In a recent live broadcast from Square Enix, Hajime Tabata, director Final Fantasy XV, announced his imminent resignation from Luminous Productions and Square Enix Group. As a result, three of them four downloadable materials announced in April this year they were also canceled.
Tabata was also the director Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy Type-0, replacing Tetsuya Nomura with the director FFXV from 2013, who in turn devoted himself Kingdom Hearts IIIThrough his studio Luminous Productions, the Square Enix branch, he tried to promote three A titles with innovative technology. Now you will focus on new personal projects.
Regarding Final Fantasy XV, announced DLC plan for four episodes The Dawn of the FutureI will only allow light to see "Episode Ardyn", which will take place 30 years before the main story. This episode will be released in March 2019However, the episodes of Aranei, Lunafreya and Noctis will never be able to do so despite the earlier announcement.
The announcement of the "Prologue from the Ardyn episode" took advantage of this opportunity as a progress in the form of shorts, which will premiere on December 15 and January 10. On the other hand multiplayer "Brothers of arms" from FFXV will be released as an independent product on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 12This new version will contain new bosses, suits and weapons. It will cost 9.99 USD, but it will be free for those who have already bought the previous edition.
Finally, Final Fantasy XV will work with Final Fantasy XIV under the slogan "Adventurer from another world", which will start on December 12th. Completing this event will give players the opportunity to play multiplayer online thematic costumes
This message from FFXV appears soon after the Square Enix financial report, which showed an extraordinary loss of $ 33 million, probably due to a change in Luminous Productions' concentration. The abolition of all future content and even the abandonment of Tabata would be directly related to this.
And in this way, as "finally", we can say goodbye to the critically divided Final Fantasy XV.
