Basically, the only Final Fantasy XVI players encountering this New Game Plus issue are ones who decided to skip the prologue. People who did this might not get to go any further, as “A Chance Encounter” won’t include anyone else with Clive. The solution essentially involves starting a New Game Plus save file and not skipping the prologue. 

Here’s the full statement on the Final Fantasy XVI problem and workaround to help people with the issue overcome the bug. There’s no word yet on when a patch to fix it will appear. 

The next step in Final Fantasy XVI‘s development is the PC port. Producer Naoki Yoshida said that it is on the horizon. There’s no release window for it yet. However, when it does launch there will also be a demo to go along with it.

Final Fantasy XVI is available for the PS5, with the Echoes of the Fallen and Rising TideDLC out now. A PC version of the game is also on the way.
