Sony CES presentation dates Square Enix's Project Athia for January 2022

During Sony's CES 2021 Digital Press Event, company boss Jim Ryan made a brief appearance to talk up the success of the launch of the PlayStation 5 late last year. While his appearance didn't explicitly coincide with any gaming-related announcements, a quick footnote after the gameplay montage gave us a little bit to chew on about some upcoming RPGs for Sony's newest console. Specifically, we got our first glimpse at a possible release window for Project Athia for January 2022, only a year from now.

The following can be seen at about the 10:38 mark of Sony's Press Event video.


Project Athia was first revealed during Sony's PlayStation 5 reveal event last June, being helmed by Square Enix's Luminous Productions (Final Fantasy XV), which was officially formed in 2018. The CES video also lists a 2021 date for Horizon: Forbidden West, which was revealed during the same event.
