Final Fantasy 16 Release Date
To get right to the point, The Game Awards in December 2022 confirmed that Final Fantasy 16 will come out on June 22, 2023. You can watch the trailer for the game’s story and gameplay below.
For all its depth, the first Final Fantasy 16 trailer didn’t reveal the game’s release window. We got a second trailer in early June 2022, which confirmed that the game will come out in Summer 2023 and gave us a time frame for when to expect it.
There are a number of highly anticipated games coming out this year. Our coverage will tell you everything you need to know about their release:
- Star Wars: Jedi Survivor Release Date – When Will It Come Out?
- Pokémon Go Plus+ Confirmed Release Date Out, What’s New?
We also know a lot about the people who are making the game. It’s being produced by Naoki Yoshida and directed by Hiroshi Takai, who both played a big role in Final Fantasy 14’s rebirth and renewed success, which is still going strong today.
It looks like their success has landed them the best job possible, which is to be in charge of a new mainline game. On the platform side of things, we know that the game will be a PlayStation exclusive, at least for a while, and will only be available on the PS5.
