Final Fantasy 15 was released on PS4 and Xbox One in November 2016. The game was originally unveiled at E3 2006 as the PS3-exclusive Final Fantasy Versus 13, which was to form part of the Fabula Nova Crystallis series of titles that were based around the world of Final Fantasy 13.
While few details on the game were released over the next few years, Square Enix ultimately announced at E3 2013 that the game had been revamped into the newly-titled Final Fantasy 15. Apparently, Final Fantasy Versus 13 had only reached around 25 percent complete by the time it was scrapped.
While the basic premise remained the same, including some of the characters and locations, many elements were changed or removed outright. In particular, the character of Stella was dropped from the final version of the game.
Square Enix later admitted that Final Fantasy 15 was seen as the series’ last chance during development. Fortunately, the game not only released to impressive reviews, but also became the fastest-selling entry in the venerable role-playing game franchise to date.
