Producer Naoki Yoshida
“How did you enjoy the trailer? The exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real-time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new FINAL FANTASY game – Our next big information reveal is scheduled for 2021, so in the meantime, I expect everyone to have fun speculating, as we have a lot in store—not only for FINAL FANTASY XVI, but for FINAL FANTASY XIV, too. I’ll be working hard on both!”
Director Hiroshi Takai

“The team and I have taken on countless challenges during our journey to bring you the sixteenth chapter in the storied FINAL FANTASY franchise.We’re pouring our hearts and souls into this project each and every day, it may still be some time before we can get it into your hands – I promise it will be worth the wait!”
