Final Fantasy fans are going to have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the franchise’s latest installment. The game’s director, Hajime Tabata, announced on Monday morning that Final Fantasy XV‘s release date is being pushed back two months from Sept. 30 to Nov. 29.
“Our objective with FFXV was to deliver a Final Fantasy of the highest possible quality, to every person who buys the game,” Tabata said in a YouTube video. “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.”
In the video, Tabata confirms that the master version of the game is completed but he and his team need extra time polishing a downloadable add-on, known as a patch. He promises that on its release at the end of November, his team “will deliver Final Fantasy XV in the best possible state it can be.”
This schedule shift will not affect the video game’s tie-in movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, which is still set to be released on Aug. 19 in select theaters and on Digital HD on Aug. 30. Tabata also teased that a gameplay video for the new game will be out tomorrow for fans to get a glimpse at the new world.
