The developers at Square Enix have been working on the upcoming Final Fantasy 16 for a long time. This has been revealed by games journalist Jason Schreier, who has brought to light exclusive events behind the scenes in studios in the past.

It wasn't until mid-September that Final Fantasy 16 – the much anticipated sequel to the iconic JRPG franchise – was revealed. Accordingly, the hopes for an early release date are rather cautious. Because there are sometimes years between disclosure and publication in the games industry. But one man supposedly knows better: Jason Schreier, the games journalist who has already published countless industry information, such as the chaotic development of Anthem and the stony path of Dragon Age 4. If you believe him, the release of Final is Fantasy 16 not as far away as you think.

Schreier has this information about the publication in the podcast Triple Click revealed. In it he says more precisely: "I've heard from people who are familiar with the game's development that it's been in development for at least four years. So it's coming sooner than people think."


Trailer for FF16 supports Schreier's statements

Waiting Final Fantasy fans should be pretty pleased. Because between the beginning of the development of Final Fantasy 15 in 2006 and its release in 2016 there is a proud ten years. The blockbuster RPG had gone through many changes, which made the exact development time more difficult to guess. The extensive gameplay trailer for Final Fantasy 16 speaks for Schreier's claim. While many AAA productions are first revealed with a teaser video or a few game scenes, Final Fantasy 16 is already showing itself in detail. Although we see a lot of cutscenes in the trailer, there is also a lot of gameplay material:
