Oddly, Square Enix determined to announce the cancellation of this content material by selling a particular dwell stream occasion. It’s not usually that you simply hear a few studio hyping up the announcement that they’re canceling content material, however there you go. While Square Enix did affirm that they’ll nonetheless launch episode Ardyn (the ultimate a part of a collection of deliberate story DLC releases), however three different items of beforehand introduced DLC have been canceled and the studio doesn’t plan on releasing any extra DLC for the sport. 

However, Square Enix did announce {that a} standalone model of Final Fantasy XV‘s Comrades multiplayer mode might be launched for PS4 and Xbox One on December 12. This model of the sport will embody new content material and might be accessible without spending a dime to anybody who owns a earlier model of the mode.

As for Hajime Tabata, there’s some debate for the time being concerning whether or not or not he departed due to the choice to cancel the sport’s DLC or if it is the opposite means round (the latter appears just a little extra probably). The state of affairs is difficult by the truth that Hajime Tabata took over for the sport’s unique director, Tetsuya Nomura, and that Tabata had seemingly moved on to work on one other mission inside the firm moderately than commit his full time to FF XV‘s DLC. 

That’s why some are speculating that this determination is consultant of larger points inside Square Enix. The studio appeared to move that principle off on the go a bit by stating that they determined to cancel the DLC in an effort to commit a number of the sources (together with manpower) that they have been spending on it to different tasks. 

In any case, this successfully marks the tip of the highway for FF XV; an formidable reimagining of the franchise that did not fairly obtain its loftiest objectives however managed to be a reasonably fascinating expertise in its personal proper.
