Square Enix Hints at Possible Summer 2016 Release for Final Fantasy XV

We’ve recently learned (via Games Talk) that Square Enix might be considering a Summer 2016 release for the highly anticipated Final Fantasy XV.

This comes in the form of a questionnaire that went live on their website, asking fans which would they purchase between Persona 5 or Final Fantasy XV  if they were to come out at the same time.

Persona 5 as you may recall is also slated for a Summer 2016 release, so if interest is high enough it could lead to a Summer 2016 release for Final Fantasy XV as well.

We’ll keep you guys posted.

    So basically Persona 5 vs FF: Boy Band Edition. Persona 5 all the way.

    I’ll take whichever makes it to PC first. Never compromise.

    Why not both? Oh yeah because i’m poor

    FF 15 probably, my backlog is already full to bursting with turn based games so i’d like something a bit different

    Persona 5 doesn’t look like it’s shaking up the formula enough. P4 and 3 were kinda boring to play so I’m definitely going to gravitate towards the more experimental title.

    Haha, 2016. Ambitious as fuck. Pessimistically speaking I’d say 2020.

    Of course I know FFXV will come first, Square-Enix seems to have embraced Steam rather well, and NG did just have an article about the Beta stages of the game running on PC.

    However, seeing as it’s 3rd party, and Atlus is now owned by SEGA, I’m actually pretty sure P5 will have an eventual PC release as well. …PC has been picking up JP developer/publisher support like crazy lately. I can only hope the trend continues.

    If it doesn’t, that’s fine too, I do have a PS4. I’d just prefer to play it on more powerful hardware and in my preferred ecosystem. (Steam.)

    I want both but if I had to choose it would be P5. I love the megaten series and the persona series is one of my favorite sub sets of it.

    If I was backed into a corner, Megaten all the way HOWEVER them FF boys be fine, so I’d like both ideally.

    I’m more interested in XV because I really like what I played from the demo. Felt more like Xenoblade, but I’m fine with that.
