A month ago some concept art leaked for a new Final Fantasy project that was, to the surprise of many, being developed by Grin (Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate). Besides learning that the game was called “Fortress” and would be a spin-off of Final Fantasy XII not much was known about the game. Due to Square Enix pulling Grin off the project and Grin’s subsequent closure it was believed that we probably would never see the game get released but that may not be the case.
GamesIndustry.biz is reporting that “Fortress” is indeed still in development at Square Enix. No specific details were given on which SE team is working on “Fortress” or when we could potentially get an announcement for the project. It’ll be interesting to see how the game shapes up and if it’ll be completely reworked from what Grin was working on, both in terms of the art and the gameplay which was rumored to be an action game.
Below you can see some of the leaked “Fortress” concept art along with a few additional images I just stumbled upon.
