The team behind Final Fantasy XV has been teasing a PC version for a while now, we even got our first look at it running back in March. Unfortunately, while there is a PC version of the game running at the Square Enix office, an official release has yet to be announced. However, that may change quite soon, as it turns out that a ‘big announcement’ is being planned for Gamescom this August.
Speaking to Japanese site GamesTalk, Final Fantasy director, Hajime Tabata confirmed that the publisher held off on making announcements at E3 this year but plans to announce a lot of Final Fantasy XV related stuff later on in the Summer.
Here is the full quote translated by Siliconera: “That’s right. We’ve been very busy. We must make it so that we can announce some proper good announcements for the summer”, Tabata then went on to add that the team is planning to “share some good information at Gamescom”.
Now there is the possibility that these announcements will just be further DLCs, like the Gladios and Prompto episodes, which have released for Final Fantasy XV so far. However, Tabata has been very keen about a PC version of the game for a long time now and has repeatedly discussed it in interviews before. Beyond that, we have seen the PC version in action and know it exists. At this point, I’d be willing to bet the PC version will show up for a proper announcement at some point soon. That said, I wouldn’t expect it to release until 2018.
KitGuru Says: I was revisiting Final Fantasy XV just last night on the PS4 Pro, unfortunately the console can’t quite deliver smooth gameplay. However, that shouldn’t be the case on a PC, so I am very much hoping that an official announcement is made. Would you guys pick up Final Fantasy XV on PC?
