Final Fantasy 16 Trends as Fans Share State of Play Disappointment
Today's PlayStation State of Play proved to be an underwhelming event for many viewers, but none were as disappointed as Final Fantasy fans. Many had hoped that Final Fantasy XVI might appear during the presentation, but that didn't prove to be the case. The latest entry in Square Enix's beloved franchise is going to be a timed exclusive on PlayStation 5, but we haven't learned anything new about the game since it was revealed last year. There are a number of reasons that the game probably wasn't showcased; the fact is, Square Enix might not be ready, just yet. Unfortunately, that just doesn't make anyone feel better about it, at the moment.

Fans of the series expected more.
So what exactly was the point of this State of Play? Not a glimpse of exciting stuff like Horizon, Final Fantasy or God of war. That was a truly disappointing show. #Stateofplay #ps5 #PlayStation— Mollewitz (@mollewitz) July 8, 2021
That's not the only game fans want to see.
@PlayStation I know it wasn't meant for today.. but we want to see more
- FINAL FANTASY XVI
- GTA5 enhanced
- new AAA games for 2022 2023!
- (God of War hype of course)...
Hope to see things soon.— Viktor Kateliev (@viktor_xiii) July 8, 2021
Others knew better ahead of time, though.
