Square Enix has ceased development of Final Fantasy Versus 13 more than six years after the project was first announced, a new report suggests.
The PlayStation 3 action RPG was announced in May 2006. Since then, however, we've only snatched glimpses of it, and there's been no official update for some time.
No public statement will be made on the decision, a source told Kotaku. Square Enix is apparently keen to avoid any acknowledgement that could impact the company's stock price.
Resources from the project have now been moved to the next numbered Final Fantasy title, Final Fantasy 15.
Square Enix told Eurogamer it "could not comment on rumours or speculation" when contacted about the report.
Meanwhile, more details on the future of the Final Fantasy 13 project - which already spans a number of games - will be announced in September, Square Enix has announced.
A presentation entitled "Final Fantasy 13 Lightning Saga: New Developments Presentation" will take place on 1st September as part of a 25th Anniversary event for the series.
Square Enix has previously teased more Final Fantasy 13 content - although it's unclear whether this means additional Final Fantasy 13-2 DLC or a fully-fledged Final Fantasy 13-3.
