Are Final Fantasy XVI pre-sales less than what Sqaure Enix expected?
However, whistleblower and journalist Imran Khan reports that there is “panic” at Square Enix over this, as the project is seeing slightly fewer pre-sales, even when you do the math with Final Fantasy XVI only debuting. on PlayStation 5, compared to Final Fantasy XV, which also came to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Khan recalls that only the number of pre-sales is taken into account, which could be an indicator of how well the game could sell upon its release. But in the end, sales are what counts and the game could do well despite not registering many pre-orders. Maybe players don’t have much confidence in preorders anymore and want to wait and see if the game launches well or not.
