Square Enix debunks Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy 15 release date rumors

Getting ahead of potential rumors, Square Enix is calling the release dates some people may have seen for their games "placeholders."

Some unsubstantiated rumors had been floating around the Web that Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV are coming out later this year, but Square Enix is calling them incorrect. The rumors cite a European release calendar distributed by Square Enix and states that both games are slated for a release sometime in 2014.

In a message to GameSpot, a Square Enix representative wrote, "We're aware an internal document has been in circulation listing release dates for select Square Enix titles. This information contained in this document is inaccurate and features placeholder timing.

"Specifically, no announcement has been made to date for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV--their projected release window remains to be advised."

We probably won't have more solid details about either game until E3, but given the early look we had at Kingdom Hearts III last year, it seems highly unlikely that the game has any chance of coming out before 2015.
