Square Enix registers "Final Fantasy 13 2" Domain Name
January 12, 2011
Domain name and copyright registry-spotting genius superannuation has spotted an interesting new domain name registration by the guys at Square Enix - finalfantasy13-2game.com.
The domain name Whois information can be viewed through
, and shows that the domain registration was filed on Monday 11th January 2011. It's due to expire on the same day in 2013.
, superannuation noted that the domain had been registered by "Corporation Service Company" - the same company that has registered domains for other Square Enix titles, including the official website for upcoming third person shooter MindJack,
We've done a little extra investigation on top, and the same company has recently been used to register domains for
Front Mission Evolved
, all major recent or upcoming Square Enix releases.
This makes it pretty damn likely that the registration is indeed from Square Enix - the question now is if the registration is just Square Enix merely domain-name squatting or if they're up to something more interesting - like putting out a full-blown sequel to Final Fantasy XIII. It's worth noting much of the FF13 team came straight off the back of working on Final Fantasy X-2, the first FF main series sequel.
If that's the case, it's likely that this newly registered domain is an indication that we can expect announcements of new Final Fantasy XIII-related games at the
Square Enix First Production Department Premiere
, which is due to take place next week.
As always, it's worth remembering that this isn't concrete proof that Square Enix registered the domain, and it could all be a fan or something - but given the evidence above, we'd say that it's likely that it is from Square Enix. The question is why. We've pinged Square Enix for comment.
