future of final fantasy

Destructoid recently received an invitation from Square Enix to attend a pre-E3 event on Tuesday the 11th. The event will last an hour from 9 AM to 10 AM PDT, which will take place after the Nintendo Direct scheduled to air on the same day. At this event, Square Enix will talk about “the future of Final Fantasy.” This will include some Q&A time with Shinji Hashimoto, the senior vice president of Square Enix.

What could Square Enix possibly mean when they say “the future of Final Fantasy?” Will they talk about the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII or Final Fantasy XIV Online: A Realm Reborn? Will they reveal that next-gen Final Fantasy title that they teased during the PS4 announcement back in February? Will they reveal that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is a real thing? Or will they reveal that every future Final Fantasy title will be a mobile game filled to the brim with micro-transations? Nobody knows, but since this event is less than a week away, we won’t have to wait for much longer.
