Final Fantasy 16

When Final Fantasy 16 was revealed during Sony’s recent PS5 showcase, several fans were taken aback. Not just because of its announcement or console exclusivity (which is reportedly timed) but because of how “complete” it looked. It’s likely because the game has reportedly been in development for longer than one may think.

Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier spoke to various individuals and revealed on the Triple Click podcast (around the 9:55 mark) that Final Fantasy 16 has been in development for four years. Schreier also said that it’s coming out sooner than expected. This doesn’t necessarily narrow down the release window (which hasn’t even been provided) but it does indicate that there won’t be a 10 year development cycle like Final Fantasy 15.

Final Fantasy 16 is currently slated to launch for PS5. Producer Naoki Yoshida, known for his work on Final Fantasy 14, said that the next big information reveal would be coming in 2021. Stay tuned in the meantime for more details.
