(FF16) Final Fantasy XVI – Development Gets Delayed. More News Coming Spring 2022

Game News PS5 News

The development for the upcoming title in the Final Fantasy series has been officially delayed, with a further announcement regarding the game now to be revealed in spring 2022.

Things were going quite smoothly, or so it would seem, with the basic development having been completed. However, due to the still on-going COVID pandemic that has been sweeping the world for around 2 years now things have had to be put on hiatus.

In a recent message from Producer Naoki Yoshida, the team were hoping to release more information regarding the game at a later time during the 2021 period. However, unfortunately that is no longer going to happen and since we are clearly almost into a brand new year, it is perhaps not really a big surprise any more.

What is worse is that Naoki Yoshida also went on to state that the development for the game has been delayed by almost a year and a half. With many of the Square Enix staff being forced to work from home, which as perhaps expected has hampered with procedures and communication.

The news regarding the delay came from the official Final Fantasy XVI Twitter channel

Final Fantasy XVI still does not have an official release date but is expected to release on the Playstation 5.
