A prominent leaker seems to be suggesting (in rather cryptic fashion) that an imminent announcement will set a June 2023 launch for the RPG.
Producer and host Geoff Keighley has revealed that Square Enix's Naoki Yoshida will be attending the show for "a very special live presentation."
Square Enic previously said that Final Fantasy 16 is nearing the end of development, with a release date announcement likely coming before the end of the year.
Taking place on December 8th, this year's awards could have some big announcements and reveals. Here are 15 rumored to occur.
In a largely unchanged top 10, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Final Fantasy 16 rank high in the Famitsu charts again.
A new report has claimed that Square Enix will be showing off a new trailer for Final Fantasy 16 either on December 7 or 8, which will also likely reveal the game's release date.
Both games have ranked high in Famitsu's latest weekly charts for the most highly anticipated upcoming games.
Several new details have emerged on Square Enix's highly-anticipated RPG.
A new PlayStation 5 ad has revealed that Square Enix's upcoming RPG Final Fantasy 16's exclusivity period will end 6 months after its launch.
Square Enix says that it intends to release a trial version of its upcoming PS5 RPG, and it'll happen not long before the game's full launch.
Director Hiroshi Takai also promises "plenty of optional content" throughout the story, bringing total playtime to the "70-hour mark or so."
Last week's No. 1 game, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, drops back down to second place as Square Enix's RPG retakes the lead.
Upon completing the story once, players can carry over equipment, abilities, and levels into a new playthrough with tougher enemies.
"The current situation is that we play through the game day by day, tweak the rough parts, and brush up the parts that have flaws in performance or drawing," says director Hiroshi Takai.
This character is "Strong, yet flawed. Brave, yet full of doubt," and her relationship with Clive affects him throughout the story.
There are a variety of activities like resource gathering, Elite Marks to hunt, and "situations" where Clive must fight without Eikon powers.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which was last week's No. 2, has fallen down to the fourth spot in the latest charts.
Barnabas Tharmr rose through the ranks in Waloed and is skilled with a blade. Dion Lesage is the crown prince of Sanbreque and leads the dragoons.
The development team is focused on "debugging, tweaking, polishing, and optimization" en route to its Summer 2023 release.
The world is dying, and its various kingdoms, outlined in the new trailer, go to war to claim the "fading light" of the Crystals.
