As revealed via a video earlier this month, Final Fantasy XVI will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive for a six-month period. The RPG is slated for a release in the Summer of 2023 with producer Naoki Yoshida recently confirming that the final release date will be revealed before the end of the year.

"We plan to release the information again later this year, so I think we can say it at that time", the producer said when asked about the game's release date. "I don't think it's going to be over the summer, so I think it's okay ."

"I've been used to the development environment for online games for the past few years, so I was a little surprised that I had to master it so quickly (bitter smile). If you think about producing physical discs, shipping them all over the world, and so on, it takes several months of physical time after mastering up. When I say that the development status is 90% and 50%, I think there will be voices saying "Please release it immediately", but there are such circumstances..."

Final Fantasy XVI was officially announced last year during Sony’s PlayStation 5 showcase back in September of 2020.

Hosted by Geoff Keighley, The Game Awards 2022 will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The event will be streamed live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
