Team Ninja is working on a soulslike action game in the Final Fantasy universe exclusively for PS5 - rumor
At the end of the working week, insiders Navara and NateDrake announced the development of a new exclusive Final Fantasy for the PlayStation 5, which can be announced at E3 2021. According to them, the secret project will offer role-playing elements, but will bring the series to some new territory.
Now the French blogger Souls Hunt claims, with reference to his reliable source, that we are talking about soulslike action, which is being developed for Square Enix by the studio Team Ninja, known for the Nioh dilogy. He compared the upcoming game to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which to some extent was also inspired by the Souls series from FromSoftware, and believes that it will be presented at this E3.
At the same time, if the information is correct, after the announcement, the authors will release a playable demo this summer to collect feedback, as was the case with both parts of Nioh. The informant also added that now the game is called Final Fantasy Origins and is really being created as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, but there is a chance that this will only be a temporary exclusive, and at some point later the project will appear on other platforms, at least on PC.
Previously, Souls Hunt was not seen in the publication of reliable insiders, so the information should still be considered as a rumor.
