Square Enix revealed during his last financial briefing that Final Fantasy 16 Probably won’t see the light of day on PS5 for some time, as its next batch of releases for the period ending March 31, 2022 will focus on the new IP.
The post revealed that its main IPs, which obviously include Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, will arrive later, which means we’re looking beyond April 2022 for Final Fantasy 16.
Square Enix surprised the results by saying that upcoming titles in the period ending March 2022 will focus on new IP titles (Outriders, Forspoken, etc.), with major IPs coming in subsequent years. So I think it means FF16, DQ12, etc. will be April 2022 or later. Surprised #Square Enix

For now, it looks like new IPs such as Outriders and Forspoken are the main objective of the company. This matches the recent rumor that Forspoken will be released in January 2022, although nothing has been confirmed at this point.
Meanwhile, Dragon Quest will receive a special 35th anniversary feed later this month, where Square Enix will make a number of announcements for the series.[Source – David Gibson on Twitter]
