Square Enix has announced that following the releases of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition and Final Fantasy XV Royal Edition earlier this year, Final Fantasy XV has now surpassed 8.1 million shipments and digital sales worldwide.

The Final Fantasy XV team set a goal of 10 million copies sold before it was released and while this seems unlikely to happen any time soon if it doesn't come to Nintendo Switch the game has earned Square Enix a lot of money that no doubt will be put into Luminious Productions' new IP.

So despite the 10 year development period of Versus XIII to XV and the platform change, engine change, director removal and many other issues it has clearly paid off.
