The game director of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV has finally revealed a release window for the game, hinting at when fans can expect to play the next instalment in the series.
Speaking to Gamespot about when Square Enix plans to release the game, director Hajime Tabata replied “At the very least, 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 at PAX Prime, at the end of this month.”
However when pressed on reassuring fans about the quality of the game after such a long development process, Tabata said “I can understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media. We really do get the feeling that people are a bit worried.”
“Certainly, one thing I would like to say to them to reassure them, is that we’e 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” Tabata continued.
The director concluded conversing about Final Fantasy XV with this line: “We can certainly say to people: it’s not going to be 2017. It’s going to be before that.”
