'Final Fantasy 15' News & Updates: Director Hajime Tabata Unhappy With Early Spoilers!

"Final Fantasy 15" has only been out for a day around the world. Because some people either got early access to the game (such as reviewers for reputed gaming publications) or are really just fast, hardcore gamers, they've managed to beat the game faster than most players. And because they know what happens before the rest of the world does, it's no surprise that they might inadvertently spoil the story for the others.

"Final Fantasy 15" game director Hajime Tabata is reportedly very unhappy with these people spoiling the game on the internet even before the title came out, reports GamePur. It seems as though Tabata is really, really upset with these spoilers because he feels it might wreak havoc on the game's sales; in fact, he's trying to figure out a way for Square Enix to deal with it. In Japanese culture, spoilers are called netabare and are just as frowned upon over there.

However, it seems as though there's absolutely no reason for Tabata to worry. Despite a lot of early reviews coming in for the game, "Final Fantasy 15" is the fastest-selling game in the series. It's already sold 5 million copies around the world, according to GameSpot, achieving the fastest start in the entire series, and it's not even the end of the first week. Tabata claimed earlier that Square Enix wanted the game to sell 10 million copies, and it looks like it's on route to achieving more than that.

"Final Fantasy 15" is now available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One around the world. There are, as of now, no plans yet to port the game over to PC, as next-gen releases "Final Fantasy 13" and "Final Fantasy 14" were. Tabata claims that it's a likely possibility in the near future, but Square Enix is not yet prioritizing a PC port.
