Square Enix’s forthcoming epic action RPG, Final Fantasy XV, has been confirmed for a 2016 release. In a blog post entitled “Happy New Year!”, FFXV director Hajime Tabata announced that the game will hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this year.
“We will finally release FFXV this year, in 2016! In development, previous phases required wisdom and strength. However, moving forward the final phase will focus on effort and willpower.
I vow to you all that every member in the team will do their best to the very last possible moment taking responsibility and pride in their craft.
We will do everything we can do to finish FFXV to create an experience we are incredibly proud of and one that you will enjoy and treasure.
The whole FFXV team appreciates all of the support from each and everyone one of you this past year. I cannot tell you how much it means to all of us.
We’d like to celebrate a wonderful New Year and as we approach the release of FFXV, I’d like to enjoy that moment with you all.”
Tabata, joined by global marketing manager Akio Ofuji, will be revealing further details of FFXV in the next Active Time Report video, expected at the end of this month.
