Final Fantasy XV DLC plans canceled amid Hajime Tabata's departure

Final Fantasy XV producer Yuji Shinoda and Final Fantasy XV "Episode Ardyn" DLC director Takefumi Terada announced in a "special program" on Thursday that Square Enix is producing an anime short based on the "Episode Ardyn" DLC, titled "Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn - Prologue".

While Final Fantasy XV is Tabata's biggest project to date, he's been at Square Enix for over a decade, also serving as the director on Final Fantasy Type-0 and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII.

During Square Enix's worldwide Final Fantasy XV broadcast, they announced that the standalone Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades will launch on December 12 for PS4 and Xbox One. Episodes concerned with characters Aranea, Lunafreye and Noctis have all been ditched, though the Ardyn pack - which focuses on the game's main antagonist - will still come in March 2019. "The desire is to deliver this new AAA experience to everyone even a day [sic] sooner, and due to this directional change, the company chose to focus our resources on the development of this AAA title". 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. However, no further details were divulged on what this new title is.

While the previously announced modding tools and Steam Workshop support have already been added, it's unclear whether the level editor is also forthcoming.

Players who already own the Comrades DLC via the Final Fantasy XV season pass will get the standalone version for free.

Featuring side quests, boss battles, mini-games and more, World of Final Fantasy Maxima also includes the option to carry your progress across to the challenging new Nightmare difficulty mode upon finishing the game, starting with fresh save data for a second story playthrough.
