In a general sense, the six-month PS5 exclusivity probably won’t affect the new game with the conflicting name. It’s still slated for a vague “summer of 2023” release date, and we already knew it was bound for Sony’s still-elusive console. And again, being a PlayStation exclusive has become something of a common approach for recent “Final Fantasy” releases. Even the six-month window isn’t new.
What this does mean is that, if you were hoping to be able to play “Final Fantasy 16” on anything other than a PS5 shortly after its initial launch, you’re going to have to wait. Exactly how long of a wait it’ll be is unclear, but at the absolute earliest you’re probably looking at winter 2023, if not sometime in 2024. This also means that, if you were hoping to lord being able to play “Final Fantasy 16” over your PS5-less friends, you won’t get to boast for too terribly long.
