Final Fantasy XVI - PC Version in Development

by Hiddenx, 16:26

Rock Paper Shotgun reports that the PC version of Final Fantasy XVI is finally in development:

Final Fantasy 16 PC release confirmed, freeing Sexy Cid and Devil May Clive from PS5 purgatory

FF16 DLC also in the works

After much umming and erring which I'm sure has nothing to do with any Sony exclusivity agreements, Square Enix have confirmed that Final Fantasy 16 is, indeed, coming to PC. "We are aware that many of you have been asking for a PC version", producer Naoki Yoshida said in a statement on the platform formerly known as Twitter. "So allow me to take this opportunity to officially announce that development on a PC version is currently underway." There's no Final Fantasy 16 PC release date as yet. Yoshida hopes to be able to share more - together with some insights on the first wodge of Final Fantasy 16 DLC - "before the end of the year".
