Kitase: Final Fantasy XIII-2 depends on Western sales

Of the interesting notes in this interview at schrijversblok.nl, perhaps the most eye-catching is that when Final Fantasy XIII designer Yoshinori Kitase experesses his interest in a Final Fantasy XIII-2. At the interviewer’s first mention of it, there was some initial laughter and the line “That depends on how well the game sells in the West!” But the director went on to say, “In the past three years we worked both on the world and on the various systems. Creating these systems isn’t very glamourous and can frankly be a bit boring. If we could do a XIII-2, we could direct all our attention to the story and refine what we have already built.”

We’ll see if that project actually gets off the ground.  The game has been selling well all over the world, and stranger things have certainly happened.  Time will tell.
