At the end of the Square-Enix live stream event yesterday, new was dropped about how long the story of Final Fantasy XV was going to be. It was answered by FFXV director Hajime Tabata, who was doing fan questions when story length came up.
“In terms of clearing the main story, we’re anticipating about 40-50 hours of gameplay,” said Tabata. “At the very least there will be 40 hours of content to enjoy. But there are a lot of side quests and other extra things. With just the extra stuff alone, we’re looking at maybe 100 hours of gameplay. So if you count all of that, maybe we’re looking at around 200 hours of gameplay.”
“A lot of fans have been waiting quite a while for this game, so we wanted to make sure there’s a lot of content for them to enjoy,” said Tabata.
Final Fantasy XV releases September 30th, 2016.
