Final Fantasy 16: PlayStation Store updates the game page just before the State of Play

Final Fantasy 16

The Final Fantasy 16 page on the PlayStation Store has been updated just before the State of Play, as discovered by some fans always looking for tracks for the launch of the game. What changes will have been made? Hard to say, but the proximity to tonight's event, which will be dedicated to third-party announcements, seemed suspicious to most.

The hope is therefore that new gameplay of the game will be shown and that perhaps the release date will be revealed. Of course, at this stage it is impossible to say for sure what will happen. As has often happened in the past, certain deductions may turn out to be completely far-fetched and Final Fantasy XVI may not be fully present at the State of Play.

The only certainty is that the game has been announced for nearly two years now. ago, which was in September 2020, and very little of the game has emerged since then. The development team keeps repeating that the work is well underway, but it hasn't shown anything anymore. In these conditions it is difficult to say whether the release has been set for 2022 (difficult) or 2023 (more likely) and what the contents of the game will be, which seems to have a much more classic setting than the fifteenth and thirteenth. chapter.

For the rest we remind you that Final Fantasy XVI has been announced for PC and as an exclusive PS5 console.

Final Fantasy 16's PS Store Page Gets Updated Ahead of State of Play Show

Final Fantasy XVI PS Store

Here's the biggest story being shared around the web ahead of Sony's State of Play tonight: the PlayStation Store page for Final Fantasy XVI has just been updated. Gasp!

The suggestion, of course, being that we're getting a much needed update on the RPG during the broadcast. It's already got some people convinced that it's happening, but as per usual, we're here to potentially p*ss on the parade.

The bottom line is this: a PS Store page update doesn't mean anything, and it never has. We've seen this exact same scenario happen before, when multiple pages were refreshed ahead of a State of Play broadcast last year (Final Fantasy XVI included, funnily enough!). Nothing came of it.

The store page updating might not be indicative of anything, but that doesn't mean Final Fantasy XVI is forbidden from today's State of Play. Square Enix has said that the game is ready to be shown — a full trailer is apparently primed. The timing would certainly add up if it does appear tonight, especially since Sony has promised third party content.

But again, don't take this PS Store adjustment as confirmation — it just doesn't work like that. As always, we'd recommend tempering your expectations (and then if it does actually happen, you can act surprised).
