The Final Fantasy 16 release has been the subject of much rumor and speculation, with some believing that it might release as soon as Summer 2022. We can now put those suspicions to rest, as Sony revealed at State of Play 2022 that the game will release in Summer 2023.

Final Fantasy 16 Gameplay Details
The above trailer showed off a few interesting details that caught the eyes of viewers. For the first time, it seems like you’ll be playing through the game solo, a break from tradition considering pretty much every game in the series has had you accompanied by a varied party of other playable characters. On the plus side, it does seem like you’ll have some summons on your side if the symbols under your health bar are anything to go by.
