Tetsuya Nomura On FFXV: 'It Was The Company's Decision'

Written by Lauren — 25 Sep 2014

Many speculated whether or not Tetsuya Nomura would've been able to handle the development of both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV. Nomura has finally broken the silent over his recent departure from Final Fantasy XV in an interview with Famitsu.

"It was the company's decision, I can't say anything more than that," said Nomura. The new director Hajime Tabata, however, has tried his best to ensure fans that he will be keeping in line with Nomura's vision for the game.

Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV are currently in development for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You can read up on any information you might have missed on Final Fantasy XV from TGS 2014 here.

We wish both Tabata and Nomura well with their respective projects.
