Tabata talks about the bugs of Final Fantasy XV Judgment Disc demo
We all thought that Final Fantasy XV would be ready for the Sept. 30, however, director of the game, Hajime Tabata, decided to delay the game until November, because he wanted to polish the the adventure of Noctis as much as possible. Now, with the new release of the demo of Judgment Disc, players start to have doubts, because they have found some glitches in their way, though none breaking the game.
In this situation, Tabata spoke on Twitter to dispel any concern. “We took two months to completely get rid of bugs,” said the director. “The fact that we are getting high praise for the demo can be said to be the fruit of our labor.”
Although this is a simple demo, Square Enix said that it was a fragment of the Gold version, that is, the same content will be available in stores. The bugs are not large, but some allows to travel to areas outside the map and others such as lighting bugs. Seen in some way, it could be interesting mistakes.
Clearly it is not about glitches that may corrupt the game, as Tabata mentioned that Square Enix eliminated most bugs, but there is likely to still remain some unresolved situation that could be solved with a future patch.
“Even so, while it is difficult to fix everything down to the smallest bugs, we will deal with it via an amendment patch. Since it is impossible to get rid of the bugs in an open-world game in short time with our current technology, please understand that we will fix them at a steady pace.”
He mentioned that “freedom-of-play gameplay style offers huge variation,” especially when compared with the linear titles in the series. “And while there are sets of rules as to how you play, the combination of the things you can do in the open-world is too great for our own understanding,” he continued.
Consequently, surely we will receive a patch for the game’s release to fix these bugs, hoping that those which broke the game are completely fixed. Remember that this time the patch is not only served to eliminate bugs, it was also useful to improve the performance of the title.
Final Fantasy XV will debut on November 29 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
