What you need to know

  • Final Fantasy 16 has been announced at the PS5 games showcase today.
  • It's a timed exclusive on PS5 and it's also coming to PC.
  • No release date or release window was given.

While the Final Fantasy 7 Remake captured hearts and minds with impressive sales earlier this year, a new fantasy is on the horizon. During today's PS5 games showcase, Square Enix revealed the next mainline entry in this long-running series: Final Fantasy 16.

You can check out the reveal trailer for Final Fantasy 16 below. It shows off battles and cutscenes that are "running in real-time" (on a PC that's working like a PS5 would, according to the video).

The game is a collaboration between Naoki Yoshida and Hiroshi Takai, who both worked on Final Fantasy 14 expansions.

Final Fantasy 16 is coming to PS5 at an unknown point in the future, but Yoshida said in a press release that the next big information reveal is set for 2021. There was some confusion during the showcase because a card at the end of the trailer said the game was coming also coming to PC, but that proved to be false. Current versions of the trailer have been corrected.

In the meantime you can check out a few screenshots below.

Update Sept. 16, 2020: A previous version of this article said the game was coming to PC, but it turns out that was in error.
