2022 continues the trend of delays and sudden changes in windows and release dates from recent years and currently it cannot be taken for granted that a game will debut unless there are days left to meet the official date. The plans are changing from one moment to another and it seems that a console exclusive could suffer another delay but not because of an internal situation in its development, but because of market strategy.
Forspoken could be delayed until 2023
According to information from the XboxEra podcast (via The Gamer), whose insiders have gained notoriety in recent years by providing information that ultimately turned out to be true, Forspokena Luminous Productions and Square Enix project that will arrive on PS5 and PC could be delayed until 2023. According to information, this decision is not due to a request to polish the game and correct bugs, but to what is emerging as the imminent debut of Final Fantasy XVIanother game that will come as a console exclusive to PS5.

The debut of Final Fantasy XVI could change plans Forspoken
One of Shpeshal Nick’s sources, host of the podcast, revealed to him that Forspoken could be delayed until 2023 in case Square Enix considers that Final Fantasy XVI ready. It should be remembered that it was recently revealed that the new installment of the RPG is almost finished and could be one of the great surprises of this year. Also, it should be noted that Forspoken It has already suffered a delay and officially its release date is October 11 on PS5 and PC.
Taking the above into account, it seems that Square Enix does not want to get into market trouble and will choose to make only one big release this year. We are a few days away from June and from that month on the second half is considered more interesting in commercial terms, so it is considered difficult for Forspoken y Final Fantasy XVI are in the same period in stores with a high chance that the second will outshine the first.
Like all information of this type, it must be taken with a grain of salt because there is nothing official yet, however, it is known that Square Enix has lost its way a bit and its decisions about video games have been very controversial in recent years, so do not the former is ruled out.
