A couple a long time back, numerous shops around the website ran the story that Netflix is established to get a Closing Fantasy series but not only have we heard nothing about it, but it’s also nonetheless unclear regardless of whether Netflix is even going to be the property of it. What’s going on? Let’s investigate.
Spanning a long time, the Ultimate Fantasy fantasy IP from Square Enix has witnessed dozens of online video activity entries and loads of other media as well no matter if that be movies or Television.
In June 2019, it was noted by several stores and was noted by the likes of Esquire. The demonstrate in problem is a are living-action adaptation of Final Fantasy XIV, the preferred MMO and is the fourteenth entry in the Last Fantasy collection.
But, to day, when there is a Last Fantasy XIV exhibit in enhancement, it’s not currently assigned to Netflix.
Let’s dive into in which the confusion started.
Initially announced by Hivemind in June 2019 (the output organization for reveals like The Expanse and even functioning on Netflix’s The Witcher series), a stay-action sequence Ultimate FANTASY XIV series was declared as a partnership with Sony Images Tv.
The PR release is nonetheless accessible on the net and if you dig by way of the information, you’ll see completely zero mention of Netflix’s involvement.
Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton are the principal two names attached to the task thus much.
So the place did the Netflix link come in? The earliest indicator we’ve observed is from a Japanese source that was cited on Wikipedia and a few of other areas that backlinks Netflix to the job.
Launched around the similar time as the unique announcement, the report straight ties Netflix to the venture but from our investigation and inquiries (like to Netflix who did not supply remark) Netflix is not at present associated.
If you are questioning irrespective of whether the sequence is even continue to in improvement, Jake Thornton presented an update in late 2020.
I know this is not the information folks want (which includes us!), but unfortunately which is all I can say at this time. Retain sending the excellent vibes and maybe, when all this has handed, we’ll get the demonstrate we all want to see, and will all take a look at Eorzea collectively. #FFXIV

So at the moment, the collection is nonetheless in early growth and hasn’t been connected to any streamer or network as of yet.
Of program, the series could stop up coming to Netflix. Sony Images Tv is basically a cost-free agent distributor. Not like many other even bigger manufacturing businesses that have their have streaming providers, Sony has no person loyalty and tends to distribute their demonstrates to in the vicinity of sufficient just about every streamer hence significantly together with loads to Netflix.
Further rumors for other Remaining Fantasy titles have occur in 2021 with Netflix reportedly working with Square Enix on a Closing Fantasy 7 Remake Anime collection. Once again very little formal below either.
Ultimate Fantasy is on Netflix in some variety, on the other hand. Again in September 2017, Netflix introduced Ultimate FANTASY XIV Dad of Mild. More not long ago on April 1st in 2021, Netflix US obtained Kingsglaive: Closing Fantasy XV solely (whilst it wasn’t branded as a Netflix Initial).
There you have it, hope that’s not much too disappointing for any individual seeking Final Fantasy XIV to occur to Netflix.
