I personally think that the numerous leaks about versus xiii's true nature that are floating on the net all have some validity, but also have a lot of "other stuff" that is added from the perspective of the person delivering the leak.
But honestly I think XV has pretty much the same beats that Versus was going to have. Most of the changes being related to distancing itself from the FNC mythology, having to re-purpose characters that were closely tied to that (Stella and maybe Ardyn) and removing any unnecessarily confusing plot devices (Nomura-isms) like dream worlds and time travel. Now VsXIII may have been slightly darker than XV but I think that mostly comes from the whole death worship stuff they were courting and even possible 'leaked' character deaths such as Stella, Prompto and Gladio which supposedly happen late in the story. So the first chapter was maybe just as much of a lighthearted road trip as XV but things got darker in the later acts of VsXIII more than in XV. But now I'm getting too speculative again so I'll shut up
