Square Enix and Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata have announced that the game will now launch on the 29th November, two months later than originally expected.
The delay was rumoured last week with leaks coming out of GameStop which had distributed the new date and stand corrections but Square Enix had remained tight-lipped.
The rumour was confirmed by Square Enix through their Official Twitter channel.

In the announcement video below, Tabata explains that the game is complete and that they are working on a 30-minute gameplay video due to release tomorrow, 16th August. Although the game is complete and a Master disc version does exist, the team felt that the quality wasn’t where it should be and a day one patch was in development. However, Tabata acknowledges that not everyone can get patches for whatever reason so the day one patch will be incorporated onto the release version disc.
You may need to enable subtitles in the video settings if you don’t speak Japanese.
Final Fantasy XV launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 29th November 2016. The PC version will follow although no official release date has been set at this time.
