FUTURE PERFECT CONTINUOUS

Future Perfect Continuous is used to talk about an event that will be in progress for some time before a second moment in the future. The action that came first is the future perfect (or, past of the future). We can identify the future perfect continuous by its structure.

The structure for perfect forms is (have + verb in past participle), and structure for continuous form is (verb to be + verb -ing).

Adding these structures (have + [to be in past participle = been] + verb -ing).

Thus, the structure for past perfect continuous is (auxiliary verb 'have' in future = will have + [to be in past participle = been] + verb -ing):

Will have been + verb in -ING
