3 'Final Fantasy XV' DLC cancelled as director leaves company

Final Fantasy Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades Launches This December
Troy Mann | 10 November, 2018, 14:42

Square Enix just announced in a livestream that three of the four upcoming pieces of downloadable content for Final Fantasy XV have been cancelled.

Following on from Square Enix's $33 million loss yesterday, the publisher has held a Final Fantasy XV livestream, essentially to announce that future DLCs are now cancelled.

Originally, the plan was for four downloadable, extra episodes to be offered, each titled after a different character: Ardyn, Aranea, Luna, and Noctis. Episode Ardyn, which will flesh out the game's world 30 years prior to Final Fantasy XV's story, will still make it to gamers' systems, with a planned release set for March of 2019. A chunk of Square Enix's financial loss this year came from setting that studio up.

The cancellation of future FFXV content is unfortunate news for fans, as is Tabata's exit from the company.

The Red Dead Online beta will begin in November 2018 with a full release date yet to be revealed . It's now sold over 17 million units worldwide.


Tabata hasn't announced what he will be doing next but Luminous Productions will continue to exist under Square Enix. "As production of Episode Ardyn continues and Luminous Productions works on new projects, I felt that it was time for me to hand over the torch to the next-generation group of talented and trustworthy colleagues and believe that they will create something wonderful". "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.

Players who already own the Comrades DLC via the Final Fantasy XV season pass will get the standalone version for free.

This news no doubt comes as a shock to fans of Final Fantasy XV, especially given the timing of the announcement. We'll see a crossover event with Final Fantasy 14 launch next month across Xbox One, PS4, and PC, while Final Fantasy 15: Comrades is still due for its standalone release on Xbox One and PS4 on December 12.
