Chapter 13 was the most speculated section of Final Fantasy XV. This chapter looked to transition the game from open world to a linear gameplay. Fans thought the development and production of this update was rushed. But the game’s director Hajime Tabata had other thoughts about it. He said,
The direction of chapter 13’s content was a deliberate decision made by the development team. That said, the amount of stress inflicted on the player while running through this chapter was greater than we had anticipated. We believe resolving this issue will naturally lead to a better gameplay experience.
Tabata assures better gameplay to be available soon. After playing an open world and having multiple options to explore, bringing the linear format would be a mental let down. Hence, it was a wise decision made by the director.
The chapter 13 will be available on March 28.
