E3 2021 might play host to some fairly huge reveals. With the occasion now lower than a month away, the rumor mill is heating up and insiders are dropping details about what we’d see. ResetEra person Navtra, a recognized insider with a strong observe document with previous reveals, mentioned that there are two main reveals coming from Square Enix in June, and one in all them is a PS5-exclusive Final Fantasy. They name it a “reveal,” which appears to rule out a brand new trailer for both Final Fantasy XVI or Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade (the latter of which could have already launched by the point we hit E3).
Last 12 months, Navtra was the supply who leaked Final Fantasy XVI as a timed PS5 unique with an imminent reveal shortly earlier than the game was officially shown and revealed to be simply that, a timed PS5 unique. They have been additionally the insider behind a lot of bulletins from Sony’s first PS5 software program showcase final June they usually revealed Marvel’s Avengers’ PlayStation-exclusive Spider-Man DLC earlier than it was formally introduced. So when Navtra began talking up about this 12 months’s E3 reveals, it perked up some ears.
Initially, Navtra posted on ResetEra “I believe you can expect at least one more major FF announcement in addition to updates on the currently announced stuff (XVI/Endwalker/VIIR). It should be a good E3 season for Square overall.” This assertion instantly guidelines out a recognized amount and says that it’s one thing new.
“I don’t know their exact E3 schedule, but I’m guessing based on knowledge of what games they have in development, how far in they are, and their target release dates. So take it with a grain of salt,” Navtra mentioned in a later submit. “I believe we’re getting two major SE reveals this June: A PS5 exclusive FF title, and a cross-gen Eidos title.” This is the place they affirm that the main Final Fantasy title in improvement is a PS5 unique.
Finally, after some prodding for extra details about the scale and scope of the Final Fantasy recreation being introduced, they mentioned “Just to set expectations: It’s something new. Not as high-end as FFXVI or Forespoken but certainly more significant than World of FF or a remaster. Conceptually, I think it might be up many people'[sic] alley.”
This final remark creates lots of attention-grabbing hypothesis for what the title might be. The most evident fast response is a reveal for Final Fantasy VII Remake’s subsequent half (whether or not or not it’s going to be known as Part II is up for debate). However, Navtra has mentioned repeatedly that the title is “new” and “in addition to updates on currently announced stuff.” What’s not clear is that if the subsequent chapter of the VII Remake saga falls into that class or not. Either approach, it seems that Sony goes all-in on PlayStation exclusives with Square Enix.
Keep in thoughts that, nevertheless dependable Navtra has been in the previous, that is nonetheless an unconfirmed rumor in the meanwhile. Both E3 and Summer Game Fest are proper across the nook nevertheless, every set to kick off mid-next month, so we should always discover out extra shortly.
