Yep, Square Enix is worried that the latest addition to the Final Fantasy series is too long.
The boss of Square Enix himself Hajime Tabata stated in the recent interview with Kotaku that they were trying to keep the complete length of final fantasy under or about 40 hours long.
But keeping the game at that length seems to be getting "harder and harder" as they continue to add more content .He said that at the moment the team was working on a "work around" the problem is because if the game is too lengthy it might be "too much for players."
With all due respect, but what is he talking about? Since when are Final Fantasy developers concerned about the length of their game, Some RPG fans might be turned off as well most RPG are indeed without a shadow of a doubt lengthy adventures and story.
This just proves that Square Enix is marketing FFXV more as an action game with RPG elements like many games coming out left and right rather than going to its roots and being an RPG with action elements. Hardcore fans are again gonna feel disillusionment.
