Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata revealed some information about the game’s release date during Gamescom in Colonge, Germany this past week.

Tabata confirmed that the team has set a firm release date internally. “Certainly, one thing I would like to say to [worried fans] to reassure them, is that we’ve set down the release date, we know when it is, and we’ve got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we’re proceeding along that as planned,” Tabata said. He also dropped some hints as to when it’s not going to be released. First, he said “At the very least, I can tell you that it isn’t going to be released this year,” but then goes on to say “We can certainly say to people: it’s not going to be 2017. It’s going to be before that.” So, if it’s not 2015, and it’s before 2017, my math tells me that Final Fantasy XV will be released in 2016. Of course, that’s not a certainty, as Tabata admitted that he’d be disappointed if the game did come out as late as 2017.

Tabata did say that “I think we’ll be able to tell you when we’re making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month,” so more information is definitely on its way.

Final Fantasy XV will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Let us know if you’re looking forward to the game in the comments below.

    “I think we’ll be able to tell you when we’re making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month.”

    So, he’s announcing now that they’re going to announce at PAX when they’re going to announce the release date. I’ve seen announcements of upcoming announcements before, but I think this is the first time I’ve seen an announcement of an upcoming announcement of an upcoming announcement.
