As a fan of Final Fantasy XV, I can fully admit the game is flawed. The story is not well told, there are major characters that aren’t given time to shine, and there are huge chunks of the story missing. Fans were hoping that the future DLC’s that were announced for 2019 would fulfill the holes that the main game left. Unfortunately, it seems Square-Enix has canceled all future DLC for FFXV except one; the Ardyn DLC for March 2019.

In April, Square stated they were working on 4 DLC packs: Ardyn, Aranea, Luna, and Noctis. Hajime Tabata, the director of XV, has announced that he is leaving Square-Enix. Whether he will still be with Luminous Productions, his spin-off company from Square-Enix remains to be seen. There was also news that FFXV Comrades would be released as a standalone title in 2019 for PS4 and Xbox One. You can watch the press conference below but it’s in Japanese.

Final Thoughts:

Final Fantasy XV will be officially finished by 2019. It’s unfortunate that we will never see the backstory for Luna and Aranea considering that they were important but barely in the story. XV is going to be remembered as a bad entry in the series. Even as a fan, there’s huge flaws in the game and the push for DLC to fix them are ridiculous to defend. So I guess I’m not a fan anymore. Square-Enix has burned me once again.
