What an odd, useless article. Everyone knows why FFXV had narrative issues: it was cobbled together in the 11th hour after a decade of development woes. XVI has already overcome this issue because it's had one director at the helm, its development has been incredibly focused, and it's also coming out relatively quickly after it's announcement.

What a complete disaster of an article. FFXV and FFXVI has nothing to do with each other. On the other hand, FFXVI has everything to do with FFXIV which had the best Final Fantasy story in decades. Go and do some background research before writing up random stuff!

Yoshi P is probably the best director at square enix atm. I have no doubts it will have the most competent story to tell and if you've played shadowbringers and my personal favorite heavensward you know you're in for a treat. Heavensward pulled on my heart strings but shadowbringers showed they can tell a fleshed out story line.
