Earlier this week, we got a hot tip from a trusted and reliable source and broke the story that Final Fantasy XV has been delayed to November 29th. Later, we were able to acquire an image showing GameStop employees how to change the date on promotional materials. Naturally, the report was met with a lot of skepticism, but official confirmation from Square Enix arrived today.
In a special message to fans, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata announced that the long-awaited upcoming RPG has indeed been delayed until November 29th. The delay is taking place in order to “deliver a Final Fantasy of the highest possible quality to every single person who buys the game,” giving Tabata and his team two more months to add some polish. The “master version” of the game is already complete, but Tabata feels that the game has not yet reached the quality standard that he’s aiming for. Thanks to the extra time, Final Fantasy XV will launch with all of the content that was originally going to be added in with a day one patch, as well as some additional content.
