More "Final Fantasy" Games Could Make Their Way to PC in the Future

RPG franchise has mostly been on consoles, but that might change

Whether you're a PC player who has felt left out of the Final Fantasy fun—with the exception of online entries like XI and XIV—or just want to experience the games on a different platform, the future may be getting brighter for you. According to Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase, Square Enix is interested in bringing future games to PC.

 

While speaking with Eurogamer, Kitase talked about how all three Final Fantasy XIII games were built on PC in the early stages of development. They would then make the transition to consoles, but Kitase said it would have been possible to make a PC version. Some of the things holding them back this time around were the market situation and security issues. 

 

As for the future:

"But we see potential in it and there are lots of regions and countries where PC is very strong. So in terms of our hope of being able to deliver our games to every single country in the world and to as many gamers as possible, yes, we would definitely be interested in pursuing that route in the future." 

 

In the meantime, you can currently play older games like Final Fantasy VII and VIII on PC, both of which Kitase said have been successful.
