FFXV Set For 2016, S-E Knows Fans Are "A Bit Worried"
Oh, come on. You had to know the 2015 release window for this game was bogus.
Anyway, we still don't have an exact launch date for Final Fantasy XV, but director Hajime Tabata says the game should be available some time next year.
When asked about the date, Tabata replied:
"At the very least, I can tell you that it isn't going to be released this year. I think we'll be able to tell you when we're making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month."
Then he was asked about how Square Enix intends to reassure fans who are lacking excitement after such a long development process. Remember, FFXV was once Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which was originally unveiled all the way back in 2006 (the same year PS3 launched). Tabata admitted that franchise followers are probably concerned:
"I understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media. We really do get the feeling that people are a bit worried. Certainly, one thing I would like to say to them to reassure them, is that we've set down the release date, we know when it is, and we've got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we're proceeding along that as planned."
Tabata added that the release definitely won't be in 2017, so we should consider 2016 as written in stone. Well, we knew it wasn't coming this year, anyway; any guesses on next year's date? For more info, check out the latest from Gamescom.
