As promised, we’ve obtained a statement from Square-Enix concerning FFCC: The Crystal Bearers. Yesterday, we reported an EGM rumor that stated that FFCC: The Crystal Bearers was most likely cancelled. Today, Square-Enix steps in to comment on the situation. This statement is direct from Square-Enix, and was provided to GoNintendo by Sonia Im, Senior Public Relations Manager of Square Enix, Inc..
“While much of EGM’s ‘Rumor Mill’ contents end up being accurate, in this case the report is incorrect.
We have never announced that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has been cancelled and have every intention of releasing it. There may be some concerns as a firm ship date has not been set but rest assured there will be an announcement once we finalize the date internally.
Although there are many Square Enix related rumors out there that we do not comment on, due to the feedback from the readers, we felt it was necessary to provide a statement to alleviate the worries of those who are looking forward to the game. The fan base that the Final Fantasy series has is appreciated by everyone at Square Enix (not only the developers) so we hope this statement will prevent any further spreading of the rumor.
We apologize for any unnecessary distress this rumor may have caused and hope the fans of the series can again look forward to the upcoming release of Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers.” - Square-Enix statement
A special thanks to all those involved at Square-Enix with the issuing of this statement.
