Beware of spoilers! Early copies of Final Fantasy XVI have been sold to the public, Square Enix has confirmed. There have been posts on social media of people possessing an early copy of the game, although it wasn’t confirmed whether those photos came from within a warehouse. Nonetheless, it appears physical copies of the game are being circulated so you might want to avoid social media if you care about spoilers.

Square Enix is going to be trying its best to remove images, videos, or streams published ahead of the game’s launch, but we all know how difficult that is to control.

We’re aware that a small number of physical copies of Final Fantasy XVI are being circulated. We are in the process of a thorough investigation into illegitimate acquisitions and are acting to limit this ahead of the official launch of the game on June 22nd.

For those who receive a copy ahead of launch, we kindly ask that you do not share any aspect of the game; including screenshots, videos, and livestreams, until after Final Fantasy XVI has officially launched.

Our priority is to ensure that the full game experience is not spoiled for our fans, and to do that we will be taking down any images, videos or streams published ahead of launch day.

We ask for your assistance and cooperation in this final week ahead of launch.

It’s almost June 22nd, and we can’t wait for you to experience the full game the way the development team intended.
