Final Fantasy 16 rating prompts release date speculation

Brazil’s ratings board published the first Final Fantasy 16 rating (thanks, VGC), which has prompted a few questions not just about what to expect from the upcoming RPG – which certainly seems to be earning its mature rating – but when it might release. Producer Naoki Yoshida recently teased that the Final Fantasy 16 release date would be sooner than some might expect.

Whether we hear news about the release date soon is anyone’s guess, but it seems guaranteed Final Fantasy 16 news of some variety is coming soon. Geoff Keighley, host of The Game Awards, announced that Yoshida will make a special appearance during The Game Awards 2022, and Yoshida previously promised another trailer and more information at some point before the year ends.

Next Thursday, #TheGameAwards is humbled to welcome Naoki Yoshida, producer of @finalfantasyxvi to the show for a very special live presentation!

Games are usually rated anywhere from a few weeks to several months before they release, though so far, the ESRB hasn’t issued a rating for United States audiences just yet.

The Brazil rating says the game is not for children under 16 and cites sexual content, violence, torture, and hate crimes. Surprising as those rating tags may sound, it’s not entirely out of keeping with some of the long-running series’ darker entries. 

One narrative thread in Final Fantasy 12 was altered in Japan owing to its similarity to real-life kidnappings that had taken place in Japan at the time, and Final Fantasy 14 frequently delves into darker storytelling and doesn’t shy away from violence.
