Report Claims Final Fantasy XV Is On Course For Late September Release


Ten years in the making, Final Fantasy XV will finally emerge from a troubled development later in 2016 – exactly when will surely be revealed during this month’s Uncovered event.

Threatening to spoil the surprise ahead of time is a report unearthed by Gematsu, signalling that the long-awaited RPG sequel may be on course to hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30. According to the outlet, the information that surfaced was “corroborated by three independent sources,” though it’s still worth taking said rumor with a grain of salt until Square takes to the stage in two weeks’ time.

First hatched as Versus XIII all the way back in 2006, Square Enix’s sequel evolved into Final Fantasy XV once the creative team opted to tell the story within one core experience, as opposed to spilling over into sequels in the vein of Final Fantasy XIII.

All we know for now is that Final Fantasy XV is on course to release across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at some point in 2016 – it’ll feature an emotional ending, too. Expect official details to be unveiled on March 30, when Greg Miller and Tim Gettys of Kinda Funny will host Square’s official Uncovered showcase.
