A movie, an anime series, and a mobile app, as well as a demo with exclusive features not in the main game if you don't play it. Looks like they're really milking this property.

If they're betting big on FFXV, it gives me a feeling that in 2 years time we will see FFXV-2, and Noctis Returns: FFXV, 2 years after that.

@lostn: How is this milking? At least the anime series and demo are not locked behind a preorder. There's nothing wrong with fleshing out the world and using THAT to hype the game. This is how they used to get people excited about a game.

And no one's forcing you to buy the movie. Hell, even the mobile app is free.

@Bread_or_Decide: I never said there was anything wrong with them doing so.

But they're definitely betting really big on this property, and that leads me to believe there is more coming. Either DLC side adventures or two sequels or more. No one invests this much into something and leaves it at that. Is it wrong to make sequels and DLC to this game? No. But it would disappoint me that their team is locked to this XV sub-franchise and unable to move onto the next new thing which is what I'd rather see next.

As for the mobile app being free.. nothing is ever truly free. I suspect it will have in app purchases. Or ads. Or lockouts / daily limits to what you can do unless you pay.

@lostn: So they spent god knows how many years and man hours on this game and you're already wanting the next thing? XVI? It's nice to see a company committed to their game release with the least amount of preorder nonsense I've seen in awhile.

@Bread_or_Decide: 1. I didn't say I want it now. I only want them to start working on it next, instead of waiting for 2 more sequels before starting on it.

2. The preorder nonsense hasn't begun yet. It will. You can rest assured of that. Gamestop will have an exclusive skin, Best Buy will have another. They've yet to announce those things but they will.

"There are -5 comments about this story"

That's some enthusiasm right there.

Personally, I'll check if Cindy is there, not interested in the brofest.
