Final Fantasy 15 Delayed to End of November - Reports

You'll have to wait a little while longer to play the RPG, apparently.

352 Comments

[UPDATE] Following the initial reports, Kotaku now has heard from a "number of sources" that Final Fantasy XV is delayed. Additionally, Gamnesia has posted a picture of marketing materials that show the rumored November 29 release date. Kotaku says it has also seen other marketing materials apparently referencing a delay. The GameStop signage will reportedly go up on Monday, August 15, so the delay announcement should come very soon, it seems.

Square Enix has not responded to a request for comment.

The original story is below.

Multiple reports are claiming Square Enix's long-in-development RPG Final Fantasy XV has been delayed to November 29. A source at GameStop told Gamnesia that the game is now coming on November 29.

"Promotional materials with the new date have arrived at some GameStop stores with instructions that they are not to be put up until after Sunday, August 14th, so an official announcement could be coming then," the report said.

Additionally, Gematsu, which accurately reported Final Fantasy XV's September 30 release date before it was announced, has heard from a source that Gamnesia's report is accurate. The site's source is apparently the same one who tipped them off to the September 30 release date.

GameSpot has contacted Square Enix in an attempt to get more details.

The GameStop website still lists the Final Fantasy XV release date as September 30. Additionally, the Gamnesia report didn't include images of the reported marketing materials. For now, take this with a grain of salt. If the report is accurate, we should know one way or the other soon.

Final Fantasy XV will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while Square Enix is "thinking about a PC version." If the RPG does come to PC, fans should not expect this version to launch alongside the console editions in September, if it happens at all.

Well now it will release almost simultaneously as KH 2.8 http://www.gamespot.com/kingdom-hearts-hd-28-final-chapter-prologue/. Both games are also said to be massive.

The reason why they are doing this is because Sony wants them to really make it look amazing on Neo :-P

Leave it up to Square Enix to announce DLC packs for a game that keeps getting delayed lol. The game will be another FF13/2 but with a better engine and emo kids and will be a huge let down.

Like most ex FF fans I'm not expecting great things. It looks like Square-Enix don't know where to take the franchise, instead throwing this weird collage of ideas together. Hopefully it will at least be better than the abomination that was FF13 and its follow-up.

I would be disappointed, but not surprised, if the game was delayed again. But it won't kill me to wait a bit longer... so long as it's not another delay after that, and then another, and then another...

this info is completely false and maybe if people like Eddie and gamespot would learn to do actual reporting for once instead of copying and pasting another article on another site and just spreading the same false rumor over and over..........you actually might look less like fools

is that too much to say? will it get removed for saying that? Seriously. maybe if you spend less time "moderating" comments and more time actually oh i dont know posting news that is actual news and actual reporting...........things would seem better around here.

@almatha: i've been kinda laughing since the announcement, i mean it's okay to defend the delay and all, but when you plain say "no it's impossible, you are all fools, a random guy cant know more than bandai, or all those stores with new merchadise that says september 30th." you know it's pretty fun for those that kept open mind about this not just rambling why it had to be fake when the sources were reliable for other rumors that also came true.... so sorry for the fans it gotta sting...

It doesn't bother me really, I still have other games I have yet to play and what I saw from the gemplay of one of the demos it needs more time to be polished.

Good, more time to finish other games, more time for them to finish the game.

Sick of the rushed out, unfinished games that are becoming commonplace.

Meh, I'm not really a FF fan so no big deal for me. I'll probably pick this up just b/c it looks like it might be a decent game but it's not one of those games I've just been waiting and waiting to play.

This is good news but not great for those who can't wait anymore. The good news because the framerate was pretty spotty during the E3 live demo. They need more time to polish it and I am glad for that. Make it as good as it can be, no 2GB day one patch.

Go ahead. Not like I was excited in any way about this game. It'll be a miracle if it's good.

@7tizz: I love JRPGs. I don't like bad JRPGs, which is what Final Fantasy has been for the last 8 years. But you don't even know how to tell good games from bad, so why would you even care? Also if you think I'm getting this for Playstation you must not know much.

@7tizz: "Not a gamer"

Hhahahahahahahah oh christ 7tizz you have made some stupid comments over the years but I don't think you can get much dumber than the post you just made.

By the way, this game does have a really bad demo. You'd know if you paid attention to anything that wasn't Xbosh exclusive.

@stage4saiyan: If by great you mean "panned across the internet so much Square had to respond and promise they would change the crappy battle system" then yeah. I don't think that's what you meant though, so I question your authenticity.

@7tizz: So hold on. You don't recognize my name yet in your first post accused me of being a Sony fan boy.

Hypocrite or liar? Or does 7tizz really just assume everyone in the world besides him is a Sony fan boy. It's shocking that that might actually be the most likely reason.

im starting to think this whole thing is a giant hoax.........there is ONE image. ONE image that has been suggested its photoshopped floating around by everyone. ..........we have no real proof. Kotaku suggests they have seen "other media" about it. BUT only from ONE guy saying so..........i hope we are all proven wrong tommorow when its shown it was a bunch of bs

i will say this. MR JOn is going to get a very long email from me if its proven to be a bunch of bs.
