Referring to the above, I finally found a transcript from the magazine, from a French KH website. Here's as close a translation as I can manage.

There has been a lot of speculation that Yozora looks a lot like the character of Noctis in VERSUS, but as the title's director and knowing all the story that was planned, I can tell you this ... the worlds of VERUM REX and VERSUS are very different. There are still many unanswered questions, one of which is "What is the connection between VERUM REX and KH III?", and all I can say is that as the plot progresses, it will surely be an unexpected development.
As can be seen, the "unexpected development" was firmly in relation to the connection between Verum Rex and KHIII, and nothing to do with a connection between Verum and Versus. Nomura himself has spoken. These two are not the same.

Here's the link: https://www.khdestiny.fr/news-1786-Interview-de-Tetsuya-Nomura-dans-Dengeki-PS.html

Basically, putting speculation to rest. Good thing too.

Not surprised, good on him for further clarification.

Its 2020 and people are still getting ahead of themselves, I'm so over the Versus drama.
While I don't like to get involved in the Versus drama and weird theories involving it, you have to admit that by re-using some of the assets from that project, Nomura is really asking for the drama. He loves to stir shit like that.

It's nice that Nomura's officially confirmed this but I don't see the fanboy wars stopping any time soon. Someone, somewhere will manage to do enough mental gymnastics to get some totally random conspiracy theory out of this and if they can sensationalize it enough people will eat it up.

Disappointing but some of that I guess isn't surprising.

There will be an offline function for the Mod Organizer that will come at a later date apparently, though i wonder what the conversation for that will be like.

thats why online components sucks, they can get terminated just like that.
The biggest reason I strongly dislike people championing the potential of Streaming domination, less offline alternatives which sets a nasty long-term precedent.

I liked the days when games were games, with most of their best content actually unlockable within the game itself.
Yeah I absolutely agree.
Back in the days where internet wasn't there yet you could play the game spoiler free without watching the trailers, forums and social media, only by magazines.
But now... it's all connected.
Also those endlessly DLC's and patches they offer, ugh.

I don't want another FF XV, an incomplete game...

I take these type of comments with a giant mountain of salt. Sure, there is no denying that FFXV, regardless of what version you want to look at, disappointed a lot of people. Then again, this naturally comes with the territory of an IP running for so long and changing things up so much.

The game had a definitive beginning, middle, and end. That to me is a complete product. If we use a judging metric of "completeness" on the premise of all ideas making it into the final product that devs wanted to aim for...well there would be a lot more "incomplete" games. Stuff gets cut all the time when it comes to the development of these games. You just knew a lot more when it came to FFXV specifically.

Fun fact, there was enough cut content from FFXIII that another game could have been produced off of it.

Sounds like the avatara system is getting removed? Am I reading that wrong? Very very strange, I'm kind of upset that it'll be gone. I really enjoyed playing as my own character in the story mode, even though I know alot of people don't prefer to play that way.
