It was never a popular game, didn't even get a HD remaster treatment.

Yasumi Matsumo Posted a Vagrant Story 2 Prologue Summary on Twitter

Yasumi Matsumo revealed that he’s been sitting on a story treatment for Vagrant Story 2 for about 20 years now. He did so when chatting with fans on Twitter about his recent scenario in Final Fantasy XIV, which itself was a continuation of the game’s Return to Ivalice story. Some cheeky comments got a bit out of hand, but the conversation continued. Matsumo dropped a whole prologue for Vagrant Story 2, introducing a new protagonist. It was only in Japanese, but has since been translated by Stefan B.K. [Thanks, Stefan!]

It probably goes without saying, but if you’re interested in Vagrant Story, there are likely what constitute as spoilers ahead. Read at your own risk!

First, here is the original tweet from Matsumo, in which a fan asked an innocent question and got a breaking Vagrant Story 2 news bomb in return:

Then, take a look at the translation-slash-localization from Stefan B.K.

It’s important to not consider this a hopeful lead-in to a sequel announcement. Matsuno did post a goofy “just wait and see!” sort of message around this time, but nothing beyond that. Square Enix is certainly full of surprises, and Ivalice has consistently been present in Final Fantasy since the original Final Fantasy Tactics.

Vagrant Story was only ever released for the PlayStation, but it is available as a PSOne Classic for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation Vita.

You know... i know it has it's fans, but i could never get into Vagrant story.

I think it would be best to get a proper sequel to Final fantasy tactics. To get a sequel to Vagrant story right, it would have to be a very expensive high-end project. I don't see square taking that risk.

A Switch HD Remaster would not require a lot of budget, if this is not one of the games that Square Enix lost the original source codes.
