Bad news gaming fans! It seems that Final Fantasy XV will be delayed yet again.
Final Fantasy XV was not present in this week’s E3 2014 along with Kingdom Hearts 3 as Famitsu reports that Square Enix game producer Shinji Hashimoto has debunked previous reports regarding Final Fantasy XV appearance at the event.
“There was a misunderstanding in the reporting of that, a number of stories were accidently mixed into one.”
“When I was asked about FFXV’s presence at E3, the answer I gave was that ‘I can’t answer yet.’ But somehow what I had said was framed in a different context when it was reported.”
Square Enix was still in the development phase, but Hashimoto claimed that Square Enix is taking all the available time and resources to improve the gameplay.
“First I’d like to say that development for FFXV is going well. Internally, we try to ascertain the best timing for revealing new information about FFXV to the fans. So when we were going over our promotion plans, we judged that this year’s E3 would not be the best time to exhibit information about FFXV.”
Meanwhile, there have been reports regarding Final Fantasy XV release date as it was changed yet again from March 2015 to mid-late 2015. Fans speculated that it was because of the PC version of FFXV that caused the delay for the console versions.
According to reports from Gear Nuke revealed that Senior Research Analyst for Square Enix, David Gibson, said that since Square Enix are expecting lower game sales compared to last year, this could perhaps imply that Final Fantasy XV won’t be released for this fiscal year ending March 2015.
Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda stated that the game is made with Direct X 11 tools as they confirmed that FFXV will be on the PC. Hashimoto added that he installed new software details in hopes of making the game look better. “We haven’t decided when, but we’re currently preparing new information that may meet everyone’s expectations. Please wait for a little while longer.”
