Director confirms internal date set

Final Fantasy XV's lengthy development time has been long documented. Square Enix's promised strong showing for the next mainline entry this gamescom amounted to a fairly boring trailer, doing nothing to reassure anyone that this game is actually coming. 

Director Hajime Tabata just confirmed to GameSpot that Final Fantasy XV will be coming in 2016, sometime near a decade after if was announced as Final Fantasy XIII Versus in 2006.

"At the very least, I can tell you that it isn't going to be released this year. I think we'll be able to tell you when we're making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month," Tabata said. "I understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media," he said. "We really do get the feeling that people are a bit worried. Certainly, one thing I would like to say to them to reassure them, is that we've set down the release date, we know when it is, and we've got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we're proceeding along that as planned."

"We can certainly say to people: it's not going to be 2017. It's going to be before that."

Not unexpected, but always good to have it on paper.
