Square Enix has still hasn’t confirmed a release date of Final Fantasy XV. The game will get a confirmed release date in an upcoming event in March 2016, but it is still listed as a 2016 release.

While the release window still hasn’t been confirmed yet, Amazon Japan seems to have the game listed for a June 2016 release, pointing towards a Summer 2016 release window for the game.

Update: This is not an official seller on Amazon and appears to be a third party seller. The official product listing can be found here and it is listed with a December 2016 placeholder date. The original story can be read below.

Final Fantasy XV was originally announced at E3 2013. The game was confirmed to be in development for the PS4 and Xbox One. Tetsuya Nomura was originally attached as a director to the project but was later taken off and replaced by Hajime Tabata. You can see the product listing of Amazon Japan below (via NeoGAF), which has the release window set for June 2016.

Final Fantasy XV also received a demo with the release of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD early this year. This demo was called Episode Duscae and featured an early build of the game with a striped down combat system. The demo was received well by most of the fans and critics. Square Enix then later released a huge update for the demo with some new additions and optimizations. The update was called Episode Duscae version 2.0 and it was released after E3 2015.

Final Fantasy XV is currently set for a release in 2016 for the PS4 and Xbox One. The game was confirmed to be playable from start to end early this month, and it was currently in a pre-Beta stage of development.
