Now Playing: GS News Update: Final Fantasy XV Release Date!

Final Fantasy 15 was first announced back in 2006 as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, one of the numerous titles included in the Fabula Nova Crystallis series. Although a few games in the mini-universe have been released, such as the Final Fantasy 13 games, Versus went through a period of troubled development.

After going quiet for a few years, Square Enix eventually re-introduced Versus XIII as Final Fantasy 15 at E3 2013. The project had evolved significantly and thus become a core, numbered entry in the series.

Final Fantasy 15 will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Although there hasn't been an official announcement of a PC version, references to Steam and Windows 10 versions have been found.

Recently, Square Enix has released a number of Final Fantasy games for the PC, including Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Final Fantasy 13, Final Fantasy 13-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13.
