But when did Versus turn to XV? And even if this was XV it could have been the name that changed and not the story. Like it was called XV but still had the versus story.
Versus became XV in July 2012. And also no because these 2013 FFXV storyboards show Stella is Noctis's childhood friend, while in Versus Nomura specifically stated that Noctis and Stella meet for the first time at the party, which is when they're already adults. That is already a story change that is a big dynamic shift between who Stella was in Versus to who she is presented as in XV in these storyboards.
Actually the name change started as early as 2008 and was solidified in 2011. Said by Nomura himself.

The whole name change thing started when they got a look at the next gen consoles not in 2008
And the name change happened in 2012 not 2011.
From the man himself at E3 2013:

Final Fantasy Versus XIII was announced in 2006, however internal discussion for a title change into FFXV began as early as 1-2 years following the original announcement. “By that time, a fair amount of time had already passed since the announcement and Versus was a well-known title, so it wasn’t a given that this would be XV; it could have still been Versus,” said Nomura. The final decision made after FF Agito XIII became Final Fantasy Type-0 in 2011.

Oh ok never knew thanks but I know for certain the finalization of the XV name was 2012 though

"XV was rebranded around the summer of 2012, and at that point in time we said, 'OK, this is going to be XV," and we also decided, 'Well, we're not going to continue with PlayStation 3 hardware.' We're going to go for whatever is next, whatever is new, the latest technology - Tabata

Welp here's hoping to for Versus XV

- The plot will be completely rewritten from scratch and will feature all the elements Nomura wanted in it, like Stella, the "eyes that can see the light of expiring souls", the country of Solheim and so on, while everything related to
Kingsglaive will be completely removed.

Not too sure how I feel about this but if this is how it is color me cautiously optimistic

of course they'll do it for a handful of nostalgic fans that can't let Versus go and accept the fact XV is what the project ended up being.

i mean, they took a lot of time just to announce the most popular FF would get a remake, giving the pity demand for a Versus reboot expect it to happen in 40 years.

Luckily it's not a remake then it's an AU
