Final Fantasy XVI May Surprise With Bold Scenes; Rumored Release Date

New information about Final Fantasy XVI indicates that the latest installment will be even bolder than it might have seemed before. By the way, there are also rumors about the release date.

Final Fantasy XVI has received an age rating in Brazil. The game's content has been rated as unsuitable for players under 16 years of age. As noted by Reddit users, this could have been determined by such elements as extensive violence (including torture), the presence of blood, sex scenes (or references to it), prostitution, drugs or hate crimes. This, of course, does not give a full picture of the game's content, but it could already be seen from the trailers that the game will be darker and dirtier than the other main installments.

The Final Fantasy brand couldn't complain about the lack of difficult content.. The successive installments of the series featured racism, suicide, hatred and violence in general, although there was no blood in that - the exception being a few isolated scenes or the spin-off Final Fantasy Type 0. It is also worth remembering Final Fantasy Tactics, a game for the first PlayStation (or a re-release on the PSP), which also managed to surprise in this regard.

Final Fantasy XVI release date - rumors

By the way, there are rumors, which say that the release date ofFinal Fantasy XVI may be revealed at this year's The Game Awards. The event will begin on December 9 at 1:30 am CET / 4:30 pm PT. Pre-orders for the game are also expected to launch during the event.

The release of the game itself, on the other hand, would be expected in the middle of next year. This is the conclusion reached by the editors of Insider Gaming, analyzing a post by user The Snitch, an informant providing various rumors. The date behind the poem is said to be June 22, 2023.

The game's age rating also suggests that a new trailer is coming soon. As a reminder Final Fantasy XVI is 95% complete and will initially appear only on PlayStation 5.
