Director Hajime Tabata addresses poor Gamescom showing and assures fans of progress.
Following a lukewarm presentation yesterday for Final Fantasy 15, director Hajime Tabata told GameSpot that the action RPG will be out before 2017.
With regards to plans of revealing the release date, Tabata said, “At the very least, I can tell you that it isn’t going to be released this year. I think we’ll be able to tell you when we’re making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month.”
Tabata also addressed the lackluster showing at Gamescom and stated that, “I understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media. We really do get the feeling that people are a bit worried. Certainly, one thing I would like to say to them to reassure them, is that we’ve set down the release date, we know when it is, and we’ve got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we’re proceeding along that as planned.
“We can certainly say to people: it’s not going to be 2017. It’s going to be before that.”
Final Fantasy 15 in 2016, perhaps by year end? We’ll find out by PAX Prime so stay tuned.
