Many fans got a chance to take part of demos and trailers of Final Fantasy XV that were being released bit by bit, and even though the story has been changed drastically (by way of removing one particular princess out of the storyline), many gamers are still ecstatic about the title’s launch. The game’s official release date is scheduled to be announced officially in an event on March 30th of this year. However, there are reports that the release date has already been revealed quite early. A report told by Gematsu that the game will arrive for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 30th of September of this year.
Final Fantasy XV Might Already Have a Release Date
The information from the aforementioned source of the release date for Final Fantasy XV has been backed up by three other independent sources around the Internet. Gematsu stated in the post that these sources “would have knowledge of the matter.” Of course, many would still like to take this knowledge as a grain of salt until Square Enix officially announces the date on the March 30 event in Los Angeles.
“Our sources in this case are reliable,” Gematsu stated. “However, given the sensitivity of the matter, and that within a company setting anything can change before it is made public, we’re reporting this as a rumor until the release date is officially announced.”
There was a report that was made the previous year from a Square Enix survey that suggested that the known gaming company was considering the launch of Final Fantasy 15 to be on summer of this year. If it were to be released on the 30th of September, then it is just a few days before fall season would arrive. This may be a good marketing move for the firm as it would come before the annual rush of big holiday game titles. This would then allow the game to stand out more.
It has already been a very, very long time for the coming of Final Fantasy XV. The game was originally announced as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and there was even a trailer for it. However, after much time passed, it was renamed to the Final Fantasy title we know today. One of the reasons for the shift is due to the development getting caught up with the shift in generation of consoles. From the game’s main concept, to the design of the world inhabited by Noctis and his pals, and the entire story were mostly kept intact during the transition, but there were some changes thrown in to accommodate the newer-generation console.
