When the development team decided on whether Episode Prompto or Episode Ignis would be the second of the episodes to be released following Episode Gladiolus, the team ultimately chose to save Ignis's tale for last due to its impact in the main story of Final Fantasy XV, and as such had a longer development time and polish compared to the other DLC episodes.[2]
