HexaDrive is Helping Square Enix With Final Fantasy XV Development
We all know that Final Fantasy XV is being developed by Square Enix. The game has been in development for ages and developers are working hard to finish the game.
During the time of Final Fantasy Versus XIII, developers wanted to create something ambitious and set their sights high. However, they quickly got stuck in development hell and nothing was coming together. They needed all hands on deck and additional support for the development.
This is where HexaDrive comes-in, the developer of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Okami HD and others.
Square Enix, with some additional help, managed to get the project back on its feet and transformed it into what we now know as Final Fantasy XV. The project re-debut back at E3 2013, Director Hajime Tabata revealed during an interview that HexaDrive helped with the footage we saw at the event.
Tabata further revealed that both HexaDrive and Square Enix went to location scouting for the caves we saw during Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae demo. If you don’t know, Episode Duscae came bundled with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.
If you are thinking HexaDrive is the only outside firm working on the game, you’re wrong. At this year’s Taipei Game Show, Hajime Tabata said that XPEC Entertainment is among many outside developers helping out with the project.
From the looks of it, Final Fantasy XV is going to be the biggest FF game to date. The title is still without a release date but we know it will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
