It seems that it is a new version of the Luminous Engine, which is being used to develop Final Fantasy XV. Also this is not the first time that Luminous Studio Pro has come up, as in one of the latest “World of Wonders” trailers the name appears at the end.

Many gamers and industry analyst have been speculating that whether or not Square Enix would continue to use the game engine after Final Fantasy XV, given that other projects like Final Fantasy VII Remake and Kingdom Hearts III and being developed on Unreal Engine 4.

The trademark filing indicates that the company does not intend to abandon the game engine, and might use it for another game, given how much time and resources the company has put into this game engine.

While Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the game director has previously hinted towards the PC version of the game. Recently, game director, Hajime Tabata, revealed that the PC version of Final Fantasy XV is not coming soon.

According to the director, the development team is focused on polishing the game for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and to port the game to PC would require a lot of work and will take almost a year.

Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to launch on November 29, 2016 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
