We just got some new about Granblue Fantasy: Relink. The Producer, Yuito Kimura has given a statement. For those who want to read it in text it reads
Regarding the Update to the Release Date
The development team has been hard at work getting Granblue Fantasy: Relink ready for its target release date in 2022. We understand the excitement players have for this game, so it is with utmost regret that we announce that the release date will be pushed back a second time to 2023.
Although internal and external circumstances pertaining to the novel coronavirus have been the primary hindrance to the development process, the entire staff has spared no effort in pushing to make up for lost time. However, considering the large-scale scope of this title, we believe more time is needed to further polish and optimize details and gameplay as we approach the final stretch.
All graphical resources, scenario pieces, voices, music, and other assets are in a completed state. At this stage, we are focused on refining gameplay balance, debugging, improving audio and graphical fidelity, and making general improvements to the overall experience. We would like to ask for a little more of your patience.
Further information was slated to be revealed in June 2022, but at the moment, our plan is to share more details in December 2022. We can’t wait to show you what we have!

Those waiting on more info to come must be disappointed that we won’t see anything more til December of 2022. I personally was hoping to play the game this year, but I guess the state of how development has been going the past two to three years means we got another year to wait til we can get our hands on Granblue Fantasy: Relinked.
The release date for Relink has been changed, with details posted to the official website. We sincerely apologize to everyone excited for Relink.https://t.co/i67yCmjkAJ

Granblue Fantasy: Relink is an action JRPG detailing events and characters from the mobile game Granblue Fantasy. A previous game was made in this world as a fighting game called Granblue Fantasy: Versus. This was going to be the big budget JRPG world immersion many of its fans, such as I, was hoping for so I could see some of the world that I only was able to see prior on the phone. I am personally a Djeeta fan so I hope to see more of her in this installment as well!
Granblue Fantasy: Relink will release 2023, with further information about the game to be revealed December, 2022.
