Final Fantasy 15 release date to be announced in March 2016

Square Enix is set to announce the Final Fantasy 15 release date at a special event in spring 2016.

It seems we may have to wait just a little longer to get our hands on Final Fantasy 15, but it is definitely coming in 2016 from the looks of things.

Square Enix announced yesterday that it plans to officially confirm the title’s release date at an event in March 2016.

This news came out of the Square Panel at PAX Prime this past weekend, which took place in Seattle, Washington over in the US.

The publisher gave very little away about the special event, but it will likely be focused on Final Fantasy 15. You can expect gameplay, reveals and finally, a release date when it rolls around next year.
