The Granblue Fantasy franchise's official YouTube channel began streaming a 23-minute English-subtitled gameplay video for the upcoming Granblue Fantasy: Relink game on Thursday. The video features commentary by the game's director Tetsuya Fukuhara.

Cygames revealed on December 12 during its "Granblue Fes 2020" virtual event that it will release the game for PlayStation 5 in addition to the previously announced PlayStation 4 in 2022. The game will have cross-play compatibility for its multiplayer mode between the two consoles.

The game is planned for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish localizations. Game director Tetsuya Fukuhara reportedly stated in February 2019 that the game will have a simultaneous worldwide release.

Cygames also announced in February 2019 that it was taking over development of the game from Platinum Games.

The game is an action role-playing game featuring illustrations by Cygames and CyDesignation. Cygames' Koichi Haruta is producing the game, Tetsuya Fukuhara is directing the game, Hideo Minaba is designing the characters, and Nobuo Uematsu and Tsutomu Narita are composing the music. The game will feature a new story.

Players will get to choose between an unnamed male (voiced by Yūki Ono) or female (voiced by Hisako Kanemoto) main character. Other allied characters confirmed for the game include Lyria (Nao Tōyama), Vyrn (Rie Kugimiya), Katalina (Miyuki Sawashiro), Rackam (Hiroaki Hirata), Io (Yukari Tamura), Eugen (previously voiced by Keiji Fujiwara), and Rosetta (Rie Tanaka). Furycane will be a primal beast in the game.

Cygames released the original Granblue Fantasy smartphone game in 2014.
