The long-awaited Granblue Fantasy: Relink is finally about to end its long development cycle. Japanese developer Cygames announced the same today on Twitter While also sharing a new trailer. Ultimately, we could see confirmation that Granblue Fantasy: Relink will be released sometime in 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
The game was originally known as Granblue Fantasy Project Re:Link, and was initially intended to be co-developed by PlatinumGames and Cygames. However, in February 2019, Cygames announced that they would take over all development of the game (now officially titled Granblue Fantasy: Relink).
In late 2020, Cygames announced a release date of 2022. However, the studio was forced to delay the game again until 2023, due to the pandemic.
An RPG at its core, Granblue Fantasy: Relink will allow players to control a group of NPCs or play with friends in online co-op (up to four players in total). Cygames did not say if cross-platform play is supported.
