What’s new in the world of Granblue Fantasy: Relink? Not much — and expect it to stay that way for a while. In the recently held Summer 2020 stream, it was revealed by Cygames that we shouldn’t expect any major announcements about the game until December’s Granblue Fes 2020.

As noted above, today Cygames healed their special Granblue Summer 2020 stream where the discussed some new developments in the game. With this in mind, Granblue Fantasy: Relink Director Tetsuya Fukuhara noted that new info and the game’s release day estimate should be coming specifically at the December festival.

While everyone could rightfully assume that we would be hearing about the game at the biggest Granblue festival of the year, it’s noteworthy that we likely won’t be hearing much more before then. Seemingly the people on stream even seemed to acknowledge that these reveals are being stretched out, likely due to the current state of the world.

On the bright side. Fukuhara-san also noted that the game’s development is going well — with improvements coming rapidly. The image (seen below) is actually an in-game 3D screenshot — showing off the beauty of Relink.

In recent Relink news, Fukuhara-san had noted that the games could be getting ports to both PS5 and Google Stadia in a recent Famitsu interview. They also recently declined to give a release date, noting that they only want to announce when “it’s just a bit more realistic.” Without a doubt they will likely know that timeframe by December 2020.
