Director finally provides fans a window for eagerly anticipated RPG.
I figured it would be 2016. Was hoping for a 2015 release, but they do need time to polish and bug check things. Without all that, I could see them finishing by the end of the year.
bad news for KH3 then
Report: Final Fantasy 15 Release Date Confirmed for 2016...until next delay. i dont believe it will make it next year.
these are good news ..i was sure that it will be released in 2017
Yesterday, I've read somewhere that the game was 65% completed. Its been what, 9 years in development? That means it takes them 1 year to create 7.2% of the game, so far. Which means they still need 4.8 years to complete it at this rate! Jokes ^^^ aside, this game turned form a ps3 exclusive to a multiplatform game, taking forever to make/port in the process so they better deliver the best FF game ever(ok maybe as good as FF7).
I still think that it's coming out next gen... You know, when the ps5 releases....
10 years since FFVS13 announcement, just makes sense.
you were expecting a 2015 release in august? :|
Good news especially for those worried they wouldn't reach 100% in 2016.
Yessss! 2016 is going to be an amazing year for console gaming. Horizon Zero Dawm Uncharted 4 Final Fantasy XV Gears of War 4 Quantum Break Scalebound and, correct me if I'm wrong I guess the new Zelda game is set to release in 2016 as well right? Man that makes me jealous. Game journalist is kinda the best job in the world. I mean, I wouldn't have had the time to play all this awesomeness myself. :)
add TLG and DS3 to the list :)
Zelda's date is officially TBA, 2016 might be worst year for WiiU.
@spacedelete Why comment? No one cares about your opinion.
Final fantasy xv is multiplatform.
FF15 release date is when Ill be buying PS4 (unless they announce PC version before that.)
We will see
Well that was obvious but kinda throwing off my prediction they were gonna push FF7remake for the 20th anniversary... Unless they release it in Q1 or 2 and Kingdom Hearts for the holidays. I just want to know about Persona 5 now. Is that still on track for 2015 or is that getting a push back as well.
Persona 5 release date tba in TGS, they said in twitter. Hopefully its dec 2015.
I fear that FF15, FF7Re and KH3 might come out too close to each other.
They would sell anyway. FF15 2016 FF7 2017 for 20th Anniversary KH3 2018
Lol chaos are you insane?! 2018 for kingdom hearts? You realize how much of that game is done right? They even said they have an internal release date. I can promise after the interviews they've given the release date will be announced next e3.
Expect KH3 to be done before FF7 and don't expect FF7 to be out for the anniversary. I still can't believe how many people forget that the two games share the same director and KH3 is way further along (perhaps as much as 30% done). They also forget that a simple FFX remaster took them like three years. Like a remake of one of their most popular gems is going to take about two...it's just not feasible.
Persona 5 will be released in Japan first by the looks of things and much later in the west.
I'm starting to think so too or perhaps a global delay into 2016. The fact that you can't even pre-order it and that there's been no word concerns me.
Oh thank god !
I expected this anyway, no way we would be getting so little info at this stage in the year otherwise. Tokyo game show, ea and maybe even next years gamescon for more major info. If its strong at TGS, like gameplay blowout.... I reckon an early 2016 release is possible, but I bet its more like Q4!
If they don't give the release date at TGS I will be a bit worried. It's basically the only other great show to promote this game before next E3 or VGA
I do not believe that for a second. The game needs 40% of the game completed, and a worldwide release would be a 3 month difference. No way unless they rush the hell out of this. Square needs to get its act together, first they do not say anything about the date, fans trash the hell of what they showed for the game, and now they are backpedalling. 10 years of dev for this game
*35% , msot of the world map is 70-80% complete so a big part of those 35% may be cutscenes and optimisation .
After 10 years of dev you are seriously believing Square when it comes to there timetable?
FF XV is clearly not 10 years of dev .
They said the game is 65% complete but from now on the scenario is complete. They just have to program it, the whole game is on paper. Should be smooth work
Remember that Drive Club was like 60% done maybe half a year before release lol. The hardest part is the foundation and engine establishment. After about 50% things start going quicker.
What do you mean 10 years? They restarted development of the game on 2012. This is not a port of Versus 13, it's a completely new game made from scratch. The only assets they transferred from Versus are the Character designs, concepts and such. Coding, character models, graphics engine, pretty much everything that makes a game were all made anew.
Finally, thank you square that all we wanted. An estimated release window.
Yeah, better than not answering at all. a frame window is enough
This is good news. I'm liking all the FF news from SE lately! Good seeing them put a lot of effort and attention into the franchise that made them what they are today.
Can't Wait !
Possibly late 2016..I'm still guessing early 2017..we'll see.
Square has good fans. They believe any lie they tell at face value. "Update: We caught up with Final Fantasy director Hajime Tabata this morning to clarify the release window for Final Fantasy XV. The director had more information for us, giving us hope for the full game next year. Earlier today, Gamespot reported that Tabata confirmed a 2016 release. When we checked in, Tabata said that Final Fantasy XV definitely will not be released this year. He would also be quite disappointed if it released as late as 2017. A Square Enix representative told us that more specific release details will be coming soon, as we reported yesterday in the original story below. The company would not confirm that the game will be released in 2016 or, to directly address what Tabata said to Gamespot, that it won't slip to 2017." 2016 was NOT confirmed
Tabata said it will launch before 2017, what other proof You need?
He never said that. And since when is Tabata reliable?
@RP More reliable than some random poster on this website.
They said they are not sure about 2016. That is the last official statement. Use fact.
+50% chance of being delayed and that 2016 for japan only
Think it was confirmed for a world wide release.
I'm not surprised. I hope it actually comes out in 2016 though.
"Next Final Fantasy 15 delay announcement confirmed for 2016."
Love your Cinco Face Time Party Snoozer...LOL!
Thanks for coming.
Damage Control after that 65% story got fans pissed.
I would love to game test this game Anyone know where i can become a game tester in California?! Btw i know the game testing phase of this game will take place in Japan
Yeah. One just applies at the website. Get an interview. Like any other corporation really. They don't pay much and it isn't fun. Good luck!
Phew... FINALLY Tabata dropped the best indication of the Final Fantasy XV release date yet: "We can certainly say to people: it's not going to be 2017. It's going to be before that."
December 31 2016. They going to milk all of 2016.
HIGH FIVE EVERYONE!!
nurboyxvi.deviantart March 15th 2016 or May 17th 2016
Well then let's see: FF15-2016 FF7-2017 for 20th anniversary (maybe) FF16-2018??? (Wishfully)
