Fabula Nova Crystallis began as an off-shoot Final Fantasy franchise focused around Final Fantasy XIII. Initially, this franchise was meant to encompass three games:
- Final Fantasy XIII
- Final Fantasy Agito XIII
- Final Fantasy Versus XIII
Over time, however, plans changed. Agito XIII had its name changed to disassociate it from Final Fantasy XIII and became the potential start of another franchise in Final Fantasy Type-0. Additionally, the public reaction to Final Fantasy XIII led Square Enix to create Final Fantasy XIII-2, largely to address issues that players had with the original game. They have since created a third game in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, which closes Final Fantasy XIII protagonist Lightning's story.
The remaining game, Final Fantasy Versus XIII, an action-RPG being developed by Tetsuya Nomura's Kingdom Hearts team, went dark for years after its debut trailer with limited information trickling out only every once in a while. During E3 2013, however, Square Enix unveiled the game once more, and also revealed that it is now Final Fantasy XV. XV is still considered part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis sub-franchise, though it has no story connections to any of the other games.
