Thread: Rumor: Final Fantasy XVI may get an announcement sometime this summer

    I'd like to believe that the reason FFXVI wasn't announced a couple years ago was because SE was trying to avoid premature announcements, but realistically, Fynn's right.

    I mean, to be fair, the guy who is partly responsible for goading fans with new projects and letting them stay in development hell is working on the VII Remake. Just saying that we may need them to start XVI now because it could be another seven years before episode 2 comes out.

    It's not clear that ends up hurting them. At least not economically. FFXV sold incredibly well, and most of those sales occurred in the first month, at a point where the game was an unfinished mess.

    FFVII Remake saved them. If they went straight to FFXV to XVI things would be different, and maybe after the honeymoon phase is over with the remake too.

    It's easy to say this in a bubble like EoFF and similar groups of old-school FF fans, but the mainstream liked FFXV, and the mainstream absolutely loves FFVII Remake.

    Between that and FFXIV being a massive success, FF doesn't need any saving.

    If they announce anything AAA I'm sure we won't be playing it for another 6+ years given their recent track record xD

    I don't think anyone would be expecting a quick turn around if SE announced it. That would likely be the biggest shock from them is if they announced it and had it ready within two years because they had already been working on it. Yet with all of their past releases, it's very unlikely seeing how I'm sure their priority has been finishing the XV DLC, getting KHIII and VIIR out the door, and working on Shadowbringers for XIV has likely absorbed most of their main teams. Not to mention we've also seen a bunch of smaller and medium releases as well. A XVI announcement would likely have a tentative release date of 2024 or 2025.
