Final Fantasy 16 was first shown when Sony showed off the PlayStation 5 in 2020. We saw a video that seemed to confirm that there would be an extra platform, but Square Enix has since taken some of that back. What we do know is that Final Fantasy 16 looks like it will keep FF15’s action-based gameplay while adding new characters and a new setting.
Sony chose to put Final Fantasy 16 in the spotlight by releasing it around the same time as its new PS5 system. This isn’t unusual, since Sony has had a close relationship with the Final Fantasy name in the past, and it looks like this will mean that the game will only be available on Sony’s platforms. If history is any guide, FF16 will be launched on more platforms in the future, but we don’t know much about that right now.
We made this guide to help you stay up-to-date on everything Final Fantasy 16-related. It will talk about the game’s release date, videos, and gameplay. We’ll look at the characters that have been shown so far and gather all of the official information that Square Enix has given us. As the game’s release date gets near, we’ll probably hear more about it. When we do, we’ll put the news on this page so you know what’s going on.

Platforms: Is It Only Available for PS5?
At the end of the reveal video that came out in 2020, it was said that Final Fantasy 16 would only be available on the PS5. In the fine print, it said, “Not available on other platforms for a limited time after PS5 release” to explain this exclusivity window more.
This isn’t that unusual, since some games only come out on one console for a certain amount of time before coming out on others. Sony recently gave more information about this by saying that Final Fantasy 16 will only be available on PS5 for the next 6 months.
