Back in April of 2018, Square Enix shocked us all: Final Fantasy XV would receive 4 new DLC chapters to be released throughout 2019 to help flesh out the storyline and answer some of the questions left unanswered from the main storyline.
Seven months later, everything has changed. During the Final Fantasy XV 2nd Anniversary livestream it was announced that Episode Noctis, Aranea, and Lunafreya have all been canceled. The ONLY DLC chapter that will remain is the one we truly want to play: Episode Ardyn. It will release in March 2019 and will receive a short anime tie-in film prior to release.
Need a preview? Here ya go.
The shocking news doesn’t stop there!! FFXV Director Hajime Tabata, who was tasked with turning Final Fantasy Versus XIII into FFXV has RESIGNED from Square Enix as of October 31st to bring to life his own personal dream project.
All of this makes sense now, as Square Enix reported earlier this week the loss of $33 million smackeroosbdue to the shift in Luminous Production’s strategy. I’ll say this. If this somehow helps with us getting the Final Fantasy VII Remake faster, I’m totally cool with it. I’ll most definitely play Episode Ardyn, but I won’t be losing any sleep tonight regarding the other chapters.
What do you think, Brah? Did Square Enix screw up or is this decision for the best? Let us know in the comments below!
