Square Enix Announces Date for Final Fantasy XV Release Date Announcement - News

Yup, Square Enix has made an announcement of an announcement at PAX Prime in Seattle.

Game director Hajime Tabata announced that Final Fantasy XV's release date will be announced next March, at a special event, and that the title's release window will be in 2016.


All jesting aside, it sounds like the Pax Prime panel was fairly substantial, and featured a progress report highlight video, footage of the game's main menu screen, lots of new concept art, details on the overworld, towns, shops, gameplay, and the Regalia car that your team will use in the game.

You can find a full breakdown of the panel event over at Gematsu.

Probelm with Square Enix is they announced their game too early. At the times their games released no one is really interested anymore.

ps3-sales! (on 30 August 2015)

Ok like the game looks nice. But does anybody actually care that much for an announcement of an accouncement? I sure don't. Especially when the series hasn't been good for almost a decade.

Screamapillar (on 31 August 2015)

A date for date... That is ridiculous. That game is taking way too long

SanAndreasX (on 31 August 2015)

Yo dawg, we heard you like announcements, so we made an announcement of an announcement so you can get hyped while getting hyped.

Angelv577 (on 30 August 2015)

If they aren't ready to announce it now, this means they aren't sure if the game will be ready for next year.

KingdomHeartsFan (on 30 August 2015)

The funny thing is they already announced the game is coming in 2016. Games do this all the time, they announce the year of release first then the specific date after, but for some reason this is going right over peoples heads.

KingdomHeartsFan (on 30 August 2015)

Love that my comment is getting downvoted, shows the SE haters on this site. The only difference between this and other games is SE said when they are gonna announce the games release date, everything else is the exact same.

SE has just gone full retard (IMO).

binary solo (on 30 August 2015)

They are announcing an announcement 7 months before the announcement will happen?!? Jeez I hope they mean to announce end of 2016 launch date, because it would be completely ridiculous for them to announce and announcement in 2015 for a game that will be released in 2017.

KingdomHeartsFan (on 30 August 2015)

Did you read the article? They already announced the game is coming out in 2016.
