“Final Fantasy 15” is one of the most anticipated JRPGs even to this date. First announced in 2006 as “Final Fantasy XIII Versus,” the title saw several delays for years on end, and inevitably a title change when gaming consoles moved up to the eighth generation. Now, Square Enix is holding a March 30 event to finally announce the release date for the long-awaited title. But if the recent rumours hold true, then the release date may have been revealed earlier than what we have expected.
According to a report from Gematsu, “Final Fantasy 15” is set to arrive on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One on exactly September 30, 2016. The intel comes from a reliable source that has already been backed up by three other independent sources who are familiar with the matter. There’s still no official word if Square Enix will be porting the game to PC.
“Our sources, in this case, are reliable,” Gematsu said. “However, given the sensitivity of the matter, and that within a company setting anything can change before it is made public, we’re reporting this as a rumour until the release date is officially announced.”
Officially, Square Enix is planning to announce the release date of “Final Fantasy 15” during “Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV” on March 30. The company is also planning to showcase more about the game at the event, which will take place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
Square Enix has been holding “Final Fantasy 15” for a decade now. However, despite its long development phase, the title’s main concept, universe, as well as the plot, remained intact during the years of delay. In other related news, Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach, who also happens to be a fan of the critically acclaimed franchise, may also make an appearance at March 30 event.
