Final Fantasy fans will have to wait longer to get their hands on the latest game in the series. Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy XV has been delayed by two months, pushing the release date from 30th September 2016 to 29th November 2016. The reason for the delay is to allow extra time for polish and testing the game’s quality before putting it in the hands of players, and includes reworking the day one patch so it is included on the disc instead.
Final Fantasy XV’s director Hajime Tabata released a video giving more details.
In related news, it turns out that the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition won’t include the game’s DLC season pass. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition will set you back £189.99/$269.99, but for some odd reason, you will have to fork out more on getting the season pass:
Will the Ultimate collectors edition contain the season pass?
– sadly no & we looked into making more UCE but we were told we still can’t.

The cheaper Digital Premium Edition of the game, costing £69.99, does include the season pass, however.
