Lightning Saga. *snort* Really? That's a thing now? I haven't laughed at the use of the word "saga" this much since they decided to use it for the Twilight films.
Go on then, bring it on with the next one, because hey, this is what the franchise has been reduced to. If recycling assets and creating an incoherent mess of a product can still sell like hotcakes, why not do it again? Heck, why not keep doing it, because it's obvious that for some reason, Lightning is the best thing to have come out of Japan since ninjas? Why end there with a third game? Why not go the Kingdom Hearts route? Keep making them! Grab unused assets from other games you produced and turn these assets into useful FFXIII-sequel assets for future games! Go up to FFXIII-13 where Lightning and Caius are the size of gas giants and have to throw fireballs the size of Mars at each other?
It's clear by now that this is the more profitable way, because if it's anything bigger, Square-Enix just can't manage them anymore, which is why they've been harping on about the need to end large-scale internal development and embrace outsourcing more thoroughly. If by some miraculous chance we do reach FFXV before we all die from old age (or before they announce bankruptcy and shut down), how many direct sequels will that game spawn? Will they even manage a tenth of the numbers that FFXIII managed at this rate? Oh, silly me. This is Final Fantasy. Of course it will sell.
And expect Versus information to be pushed back again. We can't have it overshadowing this and FFXIV 2.0, can we?! Back of the queue again you go. "It's time for Versus" my arse.

SE is completely dead to me, it is now in my trash can along Capcom, EA and Activision.
