Square Enix has confirmed that the launch of angsty hair simulator Final Fantasy XV has been pushed to November, missing its previously announced September release date, because the team needs more time to “further polish and conduct quality testing”. You’ve waited ten years for the game already, so what’s another two months, anyway? Obligatory Finally Fantasy XV joke here.
“From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series,” explained game director Hajime Tabata. “Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this. As the director and lead of this project, I wish to personally apologize for the additional wait. As a team, we want Final Fantasy 15 to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding.”
Here’s the full explapology (turn on subtitles for Englishing):
Game’s out on PS4 and Xbox One on 29 November.
