The game had been announced back in March 2015, but things had been conspicuously quiet in recent years.


Despite launching in 2002, the original version of Final Fantasy XI is still receiving content.

It's not all doom and gloom for Final Fantasy fans on mobile, though.

The success of the Final Fantasy 7: Remake means that we'll be getting another reimagining of that story on mobile devices in 2022, Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis.

There's also a mobile-based battle royale, set before the events of that game, called Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier.
