Final Fantasy XVI’s Development Has Been Delayed With New Information Coming In 2022

Square Enix and the game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida, have announced that development on Final Fantasy XVI has been delayed by at least half a year and that no new information will arrive by the end of 2021 as initially promised.

In a statement shared to Twitter, Yoshida-san describes the challenges involved in developing during a pandemic to be the primary cause for the game’s delayed production. He (quite candidly) shared that the larger issues caused by COVID-19 and remote work are down to a breakdown of communication between offices as well as lengthened turnarounds and even cancellations from outsourced content partners.

Yoshida-san says that we can now expect to hear more about the game in “Spring 2022”, which should equate to roughly Q2 2022.
