Final Fantasy XV Avoids Huge Day One Patch by … Delaying Release by Two Months

It's one or the other, really.

Game development is hard—almost as hard as keeping fans happy. In the case of Final Fantasy XV, the game has been delayed to make sure it's fully polished and doesn't require a patch on its launch day to make it suitably playable, which you may remember from a bygone era as "how game development works."

Got 50 hours to finish a video game? How about several titles of that length, all stacking up in your to-do list? The game industry has shifted towards long open-world games, but they're forgetting that there's still something very powerful—and fun—about a 10-hour game with a great narrative.
