During the latest Active Time Report live stream, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata talked about the game’s development once again. He gave fans watching a rough estimate of “60%” and mentioned that a lot of progress is being made on the consoles.
Do note that his number comes after the game’s move to current generation of consoles. As you may know, Final Fantasy XV was previously the PS3 bound Final Fantasy Versus XIII. This means that most of the major work is done, and further development should take less time.
He also stated that as things come along, the development could shoot up to 80% in one go as they start compiling the game’s content. Tabata’s next press stop is in London, where he’ll be participating in a yet unannounced event.
I personally think that Square Enix should refrain on mentioning percentages or numbers when it comes to the game’s development. Final Fantasy Versus XIII’s announcement is almost a decade old now and the fans are obviously not happy with how the whole situation was handled and constantly being told to “please be excited”.
When do you think Final Fantasy XV will release? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
