Final Fantasy 15 has been delayed by two months

We've been pretty patient for ten years so an extra two months to wait definitely isn't going to break us now. Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy 15 release date is now November 29 instead of the previous October shelf date. It's released a statement and apology from game director Hajime Tabata.

“From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this,” he says. “As the director and lead of this project, I wish to personally apologise for the additional wait. As a team, we want Final Fantasy 15 to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding.” You can see the full statement in the video below.  As always, I think we can all agree that we'd much rather a delay than a game that isn't the best it can be and, hey, we'll still be playing before Christmas.
