Final Fantasy XV officially delayed to November 29

Over the weekend, rumors began to surface that Square Enix was getting ready to delay Final Fantasy XV‘s September 30 launch. This morning, the publisher confirmed these reports and revealed the RPG will now be released on November 29.

According to Square Enix, the new 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.”

Hajime Tabata, Final Fantasy XV’s Director, added: “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.”

More commentary from Tabata about the delay can be found in a video message from the Director, which has been embedded above.
