Unfortunately, the title is no joke. Yes, Square Enix have pushed back the release of Final Fantasy XV until November 29th.
The reasoning for the delay is to allow the tea m time to further polish and conduct quality testing so that the reality of the game can match the expectations of both the fans and the creative teams. Hajime Tabata, Game Director stated:
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.
Take a look at a video message from Mr Tabata himself and let us know what you think in the comment section below. I’m off to punch a wall……
