Final Fantasy 16 XVI Final Fantasy XVI

Final Fantasy 16 Copies Are In The Wild

With just one week to go, fans are eager to get their hands on the latest Final Fantasy title. Some lucky fans already received their Final Fantasy 16 copies and are playing the game before launch.

As a result, Square Enix has asked fans to stay vigilant and for those who already have a copy to avoid spoiling story beats on social media. Also, the developer is investigating how “illegitimate acquisitions” were sold.

The whole note, shown on social media, is posted below:

We’re aware that a small number of physical copies of Final Fantasy XVI are being circulated. We are in the process of a thorough investigation into illegitimate acquisitions and are acting to limit this ahead of the official launch of the game on June 22nd.

For those who receive a copy ahead of launch, we kindly ask that you do not share any aspect of the game, including screenshots, videos, and livestreams, until after Final Fantasy XVI has officially launched.

Our priority is to ensure that the full game experience is not spoiled for our fans, and to do that we will be taking down any images, videos, or streams published ahead of launch day.

We ask for your assistance and cooperation in this final week ahead of launch.

It’s almost June 22nd, and we can’t wait for you to experience the full game the way the development team intended.

Final Fantasy 16 launches for the PlayStation 5 on June 22, 2023. A demo is out now for you to experience the battle system with progress carrying over to the full game.
