Square Enix and Final fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata announced today that Final Fantasy XV will not be released until November 29. Essentially citing that the game is not at the level of quality and polish they want it, Tabata-san gave the following statement:
“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.”
Game Director, Final Fantasy XV
