It seems the rumor of the delayed release date for Final Fantasy XV has been true. Square Enix has sent a press release, stating that Final Fantasy XV delayed from September 30th to November 29th! The main reason of the delay is to allow the development teams time to further polish and conduct quality testing. It is done with the hope that the game’s quality can match the expectations of both the fans and the creative teams.
Below is the official statement from Hajime Tabata, the series’ director:
“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.”
Tabata has published a special message video, commenting about the delay and you can watch it here:
As an additional note, they will notify later whether the release date of the disc version for both Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV will be changed or remain unchanged. The digital version of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV remains at August 30th.
Final Fantasy XV will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide in November 29, 2016. You can read all post related to Final Fantasy XV here, or all Final Fantasy series here. Check also the collector’s edition here.
