Square Enix can’t commit to 2011 release for XIII Versus

Are you f*cking with us, Square Enix?

Final Fantasy Versus XIII producer has confessed that he can’t commit to a 2011 release date for the PS3 game, which has been in development for roughly eight thousand years. The game has been in perpetual delay, with only slivers of information being drip-fed to us over the centuries. 

“We have no release date information to update,” says Kitase. “Unfortunately we can’t say anything about that. We can’t commit ourselves to 2011 either.”

This is honestly ridiculous. Square Enix has a bad habit of announcing a ton of titles at once, and I am beginning to think that the company reveals title names before it even has any idea of what the games themselves will be like. 

Seriously, Square Enix, stop trying to make fifty games at once, and maybe you’ll get a few of them finished. Usually I think delays are fine, but not when you’re simply trying to develop too much at once because you have the restraint of a three-year-old.
