Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata resigns from studio

Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades Launches This December

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

The one remaining, Ardyn, will be out in 2019. Before we dive into what's been canceled and what's still being worked on over at Square Enix HQ, let's give a little background on these four DLC releases. The DLC story episode starring antagonist Ardyn is still coming, as are more of the multiplayer Comrades and some FFXIV crossover gubbins, but the DLCs focused on Aranea, Lunafreya, and Noctis are in the bin. During a recent livestream, Square Enix announced that Tabata has stepped own as the game's director.

Final Fantasy XV was in production for almost a decade.

Final Fantasy XV has been a monster hit for Square Enix, selling more than eight million copies worldwide since it was released in 2016 and it's seen a number of popular DLC releases since then.

In addition, the program announced that it will release a standalone game version of the Final Fantasy XV "Comrades" DLC as Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades on December 13 (December 12 in North America), with sales of the original "Comrade" DLC to stop on the same date. Hopefully Tabata continues to work in the games industry in the future at a new studio. This loss was announced in a financial statement alongside an explanation that Luminous would now move to making new AAA games, and it's now clear what it relates to. He took over as diretor on Final Fantasy XV from Tetsuya Nomura back in 2013.

Finally, fans will be happy to hear that Final Fantasy XV will be getting a new cross-promotion event with Final Fantasy XIV Online dubbed "Adventurer From Another World".

"In regards to my next endeavors and near future, I have a project that I truly wish to solidify as my next challenge after FFXV". The new standalone version will include new bosses and other extras, like costumes and weapons, upon its release next month.
