Final Fantasy 16 will arrive this year, it will not be delayed and it will come out a picture, says the producer of the game Naoki Yoshida. Read his statements, in this note!
After years of waiting, producer Naoki Yoshida, known as Yoshi-P, will have his chance to launch a game in the Final Fantasy saga created by him from scratch. Is about final fantasy 16 which will come exclusively to playstation 5 next June 22, and as confirmed by the author, this date is not touched. Bah, unless there is a cataclysm or something like that, one of those that are so frequent in the world of Final Fantasy.
“I know that Final Fantasy games can be delayed at the last minute.Yoshida said at a Final Fantasy 16 event in New York. On the other hand, he added:But unless a meteor hits Japan, there won’t be any delay..”
The curious thing about the words chosen by Yoshi-p is that exactly that, a falling meteorite, is more or less the plot of Final Fantasy 7… and that of Final Fantasy 14, a game that he took over and saved after he failed in his original incarnation from 12 years ago. Even FF15 had to be delayed two months so that the developers could polish details and FF7 Remake was delayed seven.
Industry delays, as was the case with the cyberpunk 2077 or Starfield, are the reason nobody takes release dates very seriously. However, Yoshi-p He said, about a year ago, that the game was ready and being polished to work properly. Let’s remember that they just gave the official release date in The Game Awards in December 2022.
final fantasy 16 was announced in 2020, and Square Enix revealed that the game had been delayed quite a bit due to the pandemic. At the time, Yoshi-P said that the idea was to launch in mid-2023. Said and done, the game will launch on June 22, 2023 for playstation 5. Supposedly, there is a version of pc on the way but we do not have details of when or how it will arrive.
