During Square Enix’s broadcast from the E3 2017 show floor in Los Angeles, Global Brand Manager Raio Mitsuno talked about the state of development of the update that will add Xbox One X support to Final Fantasy XV.

Mitsuno-san revealed that the development team at Square Enix is already working on the Xbox One X update for the game. He also clarified that the little clip we saw at the Xbox Press Briefing was actually the game running on Xbox One X.

Mizuno also mentioned that the patch adding support for the console will hopefully come out on the Xbox One X’s release day on November 3rd.

Incidentally, he then tease that there’s “a lot more” in terms of Final Fantasy XV content, but Squre Enix isn’t ready to announce it yet. We’ll hear about “a couple more things” at Gamescom in Cologne. For those unfamiliar with the show, it will run between August 22nd and August 26, and you can bet that we’ll be there ready to let you know what’s up.

You can check out in the clip from the Xbox Press Briefing Mitsuno-san is talking about at the bottom of the post. Unfortunately not much is visible, but that’s all we have for now besides two screenshots released yesterday.

Final Fantasy XV is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One. The Episode Prompto DLC will release on June 27th for both platforms, and you can watch some gameplay from that one here.
