Maybe delayed till 29th of november

Final Fantasy XV Has Been Delayed to November 29th

It's been a long wait with multiple setbacks and engine changes along the way, but earlier this year Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XV is launching on September 30th. Unfortunately, it appears that a delay is on the way. A source within GameStop management has tipped us off that Square Enix has delayed the game until November 29th. Promotional materials with the new date have arrived at some GameStop stores with instructions that they are not to be put up until after Sunday, August 14th, so an official announcement could be coming then.

The same source that has revealed this information to Gamnesia has proven reliable on multiple occasions in the past. This includes leaking the release date and trade-in deals for New Nintendo 3DS as well as the release date for Star Wars Battlefront.

Update: A follow-up article that includes an image of GameStop's instructions for changing Final Fantasy XV's release date on promotional materials can be found here.

Leaked Instructions for GameStop Employees Indicate Final Fantasy XV’s Release Date is November 29th

Yesterday we reported that Final Fantasy XV has been delayed to November 29th. This information came from a trusted source within GameStop management who has accurately leaked several stories in the past, including the release date and trade-in deals for New Nintendo 3DS as well as the release date for Star Wars Battlefront.

This report was also corroborated by the Gematsu source that leaked the game's original release date of September 30th, but neither of us could initially provide images of the promotional material. Thankfully, I have since been able to acquire an image of the instructions that accompanied the new date, and you can view it below.

Following the release of our initial report, many GameStop employees and concerned readers contacted me to note that their stores' promotional materials still cited a September 30th release date. It's true that GameStop stores were very recently sent materials with that date, but the date has apparently been changed since those materials were printed and shipped. As a result, the old materials will still be used, but stickers with the new date are being sent to GameStop stores to cover up the old date. The new date is planned to go on display on Monday, August 15th, so an official announcement will likely come then, if not sooner.

Posted on reddit by a game stop employee:

There is no word of a delay, but there is no confirmation of a lack of delay, either.

We just recently got a bunch of marketing for the game, including standees, cover art, and the Playstation live displays just updated to include trailer and pictures of it. On top of that, the annoying as fuck TV is spouting the ad for it coming in September is playing every 10 minutes. There is absolutely nothing indicating a delay on our end. No news/execution changes. No date changes in our marketing kits.

Not to pop a bubble, but Gamestop employees would not know about this already. There was a rumor going around the district managers months ago that there might be a delay to November. That was before the official reveal of the release date.

I'm guessing that same rumor is resurfacing, OR, the Ultimate Collectors Edition is getting a November re-release, since Square confirmed they would be redoing and releasing more of them. Or, maybe it's a PC version coming in November, even though I highly doubt that..

Remember, we also listed PC as a pre-order platform for the game when it went up.
