Final Fantasy XVIThe new game of the long-running JRPG series is coming out exclusively for PlayStation 5 on June 22. This exclusivity is a bit of a bummer like any other final fantasy games like Final Fantasy VII Remakewas also available on PC. And the last mainline entry, Final Fantasy XVIt was multiplatform. Unfortunately, at least for now, the new final fantasy According to the producer of the game, the game will only stay on PlayStation 5.
Producer Naoki Yoshida, popularly known as Yoshi-P, interviewed at a Mahjong tournament where is the weekend Final Fantasy XVI It used to come to PC, something Square Enix confirmed the game when it announced almost two years ago. However, according to a “rough translation” by Japanese gaming news Twitter account Genki_JPN, Yoshi-P said that despite this detail found in the footnote text at the bottom of the trailer, the broadcast information was inaccurate. In fact, a PC release may never come, as Yoshi-P has apparently suggested people go out and buy a PS5 instead.
“No one has said anything about the release of a PC version,” Yoshi-P said. “Why is a PC version coming out six months later? Don’t worry about it, buy a PS5! Sorry, I overdid it. We did our best, please look forward to it.”
It’s interesting that Yoshi-P claims that a PC release is not planned. Rub some old ones Final Fantasy XVI trailers, Like “The Awakening” in September 2020It has been strongly stated that the game is “not available on other platforms for a limited time after it’s release on PS5,” and it has been suggested that it could hit other consoles, at least in the future. that was the case Final Fantasy VII Remake, where the “limited time” window was about a year. However, all the recent marketing for the game, from the newer trailers to the official website, no longer mentions the game will be coming to PC. this is unfortunate considering the others final fantasy games on more platforms than just PlayStation and The fact that Sony’s newest console can still be hard to find. But overall, it’s not surprising to know how deep Square Enix’s relationship with PlayStation is. At least the exclusivity agreement Take advantage of PlayStation 5’s hardware So it won’t load.
