One of many extra attention-grabbing sides of interviewing numerous members of Artistic Enterprise Unit III, the studio behind the event of Last Fantasy XVI, throughout this cowl story journey, was listening to in regards to the variations between <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/overview/final-fantasy-xiv-endwalker/final-fantasy-xiv-endwalker-review-a-grand-finale#:~:textual content=Endwalkerpercent20pullspercent20offpercent20apercent20spectacular,inpercent20futurepercent20patchespercent20andpercent20expansions." goal="_blank" rel="noopener">growing an MMO in Last Fantasy XIV</a> and a brand new single-player Last Fantasy. With the previous, CBUIII will get to create settings and characters <a href="https://www.gameinformer.com/2022/05/12/becoming-yoshi-p" goal="_blank" rel="noopener">they'll simply return to in future patch quests, expansions, and extra</a>. However theoretically, that’s not the case with the latter – Clive Rosfield’s story wraps up in Last Fantasy XVI.
And proper now, that certainly might be the top of Clive and the remainder of Valisthea’s story as a result of presently, CBUIII has no plans for FFXVI DLC, in response to director Hiroshi Takai. He and producer Naoki Yoshida say the group’s precedence is getting the sport into gamers’ fingers to see what they suppose.

“It’s a one-off recreation,” Yoshida tells me. “We’re asking gamers to pay the complete worth for this expertise, and so we wish an expertise that’s going to equal the sum of money that gamers are going to be paying and we wish them to have satisfaction equal to what they paid or much more than that.
He, Takai, and the remainder of CBUIII I communicate to reiterate they created Valisthea to be huge, and it’s a world the group want to return to. I get the sense if the demand is there, CBUIII is prepared on a second’s discover to return, maybe via DLC or, harkening again to its MMO experience, an growth. At this level, contemplating current entries like Last Fantasy XV and Last Fantasy VII Remake did obtain DLC, it’d be uncommon to see FFXVI not obtain any.

“We don’t know if persons are going to fall in love with Valisthea and fall in love with Clive’s story and wish to see extra of the world and extra of its characters,” Yoshida says. “So whereas we all the time wish to take into account DLC or spinoffs or these forms of issues the place you possibly can be taught extra in regards to the recreation, first we wish to see if Valisthea and Clive are actually issues gamers around the globe wish to see extra of after which make that call.”
On an identical word, Takai says there aren’t any plans for non-game tie-ins a la FFXV’s Kingsglaive to complement the world of FFXVI in the interim.
