During the “Letter from the Producer Live” show of the upcoming show 6.1 Patch for Final Fantasy XIV, there was a Q&A section with Producer/Director Naoki Yoshida, Global Community Producer Toshio Moroshi, and Catherine Kuinar of English Localization. During this segment, the team revealed that former English translator Cooji Fox has moved on from XIV and is currently working on Final Fantasy XVI.
One of Square Enix’s most prolific American translators, Michael Christopher Koji Fox, has worked with the company since the early 2000s. Fox’s work on subtitles and subtitles for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and its expansions has been praised by fans. However, Fox hasn’t been playing a leading role in some recent expansions, with Cwynar taking the lead after the Shadowbringers.
It turns out that the reason Fox is no longer the main compiler for FF XIV is because Fox is too busy working on FF XVI. But Fox remains a member of the FF XIV translation and localization team in a supervisory and advisory position.
Final Fantasy XVI is the next major title of the prestigious Final Fantasy series, which was first announced in 2020. Since this initial announcement, news regarding the game has been minimal. Yoshida promised that more information about the game would be revealed in 2021, but that year came and went without new information. Yoshida then apologized for the lack of news and promised new information about the game in the spring of 2022.
