The host of The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley, announced that we would see a special live presentation by Naoki Yoshida, the producer of Final Fantasy 16. Of course, we have yet to determine precisely what he will highlight, but fans are eager to watch the event.
Fans of the franchise can expect to see Square Enix veteran Naoki Yoshida at the show, the producer of Final Fantasy 16, which recently had its PlayStation exclusivity expiration date revealed. The event will be broadcast live from Los Angeles.
Every year, The Game Awards not only honors the best and brightest of all the games released that year but also comes with major news and announcements. This year will be no different, and now it’s been confirmed that we can expect to see the upcoming game via Geoff Keighley’s Twitter. While the reveal was kept under wraps, various rumors made it fairly common knowledge that something related to the game would appear at the awards show. This confirmation prepares the audience to expect big things.
Fans are hoping for a concrete release date and some gameplay footage. You may be aware that the game isn’t slated to launch until 2023, so we still don’t have a specific release date, but that may change again next week when the stream for The Game Awards 2022 officially starts. The announcement will be live-streamed for free across various video-sharing websites.
Naoki Yoshida is expected to show off a new trailer during The Game Awards, after which pre-orders for the game will go live, although there have been rumors that pre-orders may be available before the show starts. It all adds to how Square Enix is preparing to release a new entry in one of its signature series. Earlier today, it was announced that Final Fantasy 16 had been rated in Brazil, proving that the game is gearing up for a release date reveal.
