Final Fantasy XV Delayed into November

Final Fantasy XV is no longer coming in September – the open world JRPG’s release date has been pushed into November. According to Square Enix, this was done for the sake of furter polishing and testing the game.

Fans are no doubt going to be saddened, but at least it’s delayed for a good reason.

The new release date is November 29th, which is two months away from the previous ones. It’s not too big of a delay, and it’s going to give the team more time to tighten up any loose screws and make it work as good as they can. In short, it’s in everyone’s best interest for the game to be pushed back, which is why it happened.

Square issued a press release to explain the situation, along with the video message from game director Hajime Tabata. Here’s just a fraction of what Tabata had to say about the delay:
From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this. As the director and lead of this project, I wish to personally apologize for the additional wait. As a team, we want Final Fantasy XV to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding.
It’s distressing news, but you can’t really be upset after a message like this. Let’s hope they use the time well and make the best game they can.
