Final Fantasy 16 Producer Confirms It Won’t Be Open World

When Final Fantasy 16 was first revealed, many fans immediately assumed that it would follow in the footsteps of its predecessor and be a large-scale open world RPG. According to producer Naoki Yoshida, though, that won’t be the case.

Instead, Yoshida says, Final Fantasy 16 will focus on area-based design in a manner that sounds similar to Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which was likewise assumed to be a pure open world world game when it was first announced last year. But while Final Fantasy won’t be a traditional open world game in itself, Yoshida does say that it will take a lot of inspiration from triple-A open world RPGs, though he doesn’t name any specifics.
