Following the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event last week, Square Enix had pre-orders for the game’s Ultimate Collector’s Edition version, which didn’t take long to sell out. Director Hajime Tabata tweeted that they might produce more copies for the fans that didn’t get fortunate enough to grab one on time.
Here’s what was tweeted out earlier this morning:
Hello, Tabata here.
I’m truly grateful for those of you who checked out Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV.
Things were as exciting as can be at the event, but I heard that those of you in Japan also got excited along with the long TV commercial. Again, the Platinum Demo has received a large number of downloads, and we truly thank you for that!
And by the pre-orders for the Ultimate Collector’s Edition vanished in a flash, and we’ve received plenty of voices from those that weren’t able to acquire it. We are terribly sorry about that. At the moment, we’re continuing with internal coordination to see if we can somehow increase its production. We will make an announcement as soon as there’s any progress!”
Again, I’d like to let you know that we will follow protocol to handle what appears to be unusual orders that may seem like they were made for resale purposes. Once more, thank you for your continued support of Final Fantasy XV!
Final Fantasy XV will release worldwide on September 30, 2016 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
