Final Fantasy XV’s Release Date Might be Later than You Hoped For

It seems like we’ll be getting a release date for Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV, although it still might be a ways off.

In an interview with GameKult at Paris Games Week, game director Hajime Tabata discussed the development of the massive project:

“The number of developers on the project is actually a serious issue. We’re going to need a little more manpower as we start working towards the master build, so we’ve started recruiting more developers.”

While that has probably crushed whatever is remaining of your hopes and dreams, Tabata did confirm that Final Fantasy XV will eventually be finished:

“However, a target in terms of which year and season the game will be released has been roughly decided.”

Sadly, he concluded by reiterating that a release for the RPG is probably still a ways off:

“It might be a little bit after what you’re probably hoping for, though.”

Final Fantasy XV is currently in development for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
