Today, during Square Enix’s Tokyo Game Show 2020 programming, Final Fantasy XVI Producer Naoki Yoshida shared a few interesting tidbits about the game.
First of all, we learn that a dedicated teaser site will come in late October revealing some info about the characters and the worldview of the game.
Yoshida-san also confirmed that the next sizable reveal will be in 2021.
We also hear that instead of a pre-rendered teaser, the team wanted to showcase something running in real-time, that’s why the graphics aren’t fully tuned or optimized just yet.
For now, we know that Final Fantasy XVI will release for PS5 and PC. No release window has been shared, and the PS5 console exclusivity has been explicitly described as temporary. The specific duration is unknown.
If you want to see more about Final Fantasy XVI, you can check out the original announcement trailer that Yoshida-san was talking about in today’s presentation.
At the moment, we don’t know exactly when the teaser site will go live, but we’ll let you know as soon as it pops up.
Incidentally, you should definitely read my article about how Final Fantasy XVI’s reveal seals the deal on Final Fantasy XIV’s success. Funnily, half of the time I want to write Final Fantasy XVI, I actually type XIV. This is going to be a challenge.
