Come Final Fantasy 16 on the market for the PS5 as early as 2021? It seems like the development of the RPG is quite advanced.
When is Final Fantasy 16 coming?
The well-informed games journalist and industry insider Jason Schreier said that he said Final Fantasy 16 has been in development for at least four years. Hence, he suspects that it will appear earlier than some may believe.
Schreier explains, "I've heard from people who are familiar with the development of the game that it has been in development for at least four years in some way, so it's coming faster than people think."
So it would be quite possible that we can expect the release of FF16 in 2021 on the PS5. This has not yet been confirmed by Square Enix. When the game was presented, there was no indication of a release date.
Square Enix even seems to confirm that the development of the RPG is at an advanced stage. "The exclusive material, which consists of a mixture of battles and intermediate sequences rendered in real time, shows only a fraction of what our team has been able to achieve since they started developing this new Final Fantasy game," said the Team.
However, Game Director Hiroshi Takai also said: "From setting up a completely new development environment to learning the pros and cons of the PS5, the team and I took on countless challenges during our journey to bring you the sixteenth chapter of the fabled Final Fantasy Brand. And although we put our hearts and souls into this project every day, it may still take some time before you get your hands on it. But I promise you, the wait will be worth it! "
So when we can expect the release of Final Fantasy 16 is unclear.
