CONFIRMED: Final Fantasy XV is delayed to end of November
You’ve waited 10 years, perhaps it’s okay-ish to wait 2 more months right?
As rumors have been spreading like wildfire all through the internet these days, Final Fantasy XV’s director Hajime Tabata finally drops the bomb and announces that FFXV is indeed delayed for about 2 more months citing the reason being the team wanting “to deliver a Final Fantasy of the highest quality possible“.
In a video announcement made earlier today, Tabata cites that the master version of the game has already been completed and they are working on a gameplay video which will be revealed this week as well as stating that the master version of the game will be playable this coming Gamescom. However, even with the base work already done, the FFVX team felt that the master version itself might not deliver the best quality that they wanted for FFXV and they are working on a day-one patch to help assess it.
While normally, a Day-one patch applies after installing the game on a PC or inserting it in your console, Tabata also took into consideration players who might not have internet connectivity and decided to just include the patch in the game’s CDs for everyone to simultaneously play FFXV during its release date without the need to download hundreds of megabytes of updates to improve the game’s overall quality. The patch is already in the works, and the FFXV team is also considering future content through the form of updates and DLCs.
FFXV’s new release date is now November 29, 2016.
