Square Enix has denied that it is developing a sequel to Final Fantasy XI for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows Vista PCs.

That's after a Nikkei.net report earlier this week said it was doing just that - something picked up on by most of the Western internet in the interim.

"The Company did not make such an announcement and has not made any decisions resembling those detailed in the media report," Square Enix said in a statement issued today in Japan.

"As the Company announced in May 2005, it is currently developing an online title for next-generation platforms including game consoles and PCs; however, this title is being developed as a completely new MMORPG. We will disclose further details of this title, including platform compatibility, immediately after any relevant decisions are made."

"In addition, the Company continuously plans to release expansion packs for Final Fantasy XI, available on PlayStation 2, Xbox 360 and Windows, as well as perform version updates."

So there you go then. It's not ruling out the possibility of another Final Fantasy MMORPG, but it hasn't decided to do one yet.
