'Final Fantasy 15' release date, news: PC version highly unlikely to be developed


Although the director of game development for the upcoming video game, “Final Fantasy XV” wants the highly anticipated role-playing title to be released to PC, he recently admitted that it would definitely take a lot of time and effort to do so.

This is just one proof that the game is very far from being developed for the Microsoft Windows platform. “Final Fantasy XV” is scheduled to be released next month for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and based on director Hajime Tabata’s revelation, fans of the game who are hoping to see it get a PC release will have to wait at least a year, provided game developer Square Enix decides to do it.

“On that hypothesis, not talking about something real, just an idea, if we worked on a PC version what I have very clear is that we would work to provide a better version of what we have now on consoles,” Tabata said in an interview with Spanish website Vida Extra, as translated by Gadgets NDTV.

The release of the open world role-playing game, “Final Fantasy XV” is rather a unique and awkward one considering that the most recent trend in video gaming is that titles are usually launched with compatibility for the three main platforms PC, Xbox One and PS4.

The game is developed by Square Enix and is the fifteenth major installment in the highly successful “Final Fantasy” gaming franchise. But unlike the previous main installments, this one is quite different for the fact that it is expected to be showcasing a darker atmosphere. Also, there is reportedly a shift in the way the game’s graphics are shown since there will be more realistic human characters and environments. The game will likewise be featuring an action-based battle system.

“Final Fantasy XV” is set for a worldwide release on Nov. 29.
