It's been a long wait with multiple delays along the way, but earlier this year Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XV is launching on September 30th (http://www.gamnesia.com/news/final-fantasy-xv-launches-on-september-30th-and-a-demo-launches-later-today). Unfortunately, it appears that one more delay is on the way. A source within GameStop management has tipped us off that Square Enix has delayed the game until November 29th. 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 same source that has revealed this information to Gamnesia has proven reliable on multiple occasions in the past. This includes leaking the release date (http://www.gamnesia.com/news/gamestop-new-nintendo-3ds-launches-in-north-america-on-february-13) and trade-in deals (http://www.gamnesia.com/news/new-nintendo-3ds-gamestop-trade-in-deals-revealed-for-north-america#.VLRkcCvF8rV) for New Nintendo 3DS as well as the release date for Star Wars Battlefront (http://www.gamnesia.com/news/star-wars-battlefront-pre-orders-open-tomorrow-releases-november-17#.VS_w2Bz3-iw).

I really hope this is not true, if it is then obviously if the game needs it then it's fine but I really want to play it next month :(

Really? The game is due out a month away, but it's just a rumor so probably not.

If it is happening, we should know by next week at Gamescom.

I doubt it at this point. If it needs fixing, they'll just patch it.

Hmm, I would be surprised. It's too big a delay at this point. The end of November would also put FFXV directly up against COD:Infinite Warfare and Pokemon Sun and Moon, which I don't see SE being too keen on doing.

It's possible if their bug count is too high to make submission... but I wouldn't expect 2 months for that. Not this late.

Especially considering they released a brand new trailer TODAY with this line in the description:


Final Fantasy XV will be released on September 30, 2016 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

They probably would have omitted that if they were preparing to announce a 2 month delay

I doubt it, because the season pass was just announced, and you don't do that sort of thing until you're in the VERY late stages of completing the game.

But, I also kind of believe it, because games usually go Gold (ie they're officially finished and they send the master in to be manufactured) within a month of the game's release.

Really up in the air. I hope to god it isn't, but I won't buy it until we hear from a legit source. (Square themselves.)

It is possible they're delaying it so that it's a Neo Launch title.

Definitely not, if FFXV was a PS4 exclusive then this might be the case but seeing how it's multiplatform they are not going to delay the game 2 months just because a hardware upgrade.

Most people are thinking it will just be boost up the quality/performance.

If this IS true, then I'm fine with it. I'd much rather wait to receive a complete product, than deal with the usual crap of buying something that the creators know is incomplete and full of errors, and having to wait for various patches to fill up valuable HDD space before I'm permitted to use the product I just bought at full price.

Looks like the rumour has been quashed.

Yeah, more sources are coming out confirming the delay. And apparently, if the new rumours are true, Gamestop will be rolling out those new advertisements with the new release date tomorrow. Hopefully we'll figure out the truth soon.

Yep...With all the people coming out and saying it will be delayed I think it will be. Tomorrow the truth will come out.

The sad part is this just makes the Uncovered FFXV event really sad because it was hugely about the release date unveiling.

But it does make this joke funny...

Apparently people are looking at the pictures and finding inconsistencies (ie it has been photoshopped) and a lot of GameStop employees are saying they haven't heard anything about this. Also, the smoking gun is pictures of the actual stickers which are none. Some are saying that the Nivember date is actually the PC release date.

Unless SE says something at Gamescon I am assuming it is BS.

Jason S from Kotaku (same guy who reported No Man's Sky delay) has also reported he heard about the delay from a non retail source).

...Obviously the reasons for this are perfectly valid and it's totally reasonable but man I am so disappointed.

Yes, it's dissapointing but i just say 2016 it seems to be the Year of Delays. However like he said they want to give us a High Quality game. I respect the move they did yes like i said it's dissapointing, yes it was pointless to do the Uncovered Event, but that was back in march at that time, they where sure the game was ready.

I really hope this game doesn't end up being the next Duke Nukem Forever.

After ten years and a big ass event specifically for their release date and it gets delayed again? I don't know what's been up with Square Enix in the past few years, but they need to get their shit together.
