Next, Yoshida talked about his goals in Final Fantasy 16 and how it would take 15 years of development to reconcile them with an open world:

“If we consider these four main points, I think it is practically impossible to order everything. With a development period of 15 years, we have had the opportunity to take on the challenge of an open world. After all, it is almost impossible in terms of time and cost. A global story set in an open world.”
