It’s confirmed. After many leaks about a release date, Square Enix has confirmed that the upcoming Final Fantasy XV has been pushed back to a November 29th, 2016 release date. The delay will allow the development team to further polish and conduct quality testing for the game to match expectations of both fans and the creative team.

“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,” said Hajime Tabata the game director.

“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.”
