75% Of Final Fantasy XV's DLC Just Got Cancelled

With Tabata taking leave of the company and the Final Fantasy XV project, three of the four planned DLC expansions have been cancelled. During a recent livestream, Square Enix announced that Tabata has stepped own as the game's director. The rest of the DLC has been scrapped.

Square Enix just announced in a livestream that three of the four upcoming pieces of downloadable content for Final Fantasy XV have been cancelled. Once it does go live, the game mode in the main Final Fantasy XV game will no longer be playable, players will instead have to download Comrades separately.

Bottom line: Amid significant losses and the resignation of Luminous Productions studio head Hajime Tabata, the fate of Final Fantasy XV is all but sealed.

"In regards to my next endeavors and near future, I have a project that I truly wish to solidify as my next challenge after Final Fantasy XV", said the game designer. There are plans to release a new anime short, and a collaboration with MMO Final Fantasy XIV will arrive on December 12th. "For that reason, I have made a decision to leave my current position and start my own business in order to achieve my goal", he explained. Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Comrades releases the same day, with new bosses, weapons, and costumes available.

"Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades" will release on December 12 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
