Kane said:It may be that they don't take notice of projects starting as 99 times out of 100, these projects self destruct early on anyway. For all we know some of them may have created an ekaf cease and desist in order to cover up an embarasing team breakup.
As for why they are doing this? Square released CT in the porting session on the PSX, and these were IIRC rereleased around the release of FFX. While something is still buyable and usable on a current platform, I expect Square don't want people getting a remake and not paying them for it.
