Do we know the veracity of that article?

If true, then we know there will be no more official Chrono installments. At least the guessing game is over.

EDIT: Looks like it's legit. All sorts of official news sites are carrying it.

Look up: "Square: Want more Chrono Trigger? Buy More!" on Google for more.

"No I'm not! Buy more! We totally need more money! *laughs*"

Weren't the sales really good? Hell even if they weren't an amazing number of sales, Square still should've seen the waters had been tested and it was popular enough to warrant a new installment.

Yea, there goes my last sliver of  hope that the C&D was cause they cared about the franchise.  I'm mentioning this in the next video installment.

Fucking hell. Was that some kind of provocation or is he not aware that SE America just shut down their third Chrono fangame in the span of five years? And CT:DS sold more than ANY Front Mission game ever did you fucking vice-president.

I am not completely buying the news stories, because nowadays news works like this.

News A says XYZ.
News B assumes News A was accurate and also reports XYZ.
News C, D, E, and F reports XYZ as well.

And soon everyone is calling it truth.

Now I'm not denying it, either, I'm just saying, I don't don't trust this 100% just yet...

Very true Boo. We need an RPG news site to confirm this. This is going to sound silly, but does anyone have a forum account over at RPGamer with more than 10 posts? You can't create topics over there unless you've got 10, and a reputable news site needs to be notified so they can investigate. Or something.

This is rather big news.

EDIT: Actually, Boo makes a very, very, very good point. Everything seems to lead straight back to the site Pyt posted, and I'm unfamiliar with their reputable-ness. Anyone know? Given the timing, this could be a huge hoax just to make it look like SE kicked the fan community down again.

Darn it, we need IGN, RPGamer, or some other really reputable site to get the scoop.

The best thing to do against Asian douchebaggery? Make your own creation, like I did. Though I'm not trying to advertise mine.

Also, I mean no offense to Asian folk here. It was a... well, I don't know what to call it, but I wasn't saying that as a whole.

Ya, except you're getting your Western myth a bit off while doing so...
