Final Fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata mentioned during an interview with the French site Gamekult that Square Enix has already set a release window for the game, but it could be later than people expect.
The progress of Final Fantasy XV is going very well. For now we managed to release the debut trailer at Tokyo Game Show and the reception has been extraordinaire and the morale of the team is great. Everyone is working very hard on the development.
Regarding the question of whether we have enough members in the team, it is a concern that we have to answer ourselves at this time, because the more we move towards the final version, the more we have to produce huge amounts of content, we are really in a phase of mass production.
To do this, we need more people to help us, so we are in recruiting in full force to strengthen the team. We are trying to find the right people to lead the development to completion.
I can not give the exact date, but I can tell you that the target release window and year in which it will be launched have already been set. We are working to release the game on time, but it might take a little more time than you expect.
I’m sure many will consider me crazy, given how long we’ve waited for Final Fantasy Versus XIII first and then Final Fantasy XV, but considering what we’ve seen lately, I’m willing to wait just as long as it takes. This game looks really incredible.
