Final Fantasy Creator Has Completed The Plot For His New Game

Hironobu Sakaguchi Aims to start production on this title in 2024.

Story Highlights

  • Hironobu Sakaguchi has disclosed that the plot for his upcoming game is complete.
  • The developer is going to start production on the game in 2024 and is trying to figure out what makes it fun.
  • The Final Fantasy creator previously stated he was planning a “dark fantasy” game.

In a new interview with Famitsu, Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi stated that he has completely written the plot for his upcoming game. The developer revealed this info in the publication’s year-end creator interviews, confirming that he is now working on the overall scenario of the title and trying to figure out what makes it fun. Hence, Sakaguchi’s mysterious new game is going to begin production in 2024.

I’m starting work on a new title. I’m currently writing the scenario, having gone through the scenario plot. At this stage, it’s important to condense and infuse what makes it fun. I will do my best.”

The Lost Odyssey developer first mentioned this project in Famitsu’s 2022 year-end creator interviews, saying that he was planning to work on a dark fantasy game, with no other specifics revealed. Sakaguchi’s next update about this project only came about two months ago when he posted on X about going to the Ise Jingu Shrine in Japan to give thanks for the “new project.

Hence, it feels like Hironobu Sakaguchi has finally got some liftoff in the past few months and we could get some info very soon. This secret IP is the producer’s first project since Fantasian, the Apple Arcade RPG he thought would be his last ever game.
