Final Fantasy XV's cumulative shipment and digital sales have surpassed 6 million units, Square Enix announced. Although the publisher didn't provide further details about these numbers, it's an increase over the 5 million shipped units at launch.

Square Enix also announced that the upcoming Moogle Chocobo Carnival, which you can access by downloading the Holiday Pack or Holiday Pack+, kicks off on the 24th of January. This is a special in-game event that brings a themed festival to the city of Altissia for a limited time.

In addition, in a recent interview with Famitsu, Final Fantasy XV's director, Hajime Tabata, spoke about the game's reception and the team's plans for the game's future updates and DLC. According to Tabata, the team is currently focused on improving the scale and comfort in the latter part of game, a portion of Final Fantasy XV that was heavily criticized by some fans.

Tabata is planning to add time-limited mob hunts based on enemies from the original story as DLC. In terms of other additions, the team is looking into the option of allowing players to travel with some of the game's minor characters such as Iris and Aranea, something that has been asked a lot by fans.

Regarding the multiplayer expansion for Final Fantasy XV, Tabata said that he would like to include characters other than Noctis, Ignis, Gladiolus and Prompto. He admits he would like to add a avatar creation system to create your own character, something that would not be exclusive to the multiplayer as the team is currently investigating how to include it in the main scenario.

As for the story DLCs focused on Ignis, Gladiolus and Prompto, Tabata says that these quests will be separate from the main quest, but the team would like to make sure their story changes depending on how you play. He also admits he would like to release VR content for the game, but didn't provide further details.

Final Fantasy XV is out now on PS4 and Xbox One.
