Final Fantasy 16 May Release Soon On PS5

Published

By

The release of Final Fantasy 16 could be closer than expected, with Jason Schreier confirming that it has been in development for four years.

The release of Final Fantasy 16 could be on the horizon far quicker than expected, with Jason Schreier revealing that Square Enix has been working on the project for at least four years. Very little is currently known about the highly-anticipated title, although the publisher has announced that it will be a PlayStation console exclusive but could also come to PC. However, the title does appear to feature more action-orientated combat and a high fantasy setting rather than taking place in a modern world.

The fact that Final Fantasy 16 might be releasing sooner than was previously expected makes some sense. The recent reveal trailer for the game, which was featured prominently during the PlayStation 5 Showcase earlier in September, contained plenty of cinematics and gameplay footage. This kind of promotional material is usually only revealed as a game nears completion as the assets are not suitable for public consumption before that time.

Final Fantasy 16 might be coming sooner than many fans initially expected. Journalist and respected industry insider Jason Schreier made the revelation that Square Enix has been working on the game for more than four years in the latest episode of the Triple Click podcast. According to Schreier, the game will release “sooner than what people think” as much of the development has already been completed. Speaking about the work that Square Enix has already done, he said:

“I’ve heard from people who are familiar with the game’s development that it’s actually been in development for at least four years in some capacity, so it’s coming sooner than people think.”

The last entry in the mainline series went through a very difficult development cycle. Square Enix spent more than 10 years working on Final Fantasy 15, with the publisher choosing to switch the creative direction of the title multiple times. Part of the delay was blamed on Square Enix revealing the game too early while it was still in early production. However, the team also ditched a release on PS3 and instead focused its efforts on a release for PS4 and Xbox One. The game ended up dividing critics and fans, although had steadily improved with a series of content updates.

If Final Fantasy 16 does release sooner than expected, it will be a great relief to many fans. Especially when Final Fantasy 15 had such a troubled development and took 10 years to complete. The fact that work on the game might be nearing completion also makes lots of sense considering how in-depth the announcement trailer for the title was. It would also suggest that Square Enix has learned lessons and will only reveal its projects later in development.

NYFF Reacts to the ‘Injustice of the Breonna Taylor Ruling’ by Offering Free Steve McQueen Film

Published

on

By

McQueen’s “Mangrove,” plus other films in the “Small Axe” trilogy, are dedicated to the memory of George Floyd.

It’s not every year a major film festival offers the world premiere of a major auteur’s new project for free, which makes the New York Film Festival’s decision to offer free tickets to Steve McQueen’s “Mangrove” a notable one. The festival has announced all remaining tickets to the September 25 world premiere screening of “Mangrove” will be free “in recognition of current events, the injustice of the Breonna Taylor ruling, and the courageous efforts of protestors around the globe.”

“Mangrove” stars “Black Panther” favorite Letitia Wright opposite Shaun Parkes, Malachi Kirby, Jack Lowden, and more. McQueen, who co-wrote the film with Alastair Siddons, recreates the true story of the Mangrove Nine, a group of Black British activists who were arrested for inciting a riot during a 1970 protest against the police. The film covers the protest and the 55-day trial. “Mangrove” is one of five movies that make up McQueen’s “Small Axe” anthology series, which the director revealed earlier this year is dedicated to the memory of George Floyd. The films begin rolling out November 20 on Amazon Prime.

“I dedicate these films to George Floyd and all the other black people that have been murdered, seen or unseen, because of who they are, in the US, UK and elsewhere,” McQueen said in June, shortly after “Mangrove” and fellow anthology entry “Lovers Rock” were confirmed as selections of the 2020 Cannes Film Festival. “If you are the big tree, we are the small axe. Black Lives Matter.”

In addition to offering “Mangrove” for free, the NYFF programming team also announced this week it has removed Oliver Shahery’s documentary short “Wild Bill Horsecock” from its virtual screening platform. The movie centers on Nashville country singer Hayes Johnson, and his “unambiguous history of sexual misconduct is referenced extensively.” NYFF said it recognized “the real harm that our presentation of the film would cause” after “individual survivors and their advocates came forward.”

“In light of this harm, we feel the need to respond by removing it from the program,” a NYFF statement reads. “We came to this decision after much consideration and deliberation, in an effort to reconcile our commitment to freedom of expression with our commitment to supporting and amplifying the voices of survivors of sexual assault.”

‘Filthy Rich’ Sneak Peek: Why Did Eugene Survive the Plane Crash? (VIDEO)

Published

By

Yes, Eugene (Gerald McRaney) is really alive on Filthy Rich, but what’s next for him?

That’s the question for Monday’s episode of the new Fox soapy drama, and TV Insider has an exclusive sneak peek as the Monreaux patriarch ponders his continued existence.

As his daughter-in-law, Becky (Olivia Macklin) prays to God — “Where do we go when we die? Do we become spirit in the sky? Or do we float around unnoticed to those who love us?” — we check in with Eugene in Ellie’s (Annie Golden) home in a swamp, as he wonders why he was spared when no other plane passengers were.

Watch the clip above to hear Ellie’s thoughts on the matter. And considering his family back home is dealing with his illegitimate children, he probably should listen to her.

After Margaret (Kim Cattrall) took control of the situation in the pilot by announcing the existence of her husband’s illegitimate children to the world, the next episode, “John 3:3,” sees her finding “a way to capitalize on this surprise revelation for the benefit of herself and Sunny Club,” the logline teases.

She’ll also have her son Eric (Corey Cott) taking care of the company’s charitable arm. Elsewhere, “Rose (Aubrey Dollar) finds out the shocking truth about Jason (Mark L. Young).” Will that be an explanation for why he seemingly used someone else’s saliva for the DNA test in the premiere or something else?
