Final Fantasy 16 to Release with Optional Day One Patch

June 20, 2023 by Alex Novichenko

Final Fantasy 16 will have a day one patch, despite previous statements suggesting otherwise. Producer Naoki Yoshida confirmed a 300MB update during a pre-launch stream, apologizing for the inclusion. However, the patch is optional, and the game remains fully playable offline. The update addresses text errors, performance optimization, and backend bugs.

Final Fantasy 16 is set to release soon, on June 22, 2023, exclusively for PlayStation 5.
