Final Fantasy XV DLC cancelled

World of Final Fantasy Maxima Out Now For Xbox One

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. Production for "Episode Ardyn" is ongoing, with a planned release for March 2019.

In a surprising and drastic move, Square Enix have made a decision to can the production of more DLC for Final Fantasy XV and write off the costs of its production, as they look to point Luminous Productions toward creating new AAA games.

The news on the DLC front is surprising: three of the four announced DLC packs scheduled for release in 2019 have been canceled.

On the topic of why these DLC packs were canceled, global brand director Akio Ofuji says the team assigned to developing them have been moved on to another "AAA title". "The main goal of establishing Luminous Productions was to create a studio that can deliver a completely new AAA title to the global market".


During the stream, Square Enix explained that due to a "directional change" within the company, resources from the DLCs were being reassigned to working on a new AAA title. According to Eurogamer, Tabata was given the option of turning Luminous Productions into one of Square Enix's regular business divisions, or spin it off into a separate company with investment from the publisher.

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

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.

Players who already own the Comrades DLC via the Final Fantasy XV season pass will get the standalone version for free. The standalone version is playable without the main game, and will have new bosses, costumes, and weapons.
