Last month, Japanese game director and Square Enix head honcho Hajime Tabata announced the delay of "Final Fantasy XV" from the originally planned September 30 release due to the need of the development team to carry out more quality testing in order for the game to be polished.

Here is a full text of the transcript from Tabata taken from Gematsu:

"From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this. As the director and lead of this project, I wish to personally apologize for the additional wait. As a team, we want Final Fantasy XV to achieve a level of perfection that our fans deserve. We kindly ask for your understanding."
