Lightning Returns Will Be the Last Final Fantasy XIII

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be the last game set in the Final Fantasy XIII universe. While the games announcement during PAX noted that the game would wrap up the story of Lightning, it wasnt clear what that meant for the future of other characters. Could there still be a Final Fantasy XIII-4 telling the story of Snow or Noel? In an interview with IGN, Lightning Returns director Motomu Toriyama has now confirmed that this will not be the case, and Lightning Returns will indeed see the end of XIIIs entire story.
The Lightning Saga that began with Final Fantasy XIII -- in other words, the characters and universe that revolve around Lightning -- will come to an end with this installment, Toriyama told IGN via translator. Im sure that Lightning and the people around her will all have a happy ending. Please look forward to the final episode worthy to be called the denouement of the Lightning Saga.

I'm not liking the idea of a solo-character gameplay ending the series. After two cliffhanger endings in the series, I'm glad to hear they will get a happy ending though.

Also, and interesting read here with more info for LR:FFXIII

Excellent question, and the answer is, the Crackdown 2 naming crew got ahold of the game
If I'm posting stuff, it means that I have nothing to do or that there isn't an anime to watch.

I'm STILL getting over that cliffhanger ending.

Made the 40+ hours of story leading up to that point very unrewarding

Not really a fan of the one playable character direction either, it's going to feel even less like a true FF game than the other 2 did.

I'll still play it to finish out the story though probably.
**Thanks to Rajeanero for the sig**

Wait, there's ANOTHER FFXIII? I thought people were fucking joking when they said there would be a third one. Then again I never saw the ending of XIII-2.
