An unofficial Final Fantasy XV twitter source posted a tweet that the game is expected to be the most expensive project developed by the Square Enix team. The game has been in production for 8 years now and earlier this month its been confirmed that voice over work is yet to begin.
Final Fantasy XV Rumored To Be The Most Expensive Square Enix Game

We reached out to the Final Fantasy XV twitter account to give us an estimated number, so we’ll definitely keep you updated on that.
According to the games director Tetsuya Nomua, the story inherited the foundation of the world of Final Fantasy XIII and Type Zero, and is rooted in the mythology of Fabula Nova Crystallis. The world itself is different and original because it has a more modern feel. The story is simple: about heroes that go to recover the crystal stolen by the enemy, but it mixes with the relationships between characters to create a plot appropriate to Final Fantasy.
If you haven’t stayed up to date with any news regarding the game check out an official interview with Tetsuya Nomura where he talks about the game, features, and where it is now. Its understandable that an eight year project would be the most expensive game they’ve ever made because no other game has been such a secret and took so long to make. According to Nomura, the characters in Final Fantasy XV are so unique and filled with rich backstory that it gives the game more of a cinema look. Let us know what you think about the rumor.
