Despite it not being mentioned in the latest trailer or Active Time Report, the director of Final Fantasy XV told Gamespot in a recent interview that fans can expect to play the full game before 2017, suggesting the game will be out next year.
Tabata: “We can certainly say to people: it’s not going to be 2017. It’s going to be before that.”
When asked when we can expect it.
Tabata: “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.”
When asked how they intend to to reassure the fans about their project.
Tabata: “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.”
