Final Fantasy 16 won’t be delayed ‘unless a meteor falls on Japan’


FinalFantasy 16 will be released on June 22 on PlayStation 5, and with only a few months to go until the arrival of the action-oriented role-playing game, producer Naoki Yoshida is confident in that date.

“I know Final Fantasy games can be postponed at the last minute,” Yoshida said in translated comments at a press event for Last fantasy 16 held in New York earlier this month, but “unless a meteor falls on Japan, there will be no delay.”

Although Yoshida didn’t mention the name outright other Final Fantasy games he was referring to, it was an oblique reference to the most recent mainline entries in the series: FinalFantasy 15 And Final Fantasy 7 Remake. In 2016, Square Enix announced just six weeks early FinalFantasy 15‘s planned launch, that it delayed the game for another two months. Game director Hajime Tabata apologized for the delay, which Square Enix said needed polishing. The situation with Final Fantasy 7 Remake was similar; in early 2020, Square Enix delayed the remake for another seven weeks after fixing a release date.

Those delays are probably why Square Enix never offered a firm release date FinalFantasy 16 for so long. The publisher finally set the game’s June release date in December at The Game Awards.

FinalFantasy 16 was originally announced in September 2020. The game’s development was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Yoshida said in 2021, and the publisher seemed overly cautious about targeting a release window until the following year, when a release in the summer of 2023 was announced. subscribed.

Last fantasy 16 will, barring a catastrophic disaster, come to PlayStation 5 in June. A PC version was previously announced, but has no release window.
