Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV aren't likely to arrive at the same time, since both games are by the same director.
That's according to Kingdom Hearts series producer Shinji Hashimoto, who told IGN that having Tetsuya Nomura as director for both projects would obviously have an impact.
Both have Tetsuya Nomura as their director, so we can’t create these two big games at the same time.
"It’s a difficult job, as we want each game to be perfect in terms of quality."
Quite how far along development is for Kingdom Hearts III isn't clear. When asked why Square Enix decided to announce the game this year if significant progress hasn't perhaps been made, Hashimoto explained that the company thought it was about time it addressed speculation about the long-awaited conclusion to the trilogy. Unfortunately, this leaves us none-the-wiser about how far along development for the game actually is, or when we may see it.
"A lot of people have wondered for the last couple of years if Square Enix has actually been working on Kingdom Hearts III; that’s why we announced it at E3 this year," he said. "But please, we need you all to understand that there’s a lot to do."
Check back to IGN later this week for the full interview with Shinji Hashimoto where we talk more about Kingdom Hearts III, as well as the future of the series.
