Naoki Yoshida & Hiroshi Takai & Kazutoyo Maehiro talked about Final Fantasy 16. They talked about how the game is almost complete for PS5 and that Final Fantasy 16 will get a release date later this year.
Final Fantasy 16 is supposed to release in the summer of 2023. The developers talked about a release date confirmation later this year and if I was to take a guess, I would say that we will get an official confirmation on The Game Awards 2022. The devs mentioned that the game is about 95% ready for the PS5 and that people should not expect any delays in the release.
The devs also talked about the story and the content and revealed that the main storyline will take around 35-40 hours to complete while there is 70+ hours worth of side content that players can engage in. We learned that this is going to be the next step in the Final Fantasy franchise and that we can expect Final Fantasy 16 to be a truly next-generation game.
Furthermore, we learned that the game is going to include 6 countries. These could be the regions that players are able to explore but we have no confirmation regarding how many regions players will be able to check out.
Since Final Fantasy 16 is supposed to have a summer 2023 release date, I assume that it will release around June or July. But that is speculation at this point, so take this with a grain of salt until the official release date confirmation.
Let us know what you think about Final Fantasy 16 so far and whether or not you are interested in checking out the game when it comes out.
