Final Fantasy producer Yoshinori Kitase has stated that Square Enix “would definitely be interested” in bringing future Final Fantasy titles to PC.
“Let’s not forget, when we developed the Final Fantasy XIII series, all three titles, at the early stages of development we were working on PC,” Kitase recently told Eurogamer. ”Then we had to port it to the consoles. As far as the technology is concerned, it would have been possible for us to make a PC version, but we decided against it for two reasons: we looked at the market situation and we didn’t think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around.
“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.”
Square Enix is also interested in bringing more Final Fantasy titles to Steam, following the success of Final Fantasy VII and VIII. ”Final Fantasy VII and VIII are now available on PC and they’ve been proving quite popular,” he said. “It’s an early stage for us. We haven’t got an awful lot of experience in this field. So when we have more know-how and experience in this market we would be very interested,” he said.
Kitase revealed last week that the latest entry in the series, Final Fantasy XV, is “quite far into development.”
