Final Fantasy 16 has taken the world by storm. The highly-anticipated video game by Square Enix sold over three million copies worldwide during its first week of launch. While that number is a huge achievement, it’s especially impressive considering Final Fantasy 16 is a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Now that it’s been weeks since launching, fans are all asking the same question: Will Final Fantasy 16 get a DLC? Here are the chances.

Previously, producer Naoki Yoshida told Game Informer that there weren’t any plans to develop extra content for the game. However, that could change depending on the fans. Of course, he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a DLC if there was enough of a demand for it. Although Final Fantasy 16 tells a complete story, Yoshida recently told GamerBraves that a DLC could still happen.

While Final Fantasy is an anthology series, there have been a few titles that have gotten spin-offs or DLCs. In a May 23 interview with Game Informer, Yoshida confirmed Final Fantasy 16 is a “one-off game.” He helped develop the project with the intent that players would be fully satisfied with its story. “We want an experience that’s going to equal the amount of money that players are going to be paying,” he said. “We want them to have satisfaction equal to what they paid or even more than that.”

Yoshida explained that any conversations surrounding a potential DLC would be explored following the release of Final Fantasy 16. “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 said. “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.”

Although nothing has been officially announced, Yoshida confirmed there are discussions happening about a potential DLC. “Now we understand we’re getting feedback from players that have played the game and a lot of players want to see more and we know that and understand that,” he told GamerBraves. “For us, we’re taking that and then thinking about our options moving forward. Hopefully, in the near future, we can have something that we can give to you all.”

We’re crossing our fingers for a DLC announcement soon!

Final Fantasy 16 is available now on PS5.
