Tons of details on Final Fantasy 16 have dropped, including gameplay of the combat and Eikon battles. We also learned more about New Game Plus, Timely Support Accessories, the lack of difficulty options, a demo launching two weeks before the full game and much more. However, one interesting detail that flew under the radar is the engine.
In a recent preview video, Skill Up spoke to the development team about the engine and whether it was Luminous or Unreal Engine. “I asked if this was running in the Luminous Engine, and Square said ‘no,’ I asked if it was Unreal and they said ‘no.’ I asked what it was, and they refused to say.”
Many have speculated that it’s the same engine used in Final Fantasy 14, which is similar in structure to Luminous. The latter is known for its use in Final Fantasy 15 and the recent Forspoken, while Unreal Engine has been used for Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion.
Final Fantasy 16 launches on June 22nd worldwide for PS5. Unless a catastrophe strikes Square Enix, like a “meteor hitting our headquarters in Japan” as per producer Naoki Yoshida, there shouldn’t be any delays.
