One of the most hyped games of the year, “Final Fantasy XV,” has been pushed back from its global release by two months.
Originally slated for release on September 30th where it would be one of the first game titles of this year’s always busy Fall launch window, it now looks like it will be one of the last with the new date slated to be a post-Thanksgiving slot of November 29th. Square Enix made the announcement today with game director Hajime Tabata issuing an official apology about the last minute 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.”
The confirmation comes following a report at Gamenesia that retailers were receiving notices from Square Enix on how to replace the dates for Final Fantasy XV. It also follows in the wake of rumors that the game still needed some technical tweaking which they now have an additional two months to work on.
