantasy IX, a smoother evolution in style and design in Final Fantasy X, and an online experience in Final Fantasy XI.
Reading this got me thinking, wouldn't it be interesting/good if Square Enix came forward and said "Hey, we're working on game x, y, z and this is what we plan to do."; general enough to not let the cat out of the bag, but informative enough to A)let us know some info B)give us three different games to look forward to for three different reasons.
I'm kinda over the the obsession of FFXIII. Game was alright, but I don't quite understand the need for endless sequels and DLC. As for FF Versus XIII, while it is in a somewhat different category than FFXIII, it's still having issues of a possible release date, information, and progress.
