According to Tetsuya Nomura the chances of there being a new Final Fantasy X sequel is ‘not zero’, although it won’t happen anytime soon.
There are always multiple Final Fantasy games in development but there does seem to be more than usual at the moment, given Final Fantasy 7 Remake is still ongoing, Final Fantasy 16 has already been announced, and Final Fantasy 14 is more popular than ever.
It used to be that each numbered Final Fantasy game was a single entity, unrelated to any other and with no sequels of its own. However, that began to change with 2001’s Final Fantasy 10, which received the series’ first ever mainline sequel, in 2003’s Final Fantasy 10-2 (or Final Fantasy X-2, if that looks slightly less odd).
Since then, we’ve had three Final Fantasy 13s, Final Fantasy 4: The After Years, and multiple Final Fantasy 7 projects, but series veteran Tetsuya Nomura has, for the first time, hinted that there might be a Final Fantasy X-3.
In an interview with Famitsu, as translated by trusted leaker Nibel, Nomura mentions that writer Kazushige Nojima, who worked on both the previous games, has a ‘rough outline’ of what Final Fantasy X-3 ‘could look like’.
Although that seems pretty vague Nomura then adds that the chances of the belated sequel happening are ‘not zero’, even though Nojima’s current focus is Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Up till now there’s never been any serious talk of a new sequel, with X-2 seeming to wrap things up fairly neatly – but that’s never stopped any sequel before, Final Fantasy or otherwise.
Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster, which first came out in 2015, is the last time the games were in the limelight but if Nomura says that a new entry is being considered he presumably knows what he’s talking about.
