Final Fantasy XV | Noctis

According to rumors coming through Gamnesia, the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, originally slated for release on September 30, 2016, has been delayed to November 29. The rumor comes in the form of new marketing materials delivered to GameStop stores, including a sticker to be added to Final Fantasy XV displays showing the new release date.

Gamnesia states that the news comes from a “trusted source within GameStop’s management”, which has provided them with accurate news in the past such release dates for the new Nintendo 3DS and Star Wars Battlefront. The displays are supposed to be changed on August 15, meaning that if this rumor is true, we will likely be hearing something from Square Enix about it on that date, which is during Gamescom.

Gamnesia’s report includes an instruction image, accompanying the new marketing materials:

Whatever the case may be, it is likely that we will be hearing something from Square Enix within the next couple of days.

    i think its false but at the same time i want to to be true……..idk why but i feel a delay would help the game more hmm

    If this is real it could be some pretty bad PR for them. It’s a game that’s been 10 years in development and given that they announced a season pass recently a backlash is to be expected.

    Yeah we shall see. All their marketing material still says September 30th, so a last minute delay would have to come with a reason.
