Get ready, Final Fantasy fans! Square Enix officials have announced that they will reveal more information about Final Fantasy XV (and its speculated release) at an upcoming “Active Time Report” scheduled for Aug. 29 as part of PAX Prime. Considering PAX Prime is in a matter of three days, it may be time for Final Fantasy fans to get more than excited for the event.
Final Fantasy XV Director, Hajime Tabata, has confirmed to GameSpot that fans can expect to play the game before 2017, indicating the game will be released in 2016. Asked about when Square Enix release plans to reveal the release date, Tabata replied:
“At the very least, I can tell you that it isn’t going to be released this year. I think we’ll be able to tell you when we’re making the announcement around PAX Prime, at the end of this month.”
Final Fantasy XV director Hajmi Tabata will appear on a stage at the Grand Hyatt Seattle hotel to make his first-ever North American Active Time Report presentation. In terms of what he’ll talk about, Square Enix said fans can expect “a few personal stories” about the game’s development.
Final Fantasy XV, originally named Versus XIII, was fist unveiled nine years ago at E3 2006. Given that Final Fantasy XV is one of Square Enix’s flagship titles, the title will set the tone for other related titles, such as the Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest and Tomb Raider series.

I believe that games are an important form of entertainment, and that they can uplift and inspire millions of people around the world. I love JRPGs, and dabble in many other genres, especially MOBAs.
