Dear Square Enix,
Mr. Tokita said that as far as he knows, Chocobo Racing 3D is a closed project. That can be considered a confirmation of Chocobo Racing 3D being cancelled.
This isn’t surprising, however, there are two things I would like to comment:
You never officially declared the game to be cancelled. There is a tendency of you not doing those kind of announcements, which are actually essential, even though they’re negative. It indeed is important to inform your customers and your fans of the status of projects. I’ve been waiting for an update on this game for years, asking your community staff about it and not receiving any answers. Now that I found out what’s up, at least I’m at peace in that regard.
You seem to have abandoned the Chocobo series. Chocobo games were always a welcome addition to my experience as a Final Fantasy fan. They were cute and warm, full with cameos that I greatly appreciated. I still play Chocobo Racing to this day with my family and friends! Chocobo Racing being the old game it is, we would surely like a current generation take on our most beloved multiplayer game.
Please give Chocobo another chance.
