Final Fantasy XV Delayed Until November

FF XV

Square Enix has announced that the highly anticipated, and long in development, Final Fantasy XV will be delayed. Originally slated for September 30th, the game is now scheduled for worldwide release two months later, on November 29th. The delay comes primarily to “allow the development teams time to further polish and conduct quality testing”. We have included the press release below, as well as a video from Hajime Tabata, the game’s director, discussing the delay.

As more information becomes available, we will share it with our readers.

To deliver the iconic FINAL FANTASY experience to audiences around the world, SQUARE ENIX® today announced that the global release date for FINAL FANTASY® XV will be November 29, 2016.

This release date will allow the development teams time to further polish and conduct quality testing so that the reality of the game can match the expectations of both the fans and the creative teams.

“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,” said Hajime Tabata the game director. “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.”

We’ll notify whether the release dates for the disc version of both KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV™ and BROTHERHOOD FINAL FANTASY XV™ will be changed or unchanged at a later time. The release date of KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV digital version is unchanged from August 30.
