I'm not trying to absolve him of all blame. Clearly, something went wrong in the 2011-2013 period that resulted in the team's morale being low prior to the directorial change. I just don't think it's fair to act like he's incompetent and lacking in vision just because stuff changed.
I also heard that Square Enix didn't have much faith in the game itself which is probably why they took Nomura off the project in 2014 to have him work on more safe projects like Kingdom Hearts 3 and the Final Fantasy VII Remake , and expected it to flop and met with harsh criticisms.
Luckily this isn't the case, and who knows maybe after Kingdom Hearts 3 is finished, and Final Fantasy VII Remake is on Part Two who know maybe Square might tap Nomura to realize his previous vision of a Versus trilogy starring the Chocobros, I mean they assets are there so it could mean much more reasonable development times as opposed to the WTF fiasco that was XV, as Square gets ready for FFXVI(whether it's an MMO, Single Player game, PS4/XBO/PC title, or next gen/PC title we don't know I suspect next gen let them hammer out some sequels, the remake(if not remakes if FF1 gets one), , like after part 2 of the FFVII Remake Square will have to figure out what they want to do with the franchise whether they want to go straight to FFXVI or wait a bit with a FFX-3, and maybe a Versus trilogy or XV sequels, then a XVI for PlayStation 5, Whatever Microsoft will name there next Xbox(fuck it Xbox Two: DIldoblade Edition), and Steam(FOR GOD SAKES CAN WE HAVE A SIMULTANEOUS RELEASE PLEASE AHHHHHHHHH) with Ito as the director. Oh and as a trilogy.
