In a surprising and drastic move, Square Enix have made a decision to can the production of more DLC for Final Fantasy XV and write off the costs of its production, as they look to point Luminous Productions toward creating new AAA games. All except Episode Ardyn have been cancelled, with Ardyn still planned for its March 2019 release.

World of Final Fantasy Maxima makes use of the Avatar Change System, enabling players to transform into legendary heroes from throughout Final Fantasy history, including FF VII protagonist Cloud Strife, Yuna from Final Fantasy X, the regal prince Noctis of Final Fantasy XV fame, and loads more.

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.

Ofuji stated that the reason for the cancellation was due to Square Enix deciding to focus its efforts in the production of a new "AAA" title, with development headed by its new subsidiary studio Luminous Productions. However, no further details were divulged on what this new title is. Only hours prior to the announcement Square Enix Holdings reported an "extraordinary loss" in finances through Luminous Productions - amounting to 3,733 million yen. What do you think of today's announcements from Square Enix?

In addition, Square Enix confirmed Tabata's departure through a written statement. "As production of Episode Ardyn continues and Luminous Productions works on new projects, I felt that it was time for me to hand over the torch to the next-generation group of talented and trustworthy colleagues and believe that they will create something awesome", Tabata added.

Earlier this year, Square Enix formed a new AAA development studio known as Luminous Studios, moving Tabata and a large portion of the Final Fantasy XV development team over.
