Yasumi Matsuno shows off scrapped plans for a "Final Fantasy Tactics 2"

Final Fantasy XIV‘s “Return to Ivalice” raid series reunites Final Fantasy Tactics director Yasumi Matsuno with many of his old team members who are now working on the MMORPG. During a live broadcast today, where both teams were commenting a playthrough of FFT, Matsuno showed off scrapped plans for a sequel.

After Final Fantasy Tactics released, around the time Vagrant Story was being created, Hironobu Sakaguchi was planning a “Final Fantasy Tactics 2” project. There were discussions about whether or not Squaresoft could develop the game internally, however, the decision was made to outsource.

Since 3D development was difficult, the plan was to use a 2D hexagonal system that you can see in the images below. Ultimately, according to Matsuno, it was shelved for a number of reasons.
