In an interview with Kotaku, Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata shared some details about the upcoming game, making it available for the new upgraded PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles and more. According to Tabata, he’s not been briefed yet on Microsoft’s Project Scorpio, and Square Enix has nothing planed for that console yet.
Speaking on the subject, Tabata stated, “I was there waiting in the green room [Tabata was on stage at Microsoft’s briefing to talk about Final Fantasy XV] and I go ‘Ooh wow, what’s that?'” Regarding the choice of Final Fantasy XV for the new upgraded consoles, Tabata stated: “It’d be really great though if we could have Final Fantasy XV something we can play on the current-generation Xbox One and PS4, also give them that choice that when the new, stronger-generation hardware comes out, to have them play at that level as well,” he said. “I’d really like to be able give them that.”
Tabata didn’t rule out a Windows PC version for Final Fantasy XV version either. He added that Square Enix is “thinking about a PC version.” However, fans shouldn’t expect this version to happen anytime soon. Final Fantasy XV will not be released on PC until it gets released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 first. Tabata added: “Until we’ve got the console versions finished, we really aren’t gonna think anymore about that. That really is our top priority and one thing we’re not gonna bend on is getting those console versions finished on time. We don’t want to be making excuses. We don’t want to be having regrets. We want to get these out and done in time.”
Final Fantasy XV is due out later this year on September 30. The game will be available for Windows PC and Xbox One.
