PS5 Exclusive Final Fantasy XVI Will Get A Major Reveal In Spring Of 2022, Development Has Been Delayed

Final Fan­ta­sy XVI pro­duc­er Nao­ki Yoshi­da says the game’s next big reveal will come this Spring. Yoshi­da orig­i­nal­ly claimed the infor­ma­tion would come lat­er this year, but com­pli­ca­tions from COVID-19 has caused the game to be delayed by almost half a year.

The devel­op­ment team is made up of employ­ees from across the world, and in order to off­set covid, these employ­ees had to work from home. “This has unfor­tu­nate­ly ham­pered com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the Tokyo office, which, in turn, has led to delays in–or in extreme cas­es, can­cel­la­tions of—asset deliv­er­ies from our out­source part­ners,” Yoshi­da explained.

Despite this large hur­dle, Yoshi­da hopes the team will have min­i­mal impact at the start of the new year. They are work­ing on increas­ing graph­ic resource qual­i­ty, refin­ing com­bat mechan­ics, flesh­ing out indi­vid­ual bat­tles, touch­ing up cutscenes, and increas­ing graph­i­cal optimization.

At this point, the goal is to put Final Fan­ta­sy XVI into the teams hands and give them as much time as pos­si­ble to ful­ly pol­ish the game before its release. You can check out Yoshi­da’s full state­ment below:

As of right now, lit­tle is known about Final Fan­ta­sy XVI, except for the names of three char­ac­ters: Clive, Joshua, and Jill. It’s also been con­firmed that this title will be more action ori­ent­ed. It will launch for the PlaySta­tion 5 as a timed con­sole exclu­sive. Oth­er plat­form releas­es have not been announced yet.
