Final Fantasy 16 Producer Says They Don’t Want To Raise Expectations By Talking About The Game Prematurely

Final Fantasy 16

Last year saw the announcement of Final Fantasy 16, the next mainline entry from Square Enix’s legendary RPG series. It was a different looking type of game than we’re used to from the series, but it’s topping the most anticipated charts all the same. Overall, Square and those involved have been pretty quiet since that unveiling, and there’s a good reason for that.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Producer Naoki Yoshida spoke briefly about the relative silence on the game. He said that they didn’t want to say anything “half-baked” about the game at this point, because Square didn’t want to set some kind of expectation too early for fans. They prefer to reveal things in a manner that allows them to give the best idea of what the game will be.

“Each person will probably have their own sort of idea or image of what the next Final Fantasy should be,” he said. “Saying something half baked is definitely very high risk. If something gets spoken about, someone will pick it up on social and it starts to spread around and people will form expectations. So with ‘Final Fantasy 16,’ whenever we do reveal more information on it, we hope to show what kind of game it’s going to bring, and what kind of excitement we can bring.”

We do know that announcements for the game are planned for this year, but sounds like they are keeping it close to the vest for the time being. Final Fantasy 16 is set to come to PS5 at some point.
