Remaining Fantasy 16 seems fairly good, ey? Our personal Alex Donaldson had some huge glowing reward for the sport in his preview that went reside yesterday, and (in an earlier preview) I additionally didn’t have a nasty phrase to say about it. By all accounts, that is going to be a stunner. A correct PlayStation 5 tour de pressure. And the builders appear equally as assured within the sport, too.
Clive prepares to satisfy his maker(s).
In addition to the sensible feedback we’ve seen from the devs because the media tour has been happening (giving us such gems as ‘Remaining Fantasy 16 goes to have Geordies in it’), there’s been one thing particular in an enormous Sport Informer cowl piece that’s been picked up and run a couple of bit over the previous few days: Remaining Fantasy 16 is just not going to have a Day One patch.
Now, you is likely to be considering that’s a bit unusual – off the highest of my head, I can’t consider any huge, triple-A sport of this stature that launched up to now few years and not using a Day One patch.

Director Hiroshi Takai famous in an interview with Sport Informer that there are presently no plans to replace the more-action-than-RPG at launch. Takai famous that the sport has been within the works for thus lengthy (and has had so many delays) that it’s in such a assured spot, it doesn’t want a Day One patch. Fancy that.

The workforce could need to handle sure issue choices, or re-balance some ludicrous end-game boss when your least favorite YouTuber discovers some disgusting cheese to kill it in a single hit.
No matter occurs, although, it seems like Sq. Enix is fairly assured that you just’re not going to must obtain some egregious 9GB patch earlier than you can begin enjoying on Day One, as a result of this Remaining Fantasy – a lot in contrast to Remaining Fantasy 15, for instance – sounds prefer it’s going to be completed at launch.
Remaining Fantasy 16 will launch on June 22, 2023 for PlayStation 5. There is no such thing as a phrase on whether or not the sport will come to PC or different consoles sooner or later (however it will not arrive elsewhere inside a minimum of six months).
