The Final Fnatasy XV Comrades Expansion Has Been Delayed

Fans that were eagerly awaiting the upcoming Comrades expansion of Final Fantasy XV will unfortunately have to keep waiting, as Square Enix has recently announced via Twitter that the expansion won’t be released until early November.

Blaming the delay on final adjustments to the game, the company hasn’t confirmed a new release date but did mention that “early November” is the target. While a delay may be not ideal to most players, waiting an extra two weeks or so in order to get a more complete and working game is never a bad thing.

In case you missed it, director Hajime Tabata spoke a couple of months ago about why the team behind the game has focused more on expansions than sequels:

“What we’re trying to do with that is to depict that missing 10 years of history right at the end of the story,” Tabata said, referring to a late chapter in the main game. Players create their own member of the Kingsglaive, the army that protected and fought for the kingdom of Eos, during the Comrades campaign.

“If we had tried to do that as a traditional, full-scale sequel, that would have been very difficult,” the director said, “but it works really well in [keeping] that continued relationship with fans.”

Final Fantasy XV is out now for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
