During its development, Granblue Fantasy: Relink was delayed multiple times. Initially, the RPG was set to launch worldwide in 2018, but this was moved to 2022 after PlatinumGames dropped out of the project. But, Cygames wasn’t able to meet this release date either and once again pushed the game back, this time to 2023, which we all know didn’t happen. 

Cygames did however publish the new 2.5D fighting game in the series, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising in December 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Steam. It was a sequel to the 2020 original and featured new characters, graphics, stages, and storyline in addition to previous content returning.
