Posted on the Final Fantasy Forums (translated by Gematsu), "Final Fantasy XV" is out of its beta and is playable from start to finish.
A programmer by the name of Kitade commented on the status of the game:
We’re at the point where we can play the game in its entirety from start to finish. From this, everyone on the development team can get an overall view on the game.
The first half of the game is finished with the quality of a final product, and you get the sense you’re playing it in its final form.
It seems that the only thing left to work is to polish the game and work on balancing the gameplay. "Final Fantasy XV" is rumored to finally complete development and to be released some time in 2016.
