Gamespot: Square Enix Will Release Final Fantasy XV in 2016

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Video game news website Gamespot reported on Thursday that Final Fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata has confirmed with the site that Square Enix will release the game in 2016.

Tabata told the website, "...I can tell you that it isn't going to be released this year. I think we'll be able to tell you when we're making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month." Tabata then added, "We can certainly say to people: it's not going to be 2017. It's going to be before that."

Tabata also told Gamespot, "...we've set down the release date, we know when it is, and we've got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we're proceeding along that as planned."

Square Enix streamed a "Dawn" trailer for the PlayStation 4/Xbox One game on Wednesday.

Square Enix originally announced Final Fantasy XV as Final Fantasy Versus XIII in 2006, until Square Enix changed its name in 2013. Tetsuya Nomura originally helmed the project, until Hajime Tabata (Final Fantasy Type-0) replaced him last September. Square Enix released a playable demo of the game titled Final Fantasy XV -Episode Duscae- bundled with the collector's edition of Square Enix's Final Fantasy Type-0 HD PS4/Xbox One game in March. The company updated the demo in June.
