Director Hajime Tabata confirmed in August that Final Fantasy XV has been delayed. Final Fantasy XV was previously announced for September 30th but got delayed until November 29th.
"Our objective with Final Fantasy XV was to deliver a Final Fantasy of the highest possible quality to every single person who buys the game," Tabata says in a video message. "We have completed the master version, but when it comes to that highest possible quality, we felt that we had not quite reached this standard yet.”
Square Enix has been working on adding additional content to the master version, but decided to push back the release of the game so that people who play the disc version without connecting their consoles online can still have the same gaming experience.
Final Fantasy XV will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 29th.
