Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra ("Thus Spoke Zarathustra")

A year has passed since Xenosaga Episode II. Shion has resigned her post at Vector Industries after realizing that the company is deeply connected to the cause of the Gnosis phenomenon. She has thus joined Scientia, an underground organization, in order to unveil Vector's true objectives. The development of KOS-MOS is to be cancelled, and a mysterious android, T-elos appears to be taking KOS-MOS' place. Shadows of suspicion and conspiracy surround T-elos. Uncover the future of mankind in this much-anticipated conclusion to the Xenosaga trilogy.

Too bad episode 2 turned off so many. 3 was well done despite the budget limitations

SE owns the Xenogears franchise while NB owns the Xenosaga name. Takahashi can go and work wherever he wants. The story was never completed. He scripted six games, and only was able to release three (Ep II was actually the second have of Ep I) There is a lot of story left to tell. I was just pondering who would fund him to make more games. SE won't NB won't either and Nintendo? I doubt it. Most publishers in Japan see him as a failure who uses all and more of the budgets he is given and the sales only break even. He is a talented story teller and it is a shame he was forced to stop. In USA we got all three games and I would like more. I know it will never happen, but MS is the wealthiest company on earth and could afford to fund it. I always wonder if MS was flooded with letters of gamers who would buy the games. Who knows what would happen. Intrigued?

@ Mutiverse37:

-MS wants popular franchises, this is probably too small of a franchise.
- NB owns the franchise, not the creator
- The story is finished

Beyond?? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. That's a good one. I, of course, was refering to the resources that Microsoft has. Takahashi had the door slammed shut on him by NB and Nintendo won't green light a Xenosaga project, but Microsoft has the resources to get it done, if they were motivated. The point I was making, is if he went to them, and convinced them to fund a Xeno project I think it would be pretty cool. Would you buy his games? Can you think of another company that could/would do it?
