[UPDATE] Following the initial reports, Kotaku now has heard from a “number of sources” that Final Fantasy XV is delayed. Additionally, Gamnesia has posted a picture of marketing materials that show the rumored November 29 release date. Kotaku says it has also seen other marketing materials apparently referencing a delay. The GameStop signage will reportedly go up on Monday, August 15, so the delay announcement should come very soon, it seems.
Square Enix has not responded to a request for comment.
The original story is below.
“Promotional materials with the new date have arrived at some GameStop stores with instructions that they are not to be put up until after Sunday, August 14th, so an official announcement could be coming then,” the report said.
Additionally, Gematsu, which accurately reported Final Fantasy XV’s September 30 release date before it was announced, has heard from a source that Gamnesia’s report is accurate. The site’s source is apparently the same one who tipped them off to the September 30 release date.
GameSpot has contacted Square Enix in an attempt to get more details.
The GameStop website still lists the Final Fantasy XV release date as September 30. Additionally, the Gamnesia report didn’t include images of the reported marketing materials. For now, take this with a grain of salt. If the report is accurate, we should know one way or the other soon.
Final Fantasy XV will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while Square Enix is “thinking about a PC version.” If the RPG does come to PC, fans should not expect this version to launch alongside the console editions in September, if it happens at all.
