It looks like the Final Fantasy XV Universe hasn’t been totally unveiled yet, as a brand new mobile game was announced today. The title, which is currently in development, will be a mobile MMO set in the world of Final Fantasy XV.
Machine Zone, known for the huge mobile hits Game of War and Mobile Strike, will be the developer behind the title. A press release on the game states that the title will, “combine the characters, storyline, and soundtrack of Final Fantasy XV with Machine Zone’s technology, which allows millions of people around the world to play together in a single universe in real time.”
Machine Zone CEO and founder Gabe Leydon also issued a statement saying, “It is an honor to work on a franchise I have loved since I was a kid. FINAL FANTASY is an iconic franchise in gaming. Bringing FINAL FANTASY XV to the mobile MMO gaming world is a significant opportunity for our players and we are proud to partner with Square Enix.” According to the market researcher App Annie, Mobile Strike is currently the second highest grossing app in the United States, while Game of War – Fire Age sits at number four.
Yosuke Matsuda, Square Enix President and Representative Director, responded in part by saying, ““Machine Zone has a stellar track record in the mobile gaming space and we are putting FINAL FANTASY XV in trustworthy hands.”
There’s no release date or window for the Final Fantasy XV Mobile MMO as of yet, only that it’s currently in development. This will mark the third mobile game that ties into the world of XV, with Justice Monsters V already released, and King’s Knight: Wrath of the Dark Dragon coming before the year’s end.
