Square Enix might be working on the Final Fantasy VII remake but that doesn't mean the developer is only working on that game, as we know that Final Fantasy XVI is coming in the near future but what will it arrive as?

Final Fantasy XIV director teases 'straightforward fantasy' |

According to Naoki Yoshida, the director of Final Fantasy XIV, we could see something different. Yoshida said at the recent Final Fantasy XIV Paris Fan Festival: "First, if you're asking whether the Final Fantasy series will get another MMO soon, I think the chances are unlikely so long as Final Fantasy XIV is doing well. On that note, personally speaking, I'd like to see a Final Fantasy that is straightforward fantasy, one that doesn't have much machinery, and with no mecha in it. After all, we're having trouble with the Garlean Empire being too powerful. Ah, okay, that was a bad joke".

What do you think we'll see Final Fantasy XVI arrive as?
