Final Fantasy XV Will Receive More Content in 2018

Final Fantasy XV's road trip won't end with Episode Ignis in 2017, but will continue in 2018 with more content developed for the main game.

September 23, 2017

Today, during the Active Time Report broadcast from Tokyo Game Show, Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata revealed that support for the game isn’t going to end in 2017 as originally planned.

Square Enix initially announced that Final Fantasy XV would receive DLC for this year according to the Season Pass plan, culminating with Episode Ignis in December. Yet Tabata-san revealed that the plans have changed, and now the team will create more content in 2018.

Tabata-san did not provide further detail on the nature of the content, nor whether it’ll include paid DLC, free updates or both. That said, it certainly bodes well for those who wanted to see the game further expanded.

It’s worth mentioning that he was talking about the main game and not the Comrades expansion (that will be released on October 31st), which was featured in its own segment earlier today. A trailer released earlier this week mentioned a “free update” with additional story content, but we don’t know if this is part of the new plans for 2018.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One, and will release for PC in early 2018. If you want to know more, you should not forget to read our recent interview with Director Hajime Tabata.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
