During an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Square Enix’s Hiroshi Takai shared new information about Final Fantasy XVI. According to the game director, the PS5 RPG is 95% complete and a release date will be revealed later this year.
At the moment, the developers are “fixing some performance and rendering issues.” After that, the teams will be directed to polishing and bug-fixing, before beginning the final stages of planning – promotion, promotional materials, and preparation for release.
The executive also brought news about the campaign of Final Fantasy XVI. In all, six countries will be available for exploration, in a gameplay time that should last between 35h and 40h. If fans want to fulfill all the side missions, this duration should be extended to up to 70 hours.
Rated by Takai as the “true next step” for the future of the franchise, Final Fantasy XVI is coming in 2023 to PS5 and PC. A playable demo is planned to come out weeks before the definitive version.
