Since its trailer was released in 2020, fans of Final Fantasy have been anticipating the series' upcoming mainline game, Final Fantasy 16. Many people probably expected to learn anything brand-new about the game shortly at a significant gaming event like TGS because the game's release window is gradually drawing near. \n \nUnfortunately, it has now been made known that Final Fantasy 16 won't be the main attraction at the Tokyo Game Show. Even though Square Enix will be there, it concentrates on other upcoming games. \n \nFans were shocked to discover Final Fantasy 16 missing from Square Enix's list of games featured at its stand during TGS. However, the series hasn't been forgotten entirely, so that's not the case. Final Fantasy 14 and Square Enix's continuing MMORPG, Crisis Core: \n \nFinal Fantasy 7 Reunion, will continue to be included. In addition, there will be various other games, including several Dragon Quest installments. \n \nThe reason that Final Fantasy 16 lacks TGS is not apparent. The game will probably launch before next year's TGS because it is scheduled to release mid-2023. Some people worry that Square Enix's absence may indicate that the game will be released later than expected, given their illustrious reputation as a JRPG developer. Other details about the game could still be revealed this year, though, as more gaming conventions and events are planned, including The Game Awards, which attracts a sizable worldwide audience. \n \nThe development cycle for Final Fantasy 16 hasn't been near as complex as that of Final Fantasy 15, which saw numerous delays lasting more than ten years and even underwent a rebranding before going on sale. Nevertheless, there may be a sense of déjà vu for fans of the Final Fantasy series as they worry that severe delays may affect the series again. While fans of Final Fantasy 16 will have to wait and see, the series should have a good showing at TGS, given the presence of Final Fantasy 14 and the numerous Final Fantasy 7 spin-offs.
