Square announces FFXIII release in 2008 not official

Square sent out some emails earlier today informing editors and writers that there is, in fact, no official stance from Square-Enix on the release date of FFXIII. The story’s been spreading ever since Joystiq picked up on some Famitsu translations, but it appears it was all taken incorrectly (or translated wrong, who knows).

According to an announcement Square posted on their website,

"Although information regarding the release date of FINAL FANTASY XIII has been reported by certain videogame websites, Square Enix itself has yet to make an official statement on this topic. Any reports of a confirmed release date are erroneous and should be disregarded.

Square Enix will make an official announcement in the future concerning the release date when it has been determined."

They do remain, however, optimistic that we’ll see a playable demo of the new battle system sooner rather than later. So hopefully that’s enough to quell the Final Fantasy fanboys upset at Square’s stance.
