Final Fantasy 15 'quite far into development, given high priority' by Square

Development on next-gen RPG Final Fantasy XV is coming along well, series producer Yoshinori Kitase has suggested, telling VideoGamer.com that the game is "quite far into development" and has been given a "very high priority" status by Square Enix. (Final Fantasy XV, PS4, Xbox One)

I'm sure it will be @SquareSoft

But then again, how many of us assumed Versus was going to be between 2009-2011? We have to be realistic regarding Japanese development, even MGS4 was 2008.

I dont understand what the hell are they doing with this game? How much time can developing a game possibly take!? It has been 8 YEARS since the game was revealed! >_< Even now, there are no solid details and the game is again missing in action for more than 7 months.
In the meantime we continue to enjoy the glorious Lightning Saga every couple of years.../s

It's nice to see that they are giving it "high priority" now that it is no longer a PS3 exclusive. /s
noctis_lumia  +   447d ago
doesnt matter the game will sale triple on the ps4 its a fact

once square see those sweets numbers i bet next ff will be sony exclu
adventureghost124  +   447d ago
well look at ff13 and tell me that, It sold terribly on Xbox yet they keep pushing it on that system. I don't think Square is ever going to learn or even recover from all of these major mistakes that they have been making.

"It's quite far into development now and it is being given a very high priority within the company itself, but that doesn't mean Kingdom Hearts isn't."

Bout damn time since Lightning Returns is coming out tomorrow. Hopefully we'll see something at Sony's E3 this year running on the latest build with a release date.

2020 for PS5 than :p

Anyway, they wasted 8 years for this game. I really hope it will be worth the wait and much much better than XIII.

And of course i don't want them to milk it to XV-2, XV-3 Noctis Returns, XV-4 Noctis Will Be Back, and so on. I want one epic long journey with amazing conclusion.
Agent2009  +   447d ago
XV-5 Noctis Will Be Back in a Minute
XV-6 Noctis Will Be Back Soon, Don't Lose Patience!
XV-6 Noctis Won't Be Back
XV-7 Or will he?
MegaRay  +   447d ago
My grandchildren will be happy playing XV-2 day one lol
Anyway i really hope we'll see KH and FF XV very soon as those are the only reason ill buy a PS4

I'd agree, I want final fantasy to be just that. The "Final" Fantasy, like how it used to be.
robothouserock  +   447d ago
I like how they had to renumber it because it had been in development already so long that they made 2 sequels to XIII and created XIV and THEN created XIV AGAIN because it blew and still we haven't seen XIII-Versus. Games that get pushed back as unceremoniously as XIII-Versus tend to be disappointing, though I'm not wishing for it.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   447d ago
Didn't they pretty much gurantee FFXV was getting sequels.

"A world of Versus epic". I don't rlly mind sequels as long as their good.
MrSwankSinatra  +   447d ago
This game is either gonna make or break square when it comes to final fantasy.
noctis_lumia  +   447d ago
the game is made by nomura team and the guyz who did ff 7:advent children movie and kingdom hearts...the game is already a success

dont expect this game soon. Late 2015 i Think.
DarkLord1003  +   447d ago
The most important part of a FF game are its characters. Then the story imo. I want FF characters who are easy to like and not annoying. There is no character in FFXIII who is actually likeable. I miss the good old FF days. Games like VI, VII, VIII, IX are one of the best games in general I've ever played.
robothouserock  +   447d ago
The glory days. VII is still the highest selling Final Fantasy by a margin and each game's sales have been decreasing since then, which is funny because each console has a much larger install base than the PSX.

Ah. So we should see it in 2018?
shaun mcwayne  +   447d ago
FF16 will be out before this. What a wait its been.
I don't think it could ever live up to the wait we have had to endure.
If it did it would have to be the best game ever made in the history and future of the gaming universe.
Still day 1 for me if I live that long.
jagstar44  +   447d ago
come on it's been like 7 years, hurry the hell up
sssb  +   447d ago
Please no more Lightning appearance in XV
LAWSON72  +   447d ago
how about let the devs do whatever the hell they want?
Eonjay  +   447d ago
This game has been in development for years. I'm sure they are quite far into development actually.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   447d ago
So I can expect some connections to Etro, Bhunivelze, L'cie gods, fate etc... granted we don't know how big a role they will play. The trailer made it look like another war over Crystals
e-p-ayeaH  +   447d ago
Just gives us a release date.
LAWSON72  +   447d ago
E3 better give a date because I have been waiting long enough
Nate-Dog  +   447d ago
"Quite" far? It's been almost 8 years, is it being "quite" far into development supposed to reassure us?
king3  +   444d ago
So, this is just an observation that I had while I was watching all the FF-XV trailers, but if you pay attention to the HP (health points) of the characters throughout different trailers, you can see that they go from low 700, to mid 2000, to mid 6000...to me this is like a progress timeline (how far into development the game is), I say this because in my past experience playing FF games (FF-7, FF-8, FF-9, FF-10, FF-12), I know that at the beginning of the game most of my characters had low HP (around 700), towards the middle of the game they had mid HP (around 2000), and towards the end of the game they had high HP (around 6000). So, based on this, I would say that this game is really close to being finished, which is supported by this article. I would guess that we may see this game by the end of 2014, beginning of 2015. This is just my observation and opinion, what do you think?
