White Engine development stalled, Final Fantasy XIII too?

At Square-Enix’s fiscal meeting they candidly mentioned the White Engine development is moving at a sluggish pace. However, they are not abandoning creating their in house engine. Since the engine is the backbone for Final Fantasy XIII it seems likely that the Playstation 3 game will be further delayed. Square-Enix did not mention a date for Final Fantasy XIII (maybe now 2009? edit: this date is just me speculating) or Dragon Quest IX, which was originally slated to come out this year.
