While the main draw of Square Enix‘s Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event was Final Fantasy XV (FFXV)’s release date, it was revealed early due to a video leak by Gamespot. However that doesn’t mean there was nothing else of note.
Aside from announcing a companion mobile game, an anime series called Brotherhood Final Fantasy XV, and Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy, a computer-generated movie, there’s also a good chance of seeing FFXV hit the PC eventually.
FFXV director Hajime Tabata told Engadget that the studio isn’t currently working on a PC version of the game. But, Tabata said he was “aware of the big call for a PC version.”
“Unfortunately we weren’t able to do simultaneous development on a PC and console version for XV,” he said. “We had to focus on the console version and our goal was to maximize, optimise everything for the HD consoles. Once that’s done, then we will definitely take a good, hard look at PC and what we need to do, and consider all our options. But right now we aren’t decided, we’re still considering a lot of things.”
We won’t be surprised to FFXV land on PC eventually and perhaps faster than the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy on Steam. Of late we’ve seen Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below available on PC merely months after its PS4 release and I Am Setsuna (earlier known as Project Setsuna) slated for PC around the same time as its release on the PS4 and PS Vita.
