UPDATE: A retraction regarding the "remake of FFXII" by composer Arnie Roth has been issued:
"I want to rectify a statement made from the stage Saturday night at our Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy concert in Pittsburgh," Roth wrote on Distant Worlds' official Facebook page. Distant Worlds is a concert series showcasing music from Final Fantasy's soundtracks.
"Following conversations with composer Hitoshi Sakimoto regarding new concert arrangements of music from Final Fantasy 12, regrettably, the term ‘remake' was used in error during one of the announcements that took place from the stage during the concert," Roth said. "We sincerely regret any confusion this has caused."
Rumors have been swirling and partially confirmed that Final Fantasy XII will be getting either reworked / updated or completely remade after a Distant Worlds concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this past weekend. During the concert, composer Arnie Roth stated that the game would be getting 'remade', though it is unclear whether this is indeed a fact, or if it will be a reworking of the beloved title.
It’s abnormal for a composer to be making random announcements like this, so there’s reason to be skeptical, but RPG fans have long predicted that a FFXII remake would be en route after the success of Final Fantasy X HD on PS3, Vita, and PS4. Prediction: Square denies this is true on Monday, then announces it on Wednesday.
