Square Enix released Final Fantasy XV back in 2016, so if you think that maybe it’s about time that the company follow up with a sequel, you’ll be happy to hear that during Sony’s PS5 announcement, Final Fantasy XVI was announced alongside it as well, although not much is known about the game at the moment.
According to the announcement, the next information reveal about the upcoming game will be revealed in 2021, which means that we won’t be able to expect the game to be released this year. While there’s a chance that it could be released next year, you probably shouldn’t hold your breath until more information is made available.
The game will be directed by Hiroshi Takai who said, “From the establishment of an all new development environment, to learning the ins-and-outs of the PlayStation 5, the team and I have taken on countless challenges during our journey to bring you the sixteenth chapter in the storied Final Fantasy franchise.”
He adds, “And though we’re pouring our hearts and souls into this project each and every day, it may still be some time before we can get it into your hands. However, I promise it will be worth the wait!” The game is currently set to be exclusive to the PlayStation platform, but there are plans to eventually bring it onto the PC as well.
