Final Fantasy XVI was supposed to appear at Tokyo Game Show 2022, but as expected, Square Enix didn’t reveal any new footage from the game during that event. That being said, the producer behind the game Naoki Yoshida has revealed that we can expect a new trailer for the game “next month or so”.
As reported by Gematsu, when Yoshida took the stage to accept the Tokyo Game Show 2022 Future Division award on behalf of Square Enix, he had the chance to answer a few questions about Final Fantasy XVI. When Yoshida was asked about his previous promise of new game information coming in the fall of 2022, the producer revealed that we can expect a new trailer around next month.
“I haven’t had a chance to speak to the marketing or PR teams at all, so I don’t know what I’m allowed to say, but I think we can probably release the next trailer. month or more.” Yoshida said. “And after that, I hope to be able to give a rough idea of the release date.”
This likely means the new trailer could narrow the game’s release window from summer 2023 to a certain month in the summer. But also, this could be a hint of an upcoming PlayStation or Square Enix showcase probably in October 2022 as there is no big festival or showcase planned for next month yet.
Naoki Yoshida is the director and producer of Final Fantasy XIV, an incredibly popular MMO in the Final Fantasy franchise that was revived a few years ago thanks to the groundbreaking Shadowbringers expansion. Yoshida’s presence as the producer behind Final Fantasy XVI has already been a heartwarming message to all fans.
Sony already had a brief State of Play showcase this month, during which we got to see the next project from Yakuza developers as well as a new open-world game from Team Ninja. Additionally, Sony has unveiled a brand new trailer for God of War Ragnarök.
