Final Fantasy XV was on the lips of everyone at Gamescom last week as the game’s director, Hajime Tabata, announced that the game is on schedule to be released before 2017. (Given the process of elimination, that means we’ll be seeing the new Final Fantasy title in 2016.)

However, it was in an interview with Gamespot which it was let loose that Square Enix is looking at a global release for the upcoming RPG, the first for the series.

“This may be something that we are little bit embarrassed to talk about, but really, this is the first time that we’ve done a packaged, standalone Final Fantasy game with a simultaneous global launch, so we didn’t have the setup to deal with that, really,” Stated Tabata. “The first thing we had to do was rearrange our internal structure to create something that could do that. That was the first important work on the project.”

The game is set to launch on the PS4 and Xbox One, players who picked up copies of Final Fantasy Type 0 HD at launch (or are lucky enough to find a day one edition) are able to download a demo giving a small taste of how combat, movement and just a general scope of how big the new game will be world wise.
