Tentative domestic release date for Final Fantasy X revealed

[01.23.01] » Japanese delays aside, Square still hopes to bring Final Fantasy X stateside in 2001.

    At its highly talked about strategy conference, Square took a brief break from its barrage of project announcements to discuss the speculated future sales of Final Fantasy X. While commenting on the effects that the recent delay the game saw in Japan would have in relationship to sales in the east, Square mentioned that it still planned to release Final Fantasy X in America this same year. With a tentative release date of late November, Final Fantasy X would arrive in America a mere four months after its July Japanese release. While four months may seem rather short, Final Fantasy IX had the same turn-around time, including the same release months. Square also shared some optimistic sales figures: the company is expecting sales of Final Fantasy X in the United States to fall into a lofty range of 1.4 to 1.8 million copies. Projected European figures weren't far behind, with Square predicting 1.2 to 1.5 million copies sold there.
