Confirmed: FFXV To Get Simultaneous Worldwide Release

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Confirmed: FFXV To Get Simultaneous Worldwide Release

Though we still don't have the release date itself.  I for one am glad to hear this as I have always hated having to wait for localization after the initial Japanese release.  Article sourced below. 

Final Fantasy XV was a hot topic during Gamescom last week, when director Hajime Tabata revealed a handful of new details, including the news that the game is on track to be released before 2017, implying that it will be released sometime in 2016.

When asked about the amount of work that's been accomplished over the last year--when it was first revealed that Tabata was taking over the project that was originally helmed by Kingdom Hearts III director, Tetsuya Nomura--Tabata revealed that Final Fantasy XV will be the first main Final Fantasy game to be released simultaneously across all regions.

"This may be something that we are little bit embarrassed to talk about, but really, this is the first time that we've done a packaged, standalone Final Fantasy game with a simultaneous global launch, so we didn't have the setup to deal with that, really. The first thing we had to do was rearrange our internal structure to create something that could do that. That was the first important work on the project."

The million dollar question right there.  I know they mentioned they have a release date in mind (but won't talk about it) and even went as far as to say before 2017.  With the confirmation of the worldwide date though, that puts that timeframe in doubt for me. 



Japanese version delayed CONFIRMED!!



Hmm, pie.

better to release it worldwide at once, so that pre-orders are there. if they released the JP version first and gamers set bad reviews and ratings, it might not sell well in the west. :)

the really main question is when. before you mention anything about global release or what... you've given us an all male character with only Noctis as the playable character, and what else SE are there for us to see? how big is the FF XV world? are there any other party members that we can use? etc...



"Quick, everyone's moaning that we showed bugger all at the last event. Give them some random positive info!"



I'm pretty sure this was already stated at Gamescom when they showed that awful trailer lol.
