To address player concerns, the developers of Final Fantasy 16 have pledged to rectify the performance issues experienced during the game’s demo. Producer Naoki Yoshida reassured fans that the team is actively improving the framerate problems and urged players not to be overly concerned.
During a presentation titled “Feedback from the Demo,” Yoshida acknowledged the technical shortcomings encountered by players and confirmed that updates would be released to enhance the game’s overall performance.
He highlighted that the framerate issues were most noticeable in densely populated areas, such as the bustling town castle section.
Prominent Japanese video game insider Genki took to Twitter to report on Yoshida’s comments, stating, “Yoshi-P says they will be releasing updates to improve the frame rate of FF16! He says currently there are areas where the frame rate drops when there is a lot of characters such as towns. They will be working on updates to improve framerate, so please don’t worry about that.”
The development team is focused on addressing framerate concerns and other aspects based on player feedback. One such area of improvement is motion blur , with the team looking into providing options to adjust or disable it entirely. Furthermore, camera movement speed adjustments and auto-follow options are also under consideration.
While media outlets, including ours, had the opportunity to preview a particular demo version, it’s important to note that the final version may differ in content and experience.
Nonetheless, our initial impressions highlighted the potential of Final Fantasy 16 to capture the essence of earlier games while introducing innovative combat mechanics to appeal to a broader audience. However, the game’s true success can only be determined after its official launch.
