Final Fantasy XV producer Yuji Shinoda and Final Fantasy XV "Episode Ardyn" DLC director Takefumi Terada announced in a "special program" on Thursday that Square Enix is producing an anime short based on the "Episode Ardyn" DLC, titled "Final Fantasy XV Episode Ardyn - Prologue".

In a surprising and drastic move, Square Enix have chose to can the production of more DLC for Final Fantasy XV and write off the costs of its production, as they look to point Luminous Productions toward creating new AAA games.

Final Fantasy XV's DLC plans were extensive, and the Comrades multiplayer, which is set to release on 13th December, will now be spun off into a standalone game called FFXV: Multiplayer Comrades with 10 new bosses, more costumes and weapons.

2019 was supposed to hold the Dawn of the Future expansion series, featuring Episode Ardyn, Episode Aranea, Episode Lunafreya, and Episode Noctis.

According to Akio Ofuji, brand director of Final Fantasy XV, the new IP being developed by Luminous Productions is still being worked on, and he hopes fans look forward to it. However, no further details were divulged on what this new title is.

On December 13, the season pass for the console version of Final Fantasy XV is getting a price drop, it'll cost $14.99 United States dollars.

During the stream, Square Enix explained that due to a "directional change" within the company, resources from the DLCs were being reassigned to working on a new AAA title.

Meanwhile, it was announced that Final Fantasy XV's multiplayer component Comrades will get standalone editions on Xbox One and PS4, though no specific mention was made of PC. Once it does go live, the game mode in the main Final Fantasy XV game will no longer be playable, players will instead have to download Comrades separately. More info on that is here, but you can see the trailer for Episode Ardyn below.
