Light blinded my eyes

Six countries divided

While The Snitch has proven to be very reliable with its leaks, we have to take the leaked Final Fantasy XVI release date with a grain of salt. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out when the latest installment in the series will be released, as the release date will be officially announced before the end of the month, as revealed by Naoki Yoshida himself last month.
I’m curious about the release date because it’s about to expire. Right now, it’s slated for “summer 2023,” but when do you think you’ll know the exact release date?
Yoshida : We plan to release the information again later this year, so I guess we can say that at that time. I don’t think it will be during the summer, so I guess it’s okay (laughs).
I have been accustomed to the online game development environment for the past few years, so I was a little surprised that I had to master it so quickly (bitter smile). If you’re thinking about producing physical discs, shipping them around the world, etc., it’s going to take several months of actual time after you’ve mastered it. When I say the development status is 90% and 50%, I think there will be voices saying “please release it immediately”, but there are such conditions…
Final Fantasy XVI launches on PlayStation 5 as a console exclusive for six months sometime during the summer of 2023.
