Back in September,Final Fantasy XV Game Director Hajime Tabata revealed that the game’s development was roughly 55% completed from when he joined the project two years ago, but it’s “still going to take a while” before we actually see the finished product.

While it’s not a release date confirmation, Tabata spoke with GameKult at Paris Games Week last week, revealing that they’re hiring more people to help development:

The number of developers on the project is actually a serious issue. We’re going to need a little more manpower as we start working towards the master build, so we’ve started recruiting more developers.

Even with the team on a hiring spree, Tabata added, “A target in terms of which year and season the game will be released has been roughly decided. It might be a little bit after what you’re probably hoping for, though.”

Do you think Tabata’s comment means we’ll see Final Fantasy XV on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015, 2016 or 2017?
