the game actually didnt go into full production until late 2011, most of the FFXV team was helping make FFXIII-2 and FFXIV

"important phase"

would means they've totally bid farewell to PS3 cell architecture and fully moved on to PS4 HSA architecture.

Greatness Awaits!

It sounds and looks very promising indeed.
Can't wait to get this game and play the hell out of it.

I have a strong feeling this is the Final Fantasy everyone hoped XIII should have been.

Your words mean nothing without proof SE.

I agree. More meaningless "update" on the game that actually tells nothing. We have heard things like "the game has gone into full development" before and they still have nothing to show for it. The game should be nearing completion instead of "breaking in to important phase!" I am tired of waiting! >_<

to be fair to Square Enix, since they re-revealed it as Final Fantasy XV we've been getting tons of updates on a very regular basis like every game should. so that's a definite sign that it will be releasing sooner rather than later.

during the Versus XIII days we'd go more than a year without a single update. at one point I remember it was about 18 months without an update.

Tons of updates? It's nothing even near tons of updates and it hasn't actually been any different to the usual gap between news and footage. We received one set of footage last E3 (gameplay with story and narration over it, and then relatively uncut gameplay in the same area). Since then (within the first few weeks after E3) Nomura released tidbits of information and that's what he did before, but since then we've had more or less nothing. Nothing has changed at all. If we get new footage at this E3, then sure things have changed since we haven't had 2 different bits of footage released within a year before, but the "the time of having no information about Versus / XV is over" claim by Square was rubbish and still is until, at the very least, E3.

"Breaking into important phase..."

In short, this article is telling us they're working on it and we have to wait....

It's funny how after more than 7 years, we still get vague information like "important phase". What does that even mean?

I can't believe Square Enix just can't get this game done! They prioritize so many things instead of focusing on one thing at a time to have shorter development times. By the time Final Fantasy XV either the expectation will be so high that it's going to fail, or people will just be uninterested.

I just can't see the game do as good as it would have, had it launched 5 years ago, as it should have.

You are understating the years man. NINE YEARS since the game was revealed in 2005! Whole 9 YEARS and the game is still nowhere near completion!
Adrian_  +   117d ago
You guys are aware that it hasn't been in development for 9 years?
Gore-Content  +   117d ago
It better be! Remember, this was supposed to come out for the PS3, lmao!

Hope the game releases before i die.

Ah I remember when the first trailer came out. I was sweet 16 just taking my final school exams...now I'm a 24 year old! how time flies...

They should rename this to Final Fantasy XV: Forever.
Agent_hitman  +   117d ago
Oh no!, not this crap again. We've been waiting for this game since 2006. Why not just announce the release date?
Furesis  +   117d ago
i think they should because then they would have actual pressure which would make them work and then maybe it would get done lol
rlacorne  +   117d ago
This has better be sky-high good. If it's just alright, I fear that some part of the fanbase will go full whine and bash mode...
elda  +   117d ago
Was hoping for a western release of spring 2015,now it seems though this game may not release in the states till late 2015 or spring 2016...this is crazy!..I'm tired of waiting!

I'm honestly curious about when they ACTUALLY started development on this game. No way could they have been working on it for 8 years and are only getting the engine done now.
