The individual listed that he is currently working under the “technology and outsourcing focused management.” “Final Fantasy XV” was mentioned specifically along with other video games being worked on by the Square Enix 1st Production Department studio.

Square Enix does have some history in outsourcing development of certain elements to external studios in regards to the “Final Fantasy” series. For example, Tri-Ace (the company best known for the “Star Ocean” franchise) helped in the production of “Final Fantasy XIII-2.”

“Final Fantasy XV” appears to be an ambitious project given its history. The project was originally called “Final Fantasy Versus XIII” when it was announced at E3 2006 for the Playstation 3. The video game would be re-announced with a new name for the PS4 and Xbox One at last year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Tetsuya Nomura is teaming with Hajime Tabata to co-direct “Final Fantasy XV.” The PS4 and Xbox One video game does not have a formal release date announced, suggesting that the development is still far from completion. You can take a look at the latest mainline installment from the “Final Fantasy” series in the gallery to the left of this article.
