Over the holiday weekend, Square Enix confirmed that thanks to the always and forever COVID-19 pandemic, development on Final Fantasy 16 has been delayed by "almost a half year." The next big reveal for the upcoming RPG won't happen until Spring 2022.

The game's producer Naoki Yoshida revealed this news on Twitter. Not only did Yoshida deliver this unfortunate news, but he also took the time to apologize to fans. There was supposed to be more footage for the game shown off in 2021, but that's just not going to happen now because of the delays.

Yoshida does say that he and the team are planning for a big reveal to take place in Spring 2022.

Final Fantasy 16 was first announced back in September 2020 during Sony's PlayStation 5 event. The game is currently only a PlayStation exclusive but will probably come to the PC eventually. Knowing Square Enix's recent track record, it will probably come to PC over a year after the PlayStation release, but probably as a $70 Epic Games Store timed exclusive.
