Final Fantasy XV will have a simultaneous worldwide release date, according to the game’s director Hajime Tabata.
In a interview with Gamespot, Tabata revealed that the next installment will be the first in the series to be released at the same time across all regions.
“This may be something that we are little bit embarrassed to talk about, but really, this is the first time that we’ve done a packaged, standalone Final Fantasy game with a simultaneous global launch, so we didn’t have the setup to deal with that, really. The first thing we had to do was rearrange our internal structure to create something that could do that. That was the first important work on the project.”
After much waiting and anticipation, Final Fantasy XV will finally launch in 2016 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
