For some characters definitely. You spend the entire game searching for Lightning, traveling through time to do so, that's basically the "non spoiler" plot of the game. According to the synopsis I've read, Fang has been MIA for years and nobody knows where she is, but I'd assume she will pop up somewhere.
But for characters like Vanille and Hope... I wouldn't even blink if they weren't in the game at all.
On another note, I did just realize the other day that Kingdom of Amalur is coming out on Feb 7th, which means I may actually be holding off on FF for a while. Not sure which one I want to play first.
