Forums - Gaming Discussion - FFXV Director "Tabata" has left Square Enix

RIP Tabata career in SE.


He did an amazing job with FFXV considering how much he had to fix from the past mistakes. It wasnt perfect but he managed to salvage FFXV, shame that the rest of the planned DLC was cancelled though - was looking forward to the extra story DLCs :(

So as some one who hasn't played FF ever, this seems like a big loss for Square.

Cause from what I've seen and read, here's my understanding of what the situation of FF15 was:
1) Other director had his head up his ass, taking like 10 years to finish the game, resulting in the game going in dev hell (?)
2) Tabata came in and turned things around, actually managing to put out a good final product.

So if that's indeed true, that's a big loss for Square.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

No idea what happened with Nomura and FF vs XIII/FFXV but he's pretty much done with KH3 which is coming out next month.

 

 

I think there's some backstage politics playing in the background that made the development for FFvsXIII/FFXV to go to hell for a couple of years.

 

 

Regardless, Tabata leaving is a big loss because it pretty much spelled the end for any future developments for FFXV at least in the light of new content and of course this means the FF Type series is pretty much dead since Tabata made the Type series.

Tetsuya Nomura and his team was pulled away from FFvXIII multiple times to help with FFXIII-2, FFXIII-Lightning Returns, KH handheld games, and for saving FFXIV, through the direction of Yoichi Wada. Saving FFXIV was a bigger concern for SE in 2010 because its original launch damaged SE reputation.
