Gamers around the world can’t wait to see Final Fantasy 16, the new numbered chapter in the Square Enix saga, in action. Now, however, we discover that the Japanese company may have more on the way: a well-known insider says that we can expect, at E3 2021 , an announcement dedicated to a new game in the Final Fantasy saga exclusively for PS5 .
The source of this information is Navtra, an insider who correctly disclosed that Sony would announce Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart, Sackboy A Great Adventure, Gran Turismo 7, Horizon Forbidden West , Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls and Project Athia ( later confirmed with the name of Forspoken ). To these, we add the fact that Navtra had anticipated the announcement of Final Fantasy 16 and the exclusive DLC of the PlayStation linked for Marvel’s Avengers. In other words, it is a source that we can find very credible.
Navtra now states, via ResetEra: “I think we can expect at least one more big announcement dedicated to Final Fantasy, in addition to updates on games currently announced (16/14 Endwalker / 7 Remake). It should be a good E3 2021 for Square Enix overall. ”
Then, the insider also states that he does not know “the exact E3 schedule of Square Enix , but I am basing my prediction on what I know about the games they have in development, the stage of development they are in and the period of out they planned. So take my statements with a pinch of salt. ” However, he reiterates that this new Final Fantasy would be PS5 exclusive.
Also: Just to set expectations: It’s something new. Not as high-end as FFXVI or Forespoken but certainly more significant than World of FF or a remaster. Conceptually, I think it might be up many people’ alley.
It is not clear whether it is a total exclusive or just a temporal exclusive as in the case of Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Final Fantasy 16. As always, while it is true that it is an insider with a positive history, we remember that we are talking only leaks, not official information. Furthermore, the announcement of a game could be postponed for multiple reasons and, even assuming that what the insider said is true, it is possible that no game will be presented at E3 2021.
