Sadly, big storyline spoilers appearing online in the days leading up to a game’s release isn’t anything new. In late October 2022, only days ahead of its release, Sony warned “God of War” fans that there were major “Ragnarok” spoilers circulating online. Though Sony had said that it was attempting to limit the spread of the spoilers, the hard reality is that once something is unleashed on the internet, there’s no putting it back in the bottle. In that case, it was discovered that a retailer had started selling physical copies of the game a couple of weeks before its official launch date, and it’s entirely possible the same will prove true with the “Final Fantasy 16” leaks.
“Final Fantasy 16” is currently available to preorder through the game’s official website, through the PlayStation Store, and on Amazon. As expected, the title will only be available on the PS5 initially, though this is a timed exclusive, meaning the more patient people among us will eventually be able to grab a copy on other platforms, as well. Per one of the teaser trailers, the game’s launch beyond the PS5 will happen on December 31, 2023.
