Cygames’ Granblue Fantasy Relink doesn’t have a release window yet, and with the next-generation coming fast, many have been wondering if it’ll actually come to PS4 as it was initially announced.
To shed some light on this question, Twinfinite asked director Tetsuya Fukuhara himself, who confirmed that he is “very sure” that Granblue Fantasy Relink will still be released on PS4.
That being said — while he made it clear that for now, it’s just a possibility — depending on the release timing, the game could get a cross-generation release on PS4 and PS5.
When asked to clarify whether it would be simply a PS4 release taking advantage of backward compatibility, or a proper dedicated launch on PS5, Fukuhara-san mentioned that the latter option is a possibility.
“It’s not decided at the moment, but there is a possibility that it would be a proper PS5 disk. In that case, it probably wouldn’t feature a big jump in visual quality and resolution, but it’d probably have a better frame rate and faster loading times. This is one possibility, but we’ll see in the future.”
