"Sorry for lying."

Back in April, Square Enix confirmed Final Fantasy XV would skip E3 for Gamescom, but the developer was still hoping to release a short trailer at the June event in Los Angeles.

Now, those plans have been scrapped entirely.

"After internal discussions, we decided not to create an E3 trailer," Square Enix marketing manager Akio Ofuj said during a livetsream today. "Sorry for lying."

"It's unfortunate," Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata added. "We said we'd have something at E3, and there's nothing."

You're not missing much, however, as Ofuji said this trailer was going to contain old footage that would serve more as a segue of sorts for a bigger reveal at Gamescom.

Looking ahead to Gamescom in August, Ofuji teased that Square Enix is planning to show off "new, never-before-seen" gameplay footage during the event, which runs August 5-9 in Germany. In addition, Tabata shared the piece of concept art you can see below. He says it's related to some kind of announcement Square Enix is planning to make at the event.

In other Final Fantasy XV news, Square Enix has announced the release date for Episode Duscae 2.0, the updated version of the RPG's demo for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
