The Game Awards 2022: Final Fantasy XVI has a release date, new trailer

During last night’s Game Awards, Square Enix was ready to show off a little more of Final Fantasy XVI with a new “Revenge” trailer, showing off what I can only assume is going to be the protagonists main motivation throughout the game.

Perhaps more importantly, we also have a release date, which is June 22nd, 2023. Pre-orders are now available for standard and deluxe editions of the game, but pre-orders for the Collectors Edition won’t go live until 12/12/22 on Square Enix’s website, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, check out the new trailer below.



The flames of vengeance burn bright and beckon with ambitious hunger. Awaken the Eikons, but will you dominate them or will they dominate you?

FINAL FANTASY XVI launches June 22, 2023 on PlayStation 5.
