Final Fantasy XV Delayed Until November

Final Fantasy XV has been delayed, publisher Square Enix has confirmed.

While previously scheduled for launch on September 30, the game is now expected to arrive two months later, on November 29. A video was released today, in which director Hajime Tabata explains the team’s decision to postpone.

“Our objective with Final Fantasy XV was to deliver a Final Fantasy of the highest possible quality to every single person who buys the game,” he said (via. The Verge). “We have completed the master version, but when it comes to that highest possible quality, we felt that we had not quite reached this standard yet.”

He continued (via. Kotaku): “From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this,”  

As the director and lead of this project, I wish to personally apologize for the additional wait. As a team, we want Final Fantasy XV to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding.”

As reported by The Verge, Square Enix had previously planned to release additional content via a day-one patch, but ultimately decided to hold back the game to ensure that players can experience the full game, without connecting to the internet. “If we were to go ahead and release it, then myself and my team would wind up regretting it.” Tabata adds in the video.

As such, all content previously in the patch will now be included in the final disc release, along with some “extra things on top of that”.

Final Fantasy XV is now scheduled for launch on November 29 2016 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more information, you can check out the game’s official website here, or keep up to date via Twitter.
