Final Fantasy 16 is on track to be one of the biggest releases of 2023. The upcoming game puts a twist on previous FF installments with its action-oriented combat system instead of a turn-based strategy. The title also marks the first Final Fantasy game to receive a mature rating.

While prospective Final Fantasy 16 players haven’t yet played the base game, producer Naoki Yoshida has commented on the possibility of DLC.

“We have no idea if people are going to fall in love with Valisthea and fall in love with Clive’s story and want to see more of the world and more of its characters,” Yoshida remarked.

“So while we always want to consider DLC or spinoffs or those types of things where you can learn more about the game, first we want to see if Valisthea and Clive are really things players around the world want to see more of and then make that decision.”
