Square Enix has just revealed their financial report for the fiscal year that ends on March 31st, 2014, and in it they reduced their sales forecast from 17.23 million to 12 million. While this isn’t set in stone, it has lead some to believe that Final Fantasy XV will not be coming out this year.
Research analyst David Gibson posted the following on twitter:
“Square Enix forecast of game units falling to 12m implies no FF15 in the year ending Mar 2015.”
This all makes sense, in my opinion, because I never really expected Final Fantasy XV to release this year in the first place. When the developers showed off both that and Kingdom Hearts III I got the impression that both would be coming mid-to-late 2015, at the earliest.
