During an interview with Famitsu this week, Tabata revealed that they are currently working with Avalanche Studios on using technology from their game Just Cause 3 in Final Fantasy XV in hopes to allow full-scale flight for airships. Though they can’t guarantee the results of this collaboration will make it in time for the game’s release, they hope that fans can experience flying around the world at a later date via downloadable content.
Tabata: We’re talking to their central technology team based in Stockholm in Sweden about a certain collaboration we might do with them and the Final Fantasy XV team. We’ve got really great hopes for this discussion. What we’re going to be talking about is possibly being able to use their really unique, really high level amazing technology they have in their studio and using it as an add-on to enhance the quality of a certain specific part of our Final Fantasy XV game, We really think something very special may be coming out of that.
Tabata is very optimistic about this collaboration with Avalanche studios and hopes that fans will not have to wait too long for airship flight in Final Fantasy XV. The game is targeted to release before 2017 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
