Final Fantasy XV DLC Episodes Cancelled; Game Director Hajime Tabata Resigns

Final Fantasy 7 Remake to Feature Content From Spin-Offs

During Square Enix's worldwide Final Fantasy XV broadcast, they announced that the standalone Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades will launch on December 12 for PS4 and Xbox One. Production for "Episode Ardyn" is ongoing, with a planned release for March 2019. The rest of the DLC has been scrapped. Square Enix used the stream to release a brief teaser for the expansion and reveal Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn Prologue, which is effectively two additional teasers to be released on December 15, 2018, and January 10, 2019.

The departure of Tabata is a huge sting for fans.

Not much else is known about what Tabata's next project might be or even what his new company will be called, but it's all a matter of time until we learn more. Only hours prior to the announcement Square Enix Holdings reported an "extraordinary loss" in finances through Luminous Productions - amounting to 3,733 million yen. This loss was announced in a financial statement alongside an explanation that Luminous would now move to making new AAA games, and it's now clear what it relates to.

"In regards to my next endeavors and near future, I have a project that I truly wish to solidify as my next challenge after Final Fantasy XV", said the game designer. It's not clear what came first in this case, the chicken or the egg, but whatever he left first, or the DLC was cancelled causing him to quit, Final Fantasy XV's development is no longer ongoing in the fashion it was before. "For that reason, I have made a decision to leave my current position and start my own business in order to achieve my goal", he explained. Later, it was announced that Final Fantasy XIV will get a special event designed for XV owners, which features Noctis in a quest titled "Adventurer From Another World".
