Sony’s next State of Play live stream of PlayStation 5 games will take place on Wednesday, March 9, the company announced today. It didn’t say what will be shown, but Sony teased new revelations and updates from “beloved Japanese publishers”. Are we finally getting a release date for Final Fantasy XVI?
The latest Nintendo Direct-style State of Play will go live at 5 p.m. ET and runs for about 20 minutes. It will also have a “special focus on highlighting great games coming from some of our beloved Japanese publishers,” as well as “a few updates from other developers around the world,” Sony wrote in a PlayStation blog post.
This certainly sounds like the perfect time for Square Enix to give us a deeper dive into the next mainline final fantasy Game. As a PS5 exclusive Final Fantasy XVI was first revealed at a PS5 event in September 2020earlier, former kotaku Editor Jason Schreier reports on the Triple click podcast that the game had already been in development for about four years.
We’ve only seen the original action-packed announcement trailer in the years since, but the director Naoki Yoshida later confirmed this The game would focus on the story, which fans are also anticipating. And despite a six-month delay due to Covid-19, Yoshida confirmed the game was available last December next big reveal would be in “spring 2022”.
As a screamer pointed out last monthhowever, Square Enix’s Creative Business Unit III is in charge of oversight FFXIV, directs the game. With the massive endwalker Having only recently launched the extension after several delays, it is possible to a FFXVI The release date could be even further away than some hope. If it comes out sometime in 2023 or beyond, it would be the longest gap between new entries in the series’ history.
So what else could we see at State of Play on Wednesday? Here are some other more speculative possibilities, in order of increasing nonsense:
If Sony were to show anything related to any of the above projects, this week’s State of Play would be a much bigger event than other recent live streams. Current shows deepened Gran Turismo 7 and GhostWire: Tokyo, known amounts first revealed years ago. A Final Fantasy XVI Release date would be great, but we’ll probably get more trailers GhostWire: Tokyo and Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin instead of this.
