During Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV 2nd anniversary stream they shared a letter from the game's director, Hajime Tabata, who officially announced his resignation from Square Enix and the newly-formed Luminous Studios.

Final Fantasy XV producer Yuji Shinoda and Final Fantasy XV "Episode Ardyn" DLC director Takefumi Terada announced in a "special program" on Thursday that Square Enix is producing an anime short based on the "Episode Ardyn" DLC, titled "Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn - Prologue".

The Lion Air 737 Max 8 speared into the coastal waters off Java on October 29, just 13 minutes after takeoff. Images distributed on social media showed passengers on the runway observing the broken part of the plane.

Final Fantasy XV's DLC plans were extensive, and the Comrades multiplayer, which is set to release on 13th December, will now be spun off into a standalone game called FFXV: Multiplayer Comrades with 10 new bosses, more costumes and weapons. Existing DLC for Final Fantasy XV will see a price drop. "The desire is to deliver this new AAA experience to everyone even a day [sic] sooner, and due to this directional change, the company made a decision to focus our resources on the development of this AAA title". According to Eurogamer, Tabata was given the option of turning Luminous Productions into one of Square Enix's regular business divisions, or spin it off into a separate company with investment from the publisher. However, no further details were divulged on what this new title is. Final Fantasy XV was considered a success, but this news does put an abrupt end to the for future episode DLCs planned for the game. It wasn't all bad news, however, as the multiplayer expansion Comrades will be getting a standalone release next month and a crossover quest with Final Fantasy XIV will be added into the game in December as well.

Final Fantasy XV released in 2016 with a season pass containing extra content, but season pass holders won't be missing out, as it appears everything that was promised has been released.
