Tabata said, “I understand why people are feeling that way after coming to Cologne and speaking to a lot of the media.”

The director is trying to cool down fans with his statement. He mentioned, “We really do get the feeling that people are a bit worried. Certainly, one thing I would like to say to them to reassure them, is that we’ve set down the release date, we know when it is, and we’ve got a complete road map lined up, right up to launch, and we’re proceeding along that as planned.”

Just before 2015 Gamescom, Square Enix teased an upcoming reveal. “Final Fantasy XV” was not in the list at E3 which increased speculations about a release date. People assumed that the game will have an official release but they were not sure when.

The company also released a story trailer which depicts events prior to the game’s set-up. There are some important narratives in the trailer. The political conflict, the mist behind the building, and a deep emotional storyline is going to be the backbone of the new game.

It is always good to know more about your favorite game franchise. With the key person confirming the news, fans can now wait until 2016 to try their hands on the game.
