Do FF sequels really take away from the focus of new things? If I remember Square has several business divisions BD1 making the 7 Remake and BD2 was making FFXV, and BD5 working on XIV expansions, and possibly working on XVI. The only thing an FF sequels can do is well, just be FF sequels those making let's say XV sequels aren't the same development team as those would be making XVI. The XIII sequels me personally I hated them because they were just not very good, and halted the development of a game I actually wanted and still want to this day though that was more of shitty engine issues then them simply existing. I'd rather they wait on XVI, personally myself I don't really care about the next mainline installment as they have absolutely soured me after XV, but for the sake of us not having a repeat of Versus XIII, XVI should be worked on when they know what they are doing and not trying to cram in so many ideas to appease as many people as possible, and when they can commit to a system this time.
