I find it interesting that he publicly debunked the 'FF Versus XIII quietly cancelled' rumor but never debunked the 'FFXV secretly in development for current gen by Hiroyuki Ito' rumor. That rumor blew up on 2ch and other Japanese websites and Wada never came out and commentated on it.

Interesting.

IMO, there must have been parts of the FFXV rumor that were true. As a result, Yoichi Wada decided to ignore it rather than publicly comment on it. The 'FF Versus XIII quietly cancelled' was 100% false so he was able to debunk it outright.

So, you think Wada is letting this rumour simmer so as to increase hype? Sounds plausible.

Is it possible that you were planning this the whole time?

That, or parts of it were so true that if he publicly came out and debunked it then the developers of FFXV would have to change their game to not make it like the rumor. LOL!

Also, the rumor stated that the game has been in development for 4 years and Hiroyuki Ito is directing it. If that is true then there's no way Wada can debunk it as when the game eventually gets announced and Ito is revealed as the director, people will remember that Wada said it wasn't true when it actually was. His image in the public eye would be damaged.

So, if this is right, we will have a promising world and battle system with a boring story?

Ito wasn't the writer of FFXII.
