Eurogamer: Final Fantasy XV release date narrowed to 2016

August 6th, 2015 by Arielle


After yesterday’s underwhelming Active Time Report on Final Fantasy XV at Gamescom 2015, Eurogamer was able to interview director Hajime Tabata where he revealed that the game will be coming out in 2016.

In the interview, Tabata apologized for the lack of information revealed yesterday and the unsatisfied responses from fans. “We looked at the reactions to yesterday’s ATR, and we understand that people expected a big information update at Gamescom, and we do understand that we really disappointed people, and we’re really regretful about that.” He also noted that there was a huge gap in the expectations fans had for their Gamescom marketing for Final Fantasy XV and their perceptions of what those expectations were.

Tabata reassured that fan will not be waiting until 2017 to play Final Fantasy XV, and a 2016 release date has always been in line with their plans for the game and those plans have not changed much since moving development from Final Fantasy Versus XIII.

“Development’s going well since I’ve taken over as director,” he told Eurogamer. “It’s all on schedule! One thing I wasn’t expecting was the backlash from the people who’d followed the game from early on, and its first version. The negative reaction was quite surprising.”

Eurogamer also asked Tabata about potential sequels, to which Tabata said that they want to make the main game as complete experience on its own but that they do have contingency plans and various possibilities in place if there is any demands for more. Tabata also notes that “it’d be good to have younger development talent opportunities to take on those projects.”

    How many times does SE have to keep apologizing for this game? Lol. Disparity in expectations of gamescom. I get it, but cmon that trailer is….dumb

  • Jerry Flowers

    People had unsupported expectations about this specific event, we got a sweet new trailer. Calm down and just have some patients, Tabata-San shouldn’t have to fear the internet going rouge every time and event comes up.

  • Daniel Masterson

    Wait there was a sweet new trailer? I must have missed it. You got any links?

  • Miqote

    Sweet new trailer? I sure as hell didn’t see one. Did anyone else?
