    I said I've left this forum due to becoming tired of the FFXV fanboys that have overrun the place. That's still true, as I'm only briefly returning to post this thread. I'm also aware a lot of shit has happened since I left with innocent people being accused of being my alts, just because they bring up Ito possibly making FFXVI. Accusations like that are nothing new to me because they happened often when I frequented GameFAQs. All I can do is apologise to the individuals that were treated unfairly because they were seen my alts. Anyway, as I've said, I'm only here on a drive by drop off with this thread. It contains my latest update on Ito directing FFXVI speculation.

    If you have no interest in this update or my views in general, please exit the thread now rather than replying with irrelevant BS and derailing it. Thank you in advance.


    Moving on.

    As with Ver 1.0 of this thread, my target audience is the FF fan who is unenthusiastic about FFXV and hoping that Hiroyuki Ito (FFVI, FFIX, FFXII Director) will direct FFXVI for release this gen (PS4/Xbox One/PC). This thread aims to show that, rather than ito directing FFXVI being blind hope fueled by wishing thinking, there's actually corroborated evidence out there that supports the belief and makes it not at all far fetched. That being said, please bare in mind this is not 100% confirmation that Hiroyuki Ito is secretly making FFXVI. We'll only know that for sure when Square Enix officially come out and announce the game.

    For those who don't know Hiroyuki Ito and his past contributions to the FF series, the FF Wiki has a great article on him: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Hiroyuki_Ito

    With all that said, the corroborated points of evidence are provided below in chronological order. I've added various new points throughout the article, so even if you have read Ver 1.0, it's still worth reading the whole thing again to find the new new points scattered throughout the article.

    --------------------------------------------------

    October 2010

    1. Hiroshi Minagawa (FFXII Director, FFXIV ARR UI Director) was interviewed by Eurogamer.net about Tactics Ogre PSP. He said that he chose to make the PSP game, as he'd just finished making FFXII, so wanted to make something smaller scale. For his next project, he'd like to direct another AAA game for home consoles. Considering he directed FFXII with Hiroyuki Ito, his next AAA game would likely have them again co-directing.

    2. Yoshinori Kitase (FFX, FFXIII Producer) said we may get FFXV and FFXVI in the near future. This was said before FFXIII-2 was even released, meaning before LR FFXIII had started development. Therefore, FFXVI was already being made by another team before Kitase/Toriyama had even finished the Lightning Saga.

    3. Hironobu Sakaguchi (Creator of FF) told me face-to-face while he was in London at BAFTA to promote The Last Story, he believes Hiroyuki Ito can make FF a leading and respected RPG series again.

    Source: This information was said to me in person.

    March 2012

    4. Shinichi Tatsuke (Producer within Square Enix Business Division 9), said that Hiroyuki Ito only provided the original concept for the iOS/Android game Guardian Cross, meaning Ito was not a member of the actual development team. If Ito wasn't part of the development team, what game has he been working on hands-on for all these years? After all, his last hands-on project was released back in 2007.

    5. Yoichi Wada (President of Square Enix) never debunked the rumor that Hiroyuki Ito was secretly directing FFXV and it would evolve off FFXII and have an Open World that would surpass Skyrim in both world scale and volume of content. Even though the rumor blew up on 2ch and various Japanese gaming blogs, Wada never debunked it. However, two days later, he used Twitter to publicly debunk the rumor that FF VersusXIII had been cancelled, which was a rumor that had shown up on 2ch earlier that same day; he debunked the rumor within a few hours of it appearing online. Why didn't he also debunk the rumor about Ito? There must have been some truth to it.

    Source: Two sources.

    August 2012

    6. Naoki Yoshida (FFXIV Producer/Director) said that Hiroyuki Ito was not working on FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. However, he wouldn't disclose what game Ito was working on. The fact that disclosing information about what Ito is under NDA must indicate he is working on a very important game for the company.

    Source: https://twitter.com/statuses/238359219076734977

    7. Naoki Yoshida said that FFXIV ARR is the starting point of regaining people's trust in the FF franchise. He added it will make people excited to see what will be in store for them in FFXV and FFXVI. The fact he actually said "FFXV or FFXVI" must mean that both FFXV and FFXVI are currently in development and will release not that far apart from each other.

    October 2012

    9. Hiroyuki Ito said that current-gen hardware (PS3/Xbox 360) was too weak to handle his gameplay ideas. The reason was due to him being held back by insufficient RAM and CPU power. However, he added that hardware was getting closer to where he can do exactly what he wants to do. Considering that Square Enix already had PS4 and Xbox One development kits at the time of this interview, but both console weren't yet publicly announced by Sony and Microsoft, Ito was likely alluding to forthcoming next-gen console hardware.

    February 2013

    10. Naoki Yoshida said that back in December 2010, when he became Producer/Director of FFXV 1.0, many other staff were brought in from other projects. He mentioned Hiroshi Minagawa (FFXII, Tactics Ogre PSP Director) as an example of somebody who was brought over to FFXIV ARR and multitasking it with another big project. That being the case, Minagawa was not working on LR FFXIII or FFXV before he joined FFXIV ARR, so what other big project is he multitasking with FFXIV ARR? Bare in mind that Minagawa directed FFXII alongside Hiroyuki Ito. Also, if you revisit point 1 in this thread, you'll see Minagawa was already planning to direct a AAA game before he joined FFXIV ARR.

    11. I asked Toshiyuki Itahana (FFIX, FFCC, FF Mobius Character Designer) via Twitter if Hiroyuki Ito will direct another mainline FF, as FFIX and FFXII are my favorites in the series. He replied saying that he also respects Ito as an amazing game creator, and that I should please look forward to Ito's next game. Basically, Itahana was indirectly saying that Ito's got another mainline FF in the pipeline and I should look forward to when it's announced.

    Source: https://twitter.com/itabee/status/331777078380883969

    12. Nobuo Uematsu (Composer of FF series) told me face-to-face while he was in London for the Final Symphony concert by the London Symphony Orchestra, he can guarantee that Hiroyuki Ito will direct another FF game. When I probed further and asked if Ito will direct either FFXV or FFXVI, he laughed and replied that his answer would get him in trouble with Square Enix.

    13. FFXV was announced at E3 2013. Seeing as the game was originally announced as FF VersusXIII at E3 2006, which was 7 years ago, the game that was originally supposed to be FFXV must have been renamed FFXVI and pushed back in order to be given more development time.

    14. Shinji Hashimoto (FF Brand Director) said during a Q&A after Square Enix's E3 2013 press conference, FFXV being an Action RPG will not alter the direction of the FF series. FFXV is a standalone title, with a real-time battle system being ideal for what it wants to achieve. He added that the next mainline Final Fantasy (FFXVI) could return to using something similar to the Active Time Battle (ATB) system.

    15. Shinji Hashimoto said that Hiroyuki ito has been planning and proposing ideas for a new project. He added that Ito is putting a lot of depth into the gameplay systems and mechanics. As a result, development of this project would take some time.

    16. Shinji Hashimoto told me face-to-face while he was in London for the European launch of KH I.5 HD ReMIX, the reason Hiroyuki Ito hasn't worked on any current-gen (PS3/Xbox 360) FF games is because he's been busy planning his own project. When I asked when his project will be announced, he replied saying that Ito's adding a lot of depth to the gameplay systems and mechanics. As a result, the announcement of this project will take some time.

    Source: This information was said to me in person.

    17. I asked Yasumi Matsuno (FFT, Vagrant Story Director) via Twitter if he would write the scenario for FFXVI as a freelancer if Hiroyuki Ito was the director. He replied saying he unfortunately had "certain reservations" about answering the question. In other words, the answer to the question was in NDA territory.

    Source: https://twitter.com/YasumiMatsuno/status/374329899332292608

    18. Around 2 weeks after Yasumi Matsuno responded to my tweet, he announced at TGS 2013 that he was working on two new games with Playdek. In an interview at the show by USGamer, he said that he will not be directing either of the games. The reason he gave is because he's also got other projects going for other companies, some of which have assigned a large amount of work for him to do.

    19. The website for Agni's Philosophy was updated with an employment page that listed various vacant positions on the Luminous Studio team. It also included a page with comments by the current Luminous Studio staff. These comments included hints that another FF besides FFXV is already in production using the engine.

    20. Akihiko Yoshida (FFT, FFXII, FFXIV ARR Character Designer) announced via a message in the Bravely Default Art Book, he had left Square Enix. However, he also said he believes his work with company will continue in the future. Considering he was the character designer for Hiroyuki Ito's FFXII, there's a high chance he will also be the character designer for Hiroyuki Ito's FFXVI.

    21. Naoki Yoshida said that he's sure there will be a FFXV and FFXVI, and therefore he will constantly try to bring in fresh, new material for FFXIV ARR. The fact he said he's "sure there will be" a FFXV, even though the game had already been officially announced almost a year ago, makes it appear like he was indirectly stating that FFXVI is also already in development.

    22. At the LR FFXIII Creators Event in Singapore, Shinji Hashimoto was asked it ATB would return to mainline FF or if he's views the Action RPG approach of FFXV as the future for the mainline series. He replied saying it depends on the director, and that the director of a new mainline FF is expected to always look ahead, always look towards the future to try and find what the right direction for FF should be, and to utilise the right battle system for that vision. Therefore, FFXVI being directed by Ito would likely have a battle system that's an evolution of the Active Dimension Battle (ADB) system he created in FFXII.

    23. Yoshinori Kitase said that the technical specs of PS4/Xbox One will allow battles in FFXVI to have many more participants involved; there will be more characters for the player to control and more enemies to defeat in a single battle. He added that the Gambit system, which Hiroyuki Ito created for FFXII, may return and be used to help the player control all the party members available. Considering that only Ito wants to evolve the Gambit system in another FF game, Kitase is basically indicating that Ito will be involved in FFXVI.

    24. I met Yoshinori Kitase while he was in London for the European launch of LR FFXIII on February 13th, and I managed to ask him a question about Hiroyuki Ito. Kitase told me the reason Hiroyuki Ito has not worked on the Lightning Saga, FFXIV ARR, and the forthcoming FFXV, is because he has his own development team at Square Enix and is busy leading his own project.

    Source: This information was said to me in person. Here was the brief Q&A (typed from memory):

    The person that translated my Q&A with Kitase is standing to right of Kitase in this photo from the event.

    25. In an interview with Eurogamer, when Yoshinori Kitase was asked about a potential FFXII HD Remaster, he confirmed the FFXII team, which is headed by Hiroyuki Ito, is still intact within Square Enix. Seeing as this team hasn't released a AAA game since FFXII IZJS in 2007, they must be secretly developing FFXVI.

    Source:

    26. Yoshinori Kitase stated that FFXVI will not be for Smartphones or Tablets. The reason is because Square Enix always expects mainline FF games to be very high-end, top quality products, as it's the flagship global IP of the company.

    27. Hiroyuki Ito did his first public interview since FFXII IZJS released in 2007. The interview was about his thoughts on the PS4 hardware, which was launching in Japan the following day. Ito said that the aspect of the PS4 he's mostly interested in is how it can connect to the PS Vita and provide a second screen for the player. He said the HDTV screen acts like a football stadium and is what everyone in the audience can see, while the PS Vita screen is seen only by the coach and is the means by which he gives orders to his team.

    28. Naoki Yoshida confirmed that Hiroyuki Ito is also on the Final Fantasy Committee. The info was revealed by PC Gamer in an interview with him about his FFXIV ARR post-mortem at GDC 2014. The fact Ito is part of the FF Committee is proof that he's still a FF director and deeply involved in the series. It also increases the possibility that he's directing FFXVI.

    29. At Thailand Comicon 2014, Shinji Hashimoto said that whether or not we'll see a Medieval FF again is dependant on the director of the game, as each FF director has their own view on "fantasy". Considering that every FF game that Ito has directed has been somewhat Medieval in nature, he's the most likely candidate to direct a Medieval FFXVI.

    30. At E3 2014, Yoichi Wada demonstrated a tech demo showing off an Open World and said it was 17 times the size of Skyrim. The fact Skyrim was mentioned by name and the Open World was said to be 17 times larger than it is very, very interesting. Why is it so interesting? Go back and read point 5 in this list. You'll begin to see why Wada never debunked that rumor about Ito directing a game that surpasses Skyrim in world scale and volume of content. There really may have been some truth to it.

    31. In an interview published by 4Gamer the day after TGS 2014 ended, Hajime Tabata, the new Director of FFXV, said that the most important aspect of FF was to do something challenging. He added that if the game didn't attempt something that was a challenge, it wouldn't be worthy of being a FF game. This is similar to what Shinji Hashimoto said about mainline FF during the FFXV Q&A back at E3 2013. Back then, he said the essence of the mainline FF series was to keep challenging and striving to do something new and groundbreaking.

    Basically, this word "challenge" keeps coming up with regards to FF. If you go back to point 14 in this thread where Hashimoto was asked about what Ito is currently working on, Hashimoto responded that Ito is somebody who wants to "challenge new things all the time." Hashimoto specifically used the word "challenge" with regards to Ito's new project. So if the essence of FF is to always challenge and Ito is working on a project where he wants to challenge new things all the time, it's most likely is FFXVI.

    October 2014

    32. Akihiko Yoshida announced that he had joined CyDesignation as a company director. It's a freelance art company that has Hideo Minaba (FFVI, FFIX, FFXII Art Director) as president and CEO. Considering that Hideo Minaba's company has been contracted to provide artwork for a number of Square Enix games, including FFXIV ARR and FFXIV Heavensward, it makes it very likely that Yoshida will continue working for Square Enix. If Hiroyuki Ito is directing FFXVI, it's likely both Yoshida and Minaba will be involved on the artistic side of the game, especially considering their history with Ito's past FF titles.

    33. In a Gameblog.fr interview with Hajime Tabata at Paris Games Week, he asked if FFXV means there will never be another mainline FF that is turn-based. Tabata replied saying that when he took over FFXV as director, he originally gave it an ATB system, but eventually decided to drop it, as he couldn't think of a way to evolve it in an interesting way. He added that another director will evolve ATB for the next mainline FF. Considering that Hiroyuki Ito created ATB and already evolved it with ADB in FFXII, it makes sense that he would be the one to evolve it again in FFXVI.

    December 2014

    34. I emailed Hideo Minaba and asked if both himself and Akihiko Yoshida would be involved in FFXVI if Hiroyuki Ito was directing. I also mentioned that I loved his art direction for FFIX and FFXII and would love to see his artwork brought to life in Luminous Studio. Minaba replied saying that both FFIX and FFXII are special games for him, but he can't say anything about FFXVI. However, he closed off by saying both himself and Yoshida would love to work with Hiroyuki Ito again.

    Reading between the lines, it seems FFXVI is already in development and that's why Minaba can't talk about it. There's a very secure NDA in place. Assuming Ito is directing, I would hope that Minaba and Yoshida are Art Director and Character Designer, respectively. Only time will tell, but Minaba makes it clear they'd both like to work with Ito again, so they may already be on FFXVI, but he can't comment due to NDA.

    35. In an interview with Official Xbox Magazine UK, Hajime Tabata said that FFXVI returning to turn-based and using ATB depends on what team makes the game and it has quite a high chance of happening. However, he personally wouldn't want to make a turn-based game. Tabata basically indicates he and his team will not be making FFXVI.

    36. Akira Iwata (Senior Manager and Lead Artist of Luminous Studio) said FFXV is not the only game currently in development using Luminous Studio. So far, no other game has been publicly announced, which indicates FFXVI must be the other game.

    37. During the announcement of Deadman's Cross for the PS Vita, Square Enix clarified that Hiroyuki Ito only did the Battle Draft for the game, and just as with Guardian Cross, wasn't an actual member of the development team.

    Furthermore, it has come to my attention that the game is not even developed internally by Square Enix. It is instead outsourced to a company called Now Productions. You can see a job listing advertised by them for the Deadman's Cross team here.

    38. Hajime Tabata confirmed that Jun Akiyama (FFXII Event Director) is no longer working on FFXV. That being the case, what is he now working on? Assuming Ito's directing FFXVI, there's a high chance he brought back Akiyama to direct the cutscenes.

    Source: http://www.finalfantasy.net/xv/full-recap-final-fantasy-xv-active-time-report-60/

    39. Hajime Tabata said the complete story for FFXV will happen one game and there will be no sequels. He said this decision came from Square Enix management when he became the director. Therefore, if FFXV will have no sequels, FFXVI will definitely be released this gen.

    40. Naoki Yoshida said that if he were to direct another game after FFXIV, he love to make it completely in secret and tell no one. Then get it polished up to a playable level and suddenly reveal it to the world. This could be Yoshida hinting at what Hiroyuki Ito is doing with FFXVI. Ito is making the game in complete secrecy and under tight security, and then when the game's development is nearly complete, he'll finally reveal to world what he's been working on all these years.

    Source:
    http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/06/05/meet-the-man-who-redeemed-final-fantasy?page=2

    41. Naoki Yoshida said FFXV won't be enough to restore mainline FF to greatness. Instead, the game he believes Square Enix has a lot riding on and will need to be truly groundbreaking is FFXVI. With the director likely being Ito, it makes sense that there would be high hopes and expectations from the game.

    Source:
    http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/06/05/meet-the-man-who-redeemed-final-fantasy?page=2

    42. Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced at E3 2015. The game is being developed by the same team that made the FFXIII trilogy. Therefore, there's no way this team will be making FFXVI. The game must be already be in development by another team.

    Source: http://uk.ign.com/articles/2015/06/16/e3-2015-final-fantasy-7-hd-remake-is-finally-happening

    43. Tetsuya Nomura said that out of the staff that worked on the original FFVII and are also working on the FFVII Remake, he's the youngest one. This means that Jun Akiyama (FFXII Event Director) is not working on the game, as he's younger than Nomura. Therefore, We now know Akiyama is not working on either FFXV or FFVII Remake. What is he working on? It's likely he's working as the Event Director of FFXVI, especially if Ito's directing.

    So, you haven't left at all. That's not surprising.

    @1Truth2Lies why not updating the old thread instead of writing a new one ?

    If you feel so insecure you have to mount that much "proof" you probably want it too much.

    I thought he created a new account. Isn't Novas_ 1truth, or is that a totally different person?

    It is since a while ago he said he was leaving he dosen't want to show up as this account anymore but still had the urge to talk about Final Fantasy on this board so he made some new accounts which were @BrokenHeart and @Nova_Somnus. Now he wanted to give new info about his updated points on FFXVI so he decided to come back just for this. He will still probably post as @Nova_Somnus on other threads

    You present some very good facts and dig up some things well but you do interpret things into Ito directing XVI quite a bit. But I respect your dedication and would enjoy seeing Ito direct and design XVI. Honestly though, I'm more wondering what Toriyama & Kitase are working on.

    Yep. It makes a lot of his points weak and invalid.

    From the wall of text, I gathered the conclusion that Hiroyuki Ito is working on a new project. Anything that hints at him directing a main title is due to his history as a Final Fantasy director and reputation. No conclusive evidence on the part of him and XVI. Am I missing anything else?
