Square Enix will be celebrating the Final Fantasy franchise’s silver anniversary during a special Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary event in Japan next month. In addition to the typical celebration stuff, the publisher plans to reveal new details about the future of the Final Fantasy XIII series.
Scheduled for September 1 at 11:30 AM (Japan Standard Time), the announcement will come as part of a panel titled “Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation” and will likely feature a Final Fantasy XIII-3 announcement.
A third Final Fantasy XIII game is the most likely outcome for this presentation as Square Enix previously announced the end of Final Fantasy XIII-2 downloadable content with the “Requiem of the Goddess” pack. Adding more fuel to the FFXIII-3 fire is the suspected cancellation of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Final Fantasy XIII-3 is basically the only FFX13-related announcement Square Enix could be making.
