On New Years Day, Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata released a heartfelt message on the official Square Enix blog promising that the latest entry in the series will launch later this year. The full message is conveniently embedded below for all of you to check out:
We will finally release FFXV this year, in 2016! In development, previous phases required wisdom and strength. However, moving forward the final phase will focus on effort and willpower.
I vow to you all that every member in the team will do their best to the very last possible moment taking responsibility and pride in their craft.
We will do everything we can do to finish FFXV to create an experience we are incredibly proud of and one that you will enjoy and treasure.
The whole FFXV team appreciates all of the support from each and everyone one of you this past year.
I cannot tell you how much it means to all of us.
We’d like to celebrate a wonderful New Year and as we approach the release of FFXV, I’d like to enjoy that moment with you all.
This confirmation of the game’s impending release isn’t shocking mainly because the title has been in development for so long. Kingdom Hearts III, and Final Fantasy VII Remake are also deep in development now but there is currently no timetable on when they will release. Perhaps we will find out more about Final Fantasy XV during PAX South later this month.
Are any of you looking forward to playing Final Fantasy XV when it launches later this year? Do you have any thoughts on when we might get release dates for both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake?
