Square Enix has reportedly delayed highly anticipated role-playing game Final Fantasy 15 to Nov. 29, 2016, according to a report from Gamnesia, citing retail materials. GameStop stores have reportedly been mailed stickers showing the new date.

The game was previously scheduled for release on Sept. 30, a date that was announced earlier this year with great fanfare at an event called Uncovered: Final Fantasy 15.

If accurate, the two-month delay may come as a disappointment for fans, who have already endured a roughly 10-year wait for Final Fantasy 15. Square Enix originally revealed the game as Final Fantasy Versus 13 in 2006 but later renamed it Final Fantasy 15.

Polygon contacted Square Enix about the rumored delay on Friday, but the company has not responded to requests for confirmation. Online retailers, including GameStop, currently still list a Sept. 30 release date.

Square Enix has released a pair of demos for Final Fantasy 15Episode Duscae and the Platinum Demo, to tide fans over. The game also has a number of cross media tie-ins and companion games, including computer animated film Kingsglaive, a virtual reality experience for PlayStation VR and mobile game Justice Monsters Five.

Final Fantasy 15 is bound for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version has not been announced.
