Forspoken: Release Date News, Leaks And Everything We Know So Far

Project Athia, announced back in 2020, now has an official title – Forspoken.

Centred around Frey Holland, a protagonist with newly acquired powers, much of the game remains under wraps.

However, we do know a bit about how it looks, who's behind it, and which platforms we can expect Forspoken to release on.


We hope Forspoken will feature during Square Enix's E3 2021 presentation, though as yet, the developer hasn't specifically marked it for the showcase.

June 9 - Some rumours overnight suggest that Square Enix might not feature any big Final Fantasy series news at their E3 2021 press conference.

This is according to ResetERA forums member Sasliquid (Via wccftech.com). Supposedly, the information was also subsequently verified by the ResetERA forums administrations team.

Whilst this isn't great for anyone hoping to see Final Fantasy 16 or Final Fantasy Origin, it could mean more time in the presentation for the likes of titles like Marvel Avengers, Outriders and Forspoken.

June 7 - Square Enix didn't say Forspoken will feature during its E3 2021 showcase - but it didn't say it won't feature either.

What Is Forspoken?

Forspoken is a fantasy RPG where a woman is transported from our world to one of magic and danger.


Square Enix's Luminous Productions studio, known for its work on Final Fantasy 15, is in charge of Forspoken.

The PlayStation blog describes the game like this: 

Forspoken is an action RPG where you will take on the role of Frey Holland, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical and dangerous land called Athia. As Frey, you will embark on a thrilling, other-worldly adventure and face treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind the unknown land of Athia and awaken something much more from within.

Gary Whitta, screenwriter for Rogue One, is leading the Forspoken writing team and announced his position on Twitter.

Forspoken Release Date

Forspoken slated to launch in 2022.
