The best part is that the game will be free and will launch on the 26th of June 2018 for the PlayStation 4 , Xbox One and PC. Fans can now preorder the Xbox One and PlayStation®4 system versions exclusively from the SQUARE ENIX Online Store.

Prosecutors said over 15 victims had been bilked since late previous year of more than $100,000 as McFarland and his workers sold non-existent tickets to the 2018 Met Gala, Burning Man 2018, Coachella 2018, the 2018 Grammy Awards, Super Bowl LII and a Cleveland Cavaliers game that would include a team dinner with Lebron James.

According to the U.S. Attorney, around March 2018 McFarland owned "NYC VIP Access", a company that purported to sell tickets to high profile events, but in reality no tickets existed.

Prosecutors say McFarland committed crimes even after he pleaded guilty in March to defrauding investors and vendors in the Fyre Festival. Both charges carry up a maximum of a 20 year sentence. He's also accused of attempting to hide his involvement with NYC VIP Access by posing as the company's other employees. He tricked at least 15 people into buying the nonexistent tickets.
