It was reported that it had done really well and the game has seen a financial success a much-needed influx of cash was accumulated for Square Enix.
Many are wondering how the story of the game will be like, and thinking how the franchise will do in the upcoming title.
The much anticipated ‘Final Fantasy 16‘ game is in the making and fans are already demanding some insight on this riveting game. Not much has been revealed to the fans and it looks like they are kept in the dark, however, something that we can shed light upon the future game is the combativeness of the game. Since it is anyone’s guess that the story and set up will be much different than the predecessors, we can say that to make it more competitive they will definitely look to make a more action combat game.
Final fantasy series represented one of the series’ first foray into a truly open world environment and seems it really paid off. The fans loved being taken around the world in a trusty convertible with the lovable characters making it even more playable. Having said that, there are some flaws which could be ironed out with the upcoming final fantasy 16. Bringing the new expansive world could benefit the Square Enix, given the open world received a positive feedback along with action combat. It is safe to anticipate that Final Fantasy 16 will be more of a refinement than a complete overhaul of the existing system.
The main characters in the Final Fantasy 15 were enjoyable and relatively fleshed out, however, the depth was lacking in, side characters. The main reason for the massive success of Final Fantasy 15 was the plot and the amazing storytelling. While the game succeeded in the combat, many believe that the story was just decent and not quite as much strong as the previous titles. So, a final fantasy 16 with an exhilarating story, enriching plot and interesting personalities will be welcomed by many avid fans.
There are not many revelations about the date of the release though, but Square Enix had confirmed that they will begin the development of the upcoming game by the end of 2018, and we can expect the earliest release date to be sometime in 2019. While they have taken time for developing each and every game, it will be too early to say 2019, so a rough guess we can say is 2020.
Well, it’s very soon to guess all these things and all could be confirmed only when some kind of announcement will be made by Square Enix. So, all we can do is wait and see how they are going to excel at their work and impress their existing fans and make some new fans through this new game.
