Square Enix’s upcoming action role-playing game, Final Fantasy XV release date has been set but it might take more time to complete the game development, according to director Hajime Tabata.

“I can not give the exact date, but I can tell you it has already been set – the final release date and the countries in which it will be released, Hajime Tabata told GameKult.

We are working to release the game on time, but it might take a little more time than you think.”

So there you have it.. the date is in place, the team is working to meet the deadline. The game is currently in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

It was originally a PS3-exclusive project known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, which was formally announced at E3 2006. Then in June 2013, it was eventually revealed to have been renamed and a switch from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“Based on the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology that revolves around a struggle between divine beings and the l’Cie, servants chosen by these gods and granted magic powers to fulfill a predetermined task. However, the precise impact of these concepts on the story is not known.

The game is set in modern times, but the city-like country Lucis which protagonist Noctis hails from is the only technologically advanced location, otherwise surrounded by medieval nations.

The reason for this divide is a cold war waged over crystals, the last of which Lucis holds. The other nations used to have their own crystals, but lost them due to ongoing conflicts.

They have since focused their efforts on the development of weapons rather than on the progress of their culture, which left them in their regressive state.

Just as the cold war ends and a treaty on the peaceful use of crystals is declared, the nation Niflheim unexpectedly invades Lucis, forcing Noctis and his friends to escape.

Having waged wars against the countries Solheim, Tenebrae and Accordo, Niflheim’s forces conquer the last remaining crystal, but Noctis tries to stop them before they can leave the city.”

FFXV playable demo will be available to those who pre-order Final Fantasy Type-0 HD for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Final Fantasy XV will release sometime in 2015/2016 for Xbox One and PS4.
