Lately we’ve been getting more and more information about the upcoming Final Fantasy 16. Not only did we learn why the title doesn’t have turn-based combat, but also why the decision was made against an open world. Furthermore, we already know that the title has been fully playable since June of this year, and a recently released trailer shed more light on the game’s plot to set the mood.
Final Fantasy 16 release date will be announced later this year
Unfortunately, despite this flood of information, we still don’t have a firm release date for the long-awaited game. However, that could change pretty soon, as producer Naoki Yoshida explained in an interview with Famitsu. According to Yoshida, the Final Fantasy 16 release date will be revealed later this year.
Yoshida also talks a bit about the current development status of the game. Final Fantasy 16 is probably already 95 percent complete, at this point the developers play the title daily to fix any bugs, make adjustments, and overall give the game the finishing touches. In addition, nobody is currently allowed to add new code, as this could cause unforeseen bugs.

Final Fantasy 16’s Naoki Yoshida is already certain that not all fans will be happy with the new role-playing game.
The game is said to be almost finished, but we shouldn’t be prepared for a release that is too soon. Since Final Fantasy 16 is quite large, it will take some time to fix any bugs so that hopefully the game will be fairly bug-free by launch. In fact, most developers are said to be busy with bug fixes at the moment.
