Forspoken preview

Future action role-playing game Forspoken is being created by Final Fantasy 15's co-creators. It is being published by Square Enix and appears to put a fresh spin on the company's standard RPG selections.

Forspoken tells the story of Frey, a New Yorker who is whisked away to the fantastical realm of Athia. Then, while fending off terrifying foes that are out to get her, she must utilise her magical talents to try to get home.

Forspoken, a PS5 console-exclusive title, will launch on January 24, 2023, for PlayStation 5 and PC.

The game's release date was originally set for May 2022, but it was postponed by five months so that its developers would have enough time to polish the RPG. After being assured it would arrive on October 11, this was then once again postponed in July, as revealed via a tweet, moving it into the next year.

Forspoken will initially only be available on the PlayStation 5, although it doesn't preclude a subsequent Xbox release. Forspoken (or Project Athia, as it was known at the time), which appears in the 'new and upcoming games' trailer(opens in new tab) posted by the PlayStation YouTube account in December 2020, has a tagline stating that it won't be available on other consoles for at least 24 months after its release date.

Therefore, it appears that Forspoken is a limited-time PS5 platform exclusive. However, you shouldn't anticipate it to arrive on Xbox Series X|S until at least January 2025. Forspoken is being created to take advantage of current-gen hardware, so although a PS4 or Xbox One release isn't out of the question, don't count on it.
