Final Fantasy XV Game to Continue Development With New Content Into 2018
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Square Enix announced at Tokyo Game Show 2017 on Saturday that it will continue to "enhance the story" of its Final Fantasy XV game with new content into next year. The game had held a survey in May-June asking fans what kind of content they would like to be added to the game, including story content, more playable characters, and upgrades.
Square Enix also outlined the game's upcoming enhancements at the event on Saturday. The game's multiplayer expansion "Comrades" will launch on October 31, taking place during the original game's 10-year timeskip near the end of the story. Nobuo Uematsu composed a theme song for the expansion titled "Choosing Hope." Emiko Suzuki performs the song.
Other upcoming franchise releases include the Monster of the Deep PS VR game on November 21, the smartphone "Pocket Edition" of the game this fall, the "Episode Ignis" DLC in December, and the game's Windows release next year.
Hajime Tabata, the game's director, said earlier this month that the game has "achieved over 6.5 million units" worldwide. Tabata didn't specify if the number is combined digital sales and shipments (as with previous milestone announcements for the game) or another metric.
Final Fantasy XV went on sale worldwide for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last November.
