Noctis and friends have put their bromance-filled road trip on hold. Square Enix has confirmed today that Final Fantasy XV, the long-awaited JRPG once known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, will now launch on November 29th, rather than September 30th. The two-month delay will make room for an update that was going to be offered as a "day-one patch." Director Hajime Tabata believes the downloadable would have been unfair to players with poor internet access, which is why he's decided to wait and include it with the main disc. The extra time, Square Enix promises, will also be used to "conduct quality testing" and add "further polish."

"We need a little more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this," Tabata said. "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."

In the meantime, fans have the Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV anime to binge-watch, as well as the feature-length film Kingsglaive later this month. Of course, neither are substitutes for the full game, but they should offer some tasty morsels of lore while you wait for the full adventure in Eos.
