The whole thing with Xeno is that the creators felt shafted or something and went off to make Monolith Soft under Namco. They had some grand plan for 7 games in a reimagining of the whole Xeno universe, called Xenosaga but it ended up being 3 episodes.I never played any of the Xeno games after Xenogears. Apparently the Xenosaga games were supposed to be in the same universe but apparently they also weren't? And then they only made ep 1-3 so the two episodes, 4 and 6, which would have been most closely related to Xenogears ended up not even happeing.
The original Xenogears thing was some big plan for 6 games I believe, it was detailed in some artbook/compendium style thing called Perfect Works.
I can't really remember how the story goes anymore, but I remember hearing some nonsense about how the 7 episodes of Xenosaga were only Episode 1 of Xenogears or some donkey nonsense, but none of that matters now. Both Xenosaga and Xenogears were apparently small parts of super grand sagas that never were, not much sense thinking too much about it.
Monolith Soft is now under Nintendo where they are happily making Xenoblade.
Any sort of Xenogears continuation/remake is highly unlikely since the people that would be responsible for it have long pissed off.
