Luminous Productions, the development cell inside Square Enix behind Final Fantasy 15, is working on a new, triple-A title. That's according to Final Fantasy 15 DLC director Takeshi Terada in a new interview.
Speaking with Famitsu (thanks, ResetEra), Terada says that now that work on the last Final Fantasy 15 DLC, Episode Ardyn, wrapped up that Luminous is readying a new triple-A project, possibly for the PlayStation 5. "The team that created 'FF15' wants to create a new triple-A title that is not an existing IP, it is why Luminous Productions was born," says Terada.
"I cannot talk about the details, but like 'FF15,' I will create a game based on a new world drawn with high quality, high end. Please be assured that the next project is already in motion."
Whatever the new project is, it sounds like a brand-new IP from Terada geared towards the triple-A space. The timing, as well as a job listing spotted last year for a PS5 project, also suggests whatever Luminous is working on is going to be next-gen.
Luminous Productions was founded by FF15 director Hajime Tabata, who has since left the company to start his own studio. The move scuttled plans for FF15's remaining DLC. Square Enix has explicitly stated that the studio's mission is to build "large-scale, high-quality triple-A game titles, which best leverage [Luminous'] strengths."
So whatever it is that ends up coming out of Luminous Productions, expect high production values and visuals on par with that of Final Fantasy 15's. Whatever your thoughts on that game are (and they are mixed), at least we can agree that it looked really good.
