Final Fantasy XV Director, Hajime Tabata, confirmed to Gamespot earlier today at Gamescom that the game will be released sometime in 2016.
When they asked about a specific release date, 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 around PAX Prime, at the end of this month.”
Gamespot also asked Tabata about how they plan on keeping fans excited about the game since it has been in development for some time now. Tabata said..
“I understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media,” he said. “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’ve 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.”
