So this is interesting. While it appears that Square-Enix has largely backed off from pre-launch attempts at making Final Fantasy XV into an ongoing perpetual franchise, it looks like the game is getting a mobile spinoff from Korean studio JSC and Chinese studio GAEA. More relevant for our particular genre, the title is supposed to have large-scale multiplayer features, with official press releases generally referring to it as an MMORPG. The actual features themselves have yet to be revealed.
What is definitely known is that the game is running on Unreal 4 and will be set to run concurrently with the events of the main game, possibly occupying a parallel world and incorporating more elements of the world’s story. That means new original content, including continents in the sky, with an initial release planned for mainland China and further releases in other territories. Very little is known about the title at this time, but if you’re really eager to head back to the game world, it looks like you’ll get your chance.
Square Enix is creating a new Final Fantasy XV mobile game.
It is a collaborative project that will be developed by Korean devs JSC and Chinese devs GAEA. Will be published by Oriental Pearl in China, a global release is also planned.
