    No. The first season pass sold extremely well from what I remember, it was why we were getting the second season pass.

    Guys, the streaming is live now and they're still announcing other stuff

    It' wasn't "All the DLC are canceled and Tabata was fired. Bye"

    It's a fucking terrible look that the two episodes that would have presumably had female leads were cancelled.

    It happens.
    Some directors walk out on projects that barely started so they can do their own thing. It's easier to leave when things are still in an early phase.

    Jeff Sessions "resigned" today too.

    Resigning is often a political move. With the way this is being handled, he was forced to resign.

    It really was a bad investment. That's why nomura and co had to jump from it with KH3, and they seem to be doing pretty well.

    What are you talking about?

    On the one hand, I didn't like any of Tabata's games and I don't think he had any clue how to tell a story. On the other, this is a big departure, especially since he basically took his old team off and made his own studio.

    I'm not going to get into the silly speculation over his resignation because I think that stuff gets pretty spiteful and shitty (which we've already seen in this thread) but I do wonder what'll happen to Luminous Studio and their new IP now. No matter what, they'll have to promote someone to take his place but I wouldn't be surprised if they folded the studio back into Business Division 2 as well. I guess we'll see.

    It'll also be interesting to see who's funding his new studio. Bandai Namco would be my first guess.

    Holy shit, this isn't a joke? Daaamn!

    Honestly, both news are shocking. The cancellation of the last three DLC episodes stings a lot, too. Out of all the new DLC episodes, including Ardyn, I was very curious what they were going to do with episodes Luna and Noctis in particular. A real shame.

    Sales wise sure can't decide yet but I mean by damged is it's quality, again the sales doesn't mean everyone loves it, there are many many FF fans who were not ok with this game and feel betrayed, it's been going downhill since the release of XIII, if they continue like this next game will get even worse scores, not to mention the absolutely disgusting dlcs practice that they have been doing with this game, I still can't believe many are ok with it.

    I like some tabata games but this wasn't a good example of his work, crisis core where he actually shined.

    Pretty surprised since XV, even with all its problems, was still a successful product that came out from a project that seemed very troubled for a very long time, and Tabata gets the credit for that.

    Would love to see Yoshi P or Yoko Taro take a shot at the main series. Either someone who will make a very faithful game or someone who will take it the weirdest it’s ever gone, either extreme is good with me.

    Thanks for saving FFXV, and probably the franchise, Tabata. The game certainly has issues stemming from its long development, but the fact that it was turned around at all is kind of a miracle.

    Ok I'm gonna be second hand pissed if tabata got flak for FFXV internally but Nomura didn't. Tabata actually delivered a working game. Tabata was robbed.
     
  41. FFXV is the second-highest selling game in the franchise. The franchise is fine.

    Betting there is no new IP from Luminous Productions. They're gonna make a Final Fantasy.

    Timeline and this development just makes sense. They literally set up a new company this year. They announced all these plans about completing Final Fantasy XV DLC and then finally moving on to their new IP. Tabata mentioned in some of his interviews that he was keen on developing his own IP and didn't seem like he was keen on making another Final Fantasy game. I believe he even mentions FFXVI in one interview and says someone else will be making it.

    Now suddenly they've done a huge about turn. They've cancelled the DLC and are changing direction entirely. Their reason being that they want to divert all resource to their new project in order to get it out even a day sooner. Now it's unlikely the DLC was costing $33 million so they obviously cancelled whatever other stuff they were doing too. That would explain that loss.

    I'm betting LP is going to make Final Fantasy. No new IP or anything.
