Final Fantasy XV Director Wants to Release Three New DLC Episodes in 2018
During a livestream for Final Fantasy XV earlier today, Square Enix revealed a ton of information about their future content roadmap for Final Fantasy XV and how they see the game continuing to improve throughout the following year.
According to Square Enix (via Gematsu), the company will reveal details about the future content they have planned by the end of 2017. From there, Square Enix will officially announce when certain content will be releasing and in what form it will be released in.
Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata also said that he wants to release at least three “Episode” add-ons to the game in 2018, starting with an episode for Ardyn. According to Tabata, many users pointed out that the “backbone” of the world was insufficient, but Tabata hopes that Ardyn’s episode will lead to a proper depiction of the world’s story.
Tabata also acknowledged that he’s seen the clamor for an episode dedicated to Luna, but didn’t offer much else in the way of confirmation. He did, however, say that he wants to release the episodes when they are in a state of “absolute sufficiency.”
The focus, he says, is not on just releasing content in 2018, but making sure the content is sufficient enough to release before it comes out. Tabata said the focus is not only to meet players expectations, but to also create developments for those that might have lost interest in the game in order to sway them back.
Final Fantasy XV is available now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and will launch for the PC in 2018.
