Final Fantasy XV Delayed Two Months

Final Fantasy fans: thought you’d be sitting down September 30 to finally play the fifteenth installment of the RPG franchise?

Think again.

Final Fantasy XV has been delayed two months to November 29, says director Hajime Tabata.

The reason, explains Tabata in a video posted to YouTube today, is that the completed version of the game just wasn’t up to snuff. Instead of releasing a downloadable day-one patch, the team has decided to simply delay the game, printing the mo’ betta’ version directly to disc.

In better news, Tabata also announced a 30-minute gameplay video is due out August 16. So… there’s that.

The theatrical and digital releases of the film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, August 19 and August 30, respectively, seem to be unaffected, so see how many times you can watch that before November 29.
