Let's face it: you can't help but be cynical of Final Fantasy XV when you've been waiting for the game for almost a decade - and we're guilty of this, too. Time and time again, we've written articles on the title's seemingly limited progress while sighing deeply, wondering if we'll ever actually get to play the darn thing. Even though it's supposed to be releasing next year, we'd by lying if we said that we aren't concerned about the game's condition.
It's refreshing to hear, then, that development is apparently going swimmingly right now. In a post on the official Final Fantasy XV forums, kindly translated by Gematsu, Kitade, one of the title's programmers, has said that the role-playing release is now playable from start to finish, and the first half of the game is of a quality that represents the finished product. Surely this is cause for celebration?
Indeed, it's just good to hear something that sounds positive for a change, and who knows - maybe we'll actually be playing Final Fantasy XV in 2016. Do you believe? Show us your cautious optimism in the comments section below.

Terribly sorry for going off topic but, the mobile site keeps crashing on me and sometimes won't even load... was there a change to the site's script or something?
Again, sorry for going off topic. @shogunrok @get2sammyb
@DominicanGlory Will notify @antdickens.
This is good, but Sony could also give us PS newbies all the main Final Fantasy games on PS4 Store. I played VII on PC, IV on DS and now I got X/X2 on PS4.
Come on though, I know we always talk about it having been announced a decade ago but reality is the original vision was canned and the game as is now has only been in serious development for what, 2-3 years? Once you get over that it's all pretty reasonable, and I'm glad to hear it's coming soon. Just hope it's decent, I can't say I fell in love with the demo, but that wouldn't be the first time (Dead Space!).
great news i hope it is out next year but i could wait until 2017 too
I'll believe it when I'm 65 hours in...
OOh Can't wait!
I hope that picture is not a recent release, because that looks horribly bland! Where's the texture on the grass?!
@Crimson_Ridley That one's taken from the Duscae demo. I don't think we've had any officially distributed pictures of the game since.
I better get back on the demo to see if I can grow to like the battle system, can't say I'm convinced by it yet
@kyleforrester87 I remember the demos for VIII & XII (didn't play the one for VII) being underwhelming so you're right - can't go by that. I'm hoping XV ends up being a return to form (I felt XIII got progressively worse with each release).
I'm just not going to care about anything related to this until there's a release date.
LIES. SQUISHY LIES!!!
Just kidding. I still find it hard to believe we'll be playing it next year, to be honest. But I'll admit that I'm more upbeat about the title with this news.
@kyleforrester87 I agree that the development time is pretty spot on for the current form of the game, it's just that even though the old game was scrapped, XV is still the same deal, so it's mostly because everyone is antsy for it to get finished.
I really hope this will be at least decent, and that they don't completely forget to add in actual party customization and whatnot.
Excited about this, but with the way Square has handled everything lately, I'll take a wait and see approach. Either way I am more excited for the FF7 remake and the new DQ.
Hmmm, might mean a Summer release then. Hopefully.
@Crimson_Ridley You are looking at the grass....... Hmmmmmmm it has great great draw distance it looks crisp and they still have a long time to go i saw worse looking games in their final stage. It has to be said when Im fighting huge monsters i rather have the grass look great then character and monsters and everything else......
