Square Enix held a special Final Fantasy XV livestream today to commemorate the game's upcoming second anniversary. Namely, the game's director, Hajime Tabata, has announced that he's leaving Square Enix. On top of that, Final Fantasy XV director, Hajime Tabata, has resigned. A chunk of Square Enix's financial loss this year came from setting that studio up.
In addition, Square Enix confirmed Tabata's departure through a written statement. Did many of you play Final Fantasy XV?More news: Chelsea’s Barkley fears hostile reception against Everton

In addition, the program announced that it will release a standalone game version of the Final Fantasy XV "Comrades" DLC as Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer: Comrades on December 13 (December 12 in North America), with sales of the original "Comrade" DLC to stop on the same date. The only one left off the chopping block is Episode Ardyn, which will focus on the game's main antagonist. One controversialdelay later, it would finally hit store shelves, but now Square Enix has more bad news for fans. Luminous will, apparently, instead work on another AAA title that is still a mystery. You will be able to watch it on YouTube and Niconico.
"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".
Final Fantasy XV released in 2016 with a season pass containing extra content, but season pass holders won't be missing out, as it appears everything that was promised has been released. "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.
