    Well when it still has no official name, I tend to think it's still pretty early on development.

    OTOH, they did seem to show gameplay.

    Watched the trailer again in 4k, mind blown to bits. This is very reminiscent of the UE5 demo, definitely a true next gen showcase.

    Looks fantastic but I can't get excited for Square Enix games that don't have a release date anymore and even then it's iffy.

    "subject to change" is Square Enix lingo for ignoring this project for the next 3 years, then changing the whole team twice, switching engines, somehow lose all the work done until then, and release it in 9 years on PS6.

    Looks like this is coming to XSX as well. It's been announced for PC and PS5 as a timed console exclusive.

    By the time this comes out on XSX the gen would be almost over lol, but let's hope it doesn't take another 5-6 years to complete.

    This started development at the beginning of last year. It's a big new open-world RPG from the Luminous devs that made FFXV. I estimate it should be out by 2022-2023 giving it a full 4-5 year dev cycle as many games take nowadays.

    direct-feed shot shows this is real-time too, with noticeable unpolished artifacts. I wonder if they're using their path-tracing solution for these cutscenes like they showed with the Luminous tech demo not long ago.

    If its anything like the past gen the ps5 pro would be out in 2023 and xbox series x x harder would be out in 2024. With the new amd road map that could be Navi 4 for both companies and 5nm ?

    Square Enix: graphics of the Playstation 5 are identical to those of PC
    July 28, 2020


    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/square-enix-graphics-of-the-playstation-5-are-identical-to-those-of-pc.html

    Edit:
    Is there a reason why he can't state "they are identical"? Are there RT shortcomings associated with console implementations vs PC?

    Because "PC" covers a to wide a range to compare anything to it exactly.
