Final Fantasy XV Has Officially Delayed to 29th November 2016 Worldwide
Game Needs More Time Polishing
FFXV Game Director, Hajime Tabata, today posted an announcement on YouTube that Final Fantasy XV which set to launch on 30th September delayed to 29th November 2016 to further polish the game before hitting the shelves.
The Master version (or Gold version) has been completed, however, it wasn't up to snuff as explained by the Tabata:
"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 15 to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding."
Tabata further explained the reason for the delay is to avoid "Day One Patch" in which, would be a mistake to delivery the current master version and wounding regrettting later. Players would be able to play the game in the best state out of the box, so no "Day One Patch" is needed. Any further improvement & DLC extras will be put in the patch in the future.
