Kotaku and Gamnesia are reporting that Final Fantasy XV will miss its planned September 30 launch on the PS4 and Xbox One. According to their sources, who work within “the corporate level of the retail chain GameStop,” it looks the game’s release date has been pushed back to November 29.
Final Fantasy XV has been in development for more than a decade, so this latest delay shouldn’t be that much of a surprise to fans. Square Enix is known for wanting every detail just right, and a few more months in the oven could be just the thing it needs.
It’s not known when Square Enix will officially announce the delay, however, their instructions to GameStop’s corporate office said that promotional materials for the new release date are not to be displayed until after Sunday, August 14. So confirmation from the publisher could come as early as tomorrow.
