Final Fantasy fans got a long awaited update on the next installment of the series today, as Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida posted a message about the game to Twitter.
Unfortunately, it’s not great news. Yoshida notes that the pandemic has pushed back development of the game by about half of a year. Before, the FFXVI team promised an update on the project by the end of 2021. Yoshida notes that we should now expect FFXVI’s next big reveal to happen sometime around spring.

Final Fantasy XVI will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Yoshida is also the producer (and director) for Final Fantasy XIV, which launched its Endwalker expansion earlier this month.
