Final Fantasy XV May Get 'Far Superior' PC Version: Tabata

Final Fantasy XV - set to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year - might get a version for Windows PCs, according to game director Hajime Tabata.

"I'm quite positive about the idea of developing a PC version, but I would like to make a very different project if possible," Tabata told French video gaming site JeuxVideo, which was translated by Nova Crystallis. "The reason I'm interested is that a PC version would propel the game to another technical level."

"I have in mind a version of Final Fantasy XV that is more technically developed. This version could incorporate things that we were forced to abandon because of the limitations of home consoles. With the PC, this would be an opportunity to release a version far superior in terms of quality and tech."

While PC fans of Final Fantasy will be glad to hear they haven't been forgotten by Square Enix, Tabata said it would take a while as they aren't interested in doing a "simple port".

"That said, if we choose to develop this project, the development will start from scratch by doing research of what would be the best technology to use. It might not be a simple port of the console version," he added.

Tabata also spoke on the issue of framerate, and said they were in a "process of optimisation" to ensure a better framerate. As for downloadable content post release, he said they want to provide something that "extend[s] the gaming experience" and will make a proper announcement sometime in the summer, which is between June and August.
