After some rumors popped up online during the weekend about how Final Fantasy XV would supposedly be delayed until November, Square Enix has now made it very official, giving the game a new launch date of November 29. Hajime Tabata, the game’s director, had this to say.
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.
For more information about why this hard decision was made, you can check the video below where the game’s director explains in full why they are doing this:
