According to an interview from Dengeki Online, Final Fantasy XV’s roadmap of DLC episodes will continue until at least 2019.
In the interview, director Hajime Tabata and game designer Takefumi Terada discuss the current three-episode plan for the remainder of 2018, starting with the announced Episode Ardyn. While working on that, Tabata realized they wanted to do more content for the game, and added a fourth episode to the docket.
That means that all four episodes spread out will go through 2018 and into 2019. As for future content beyond that, it’s undecided.
Final Fantasy XV’s previous DLC episodes – Episode Gladiolus, Episode Prompto, and Episode Ignis – have been released as part of the game’s season pass, while the next four episodes should be part of the second season pass, though they have yet to be extensively detailed.
Final Fantasy XV is re-releasing as Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition, containing the first game’s DLC and multiplayer expansion, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and for the first time on PC on March 6. Square-Enix revealed today that Steam pre-orders and early purchases for the game will receive a Gordon Freeman skin for Noctis. There will also be a free PC demo on February 26.
