Final Fantasy XV

During a recent interview by Famitsu, Shinji Hashimoto, producer at Square Enix, said that they will release no new information of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III, which are currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, at next week's E3 2014.

When Famitsu asked if there will be information of Final Fantasy XV, Hashimoto replied with the following:

Well, first I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV. Instead we are currently planning to exhibit new information at events after E3 2014. I am extremely grateful to all the fans who excitedly anticipate FFXV, and I’m looking forward to share new information when the timing is right. I would appreciate if fans hold out until then.

About Kingdom Hearts III, Hashimoto said the following:

We are are working diligently on KH3, but I think releasing new information will still take some time. We included a small part regarding the story of KH3 In the new trailer KH 2.5 prepared for E3 2014, so please check that out.

Anyone surprised? It's dissapointing, but was kinda expected.
