Final Fantasy XV may be headed to PC

2 min read


Man, that Final Fantasy XV is looking good, right? Yeah, pretty much the game featuring a perfectly smooth-skinned boy band that rides around slaying monsters and huffing crystals. Ten years in, and there’s a lot that we still don’t know about Final Fantasy XV, the game formerly known as Final Fantasy Versus. But info on a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release is probably on the cards this March when Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV drops a hint or two.

What about PC though? Where is the love, maaaaaaaaaan? Turns out that Square Enix may have some love left for that platform after all, as some cyber-sleuthing has uncovered a PC release for the upcoming JRPG.

That’s according to the findings of KupoNut over on the NeoGAF forums, who did a deep dive into the JavaScript for the Final Fantasy XV event page. Tinkering around there, code was discovered for Steam and Windows 10 link placeholders, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One placeholders. Other discoveries include upcoming future additions to the page such as a trailer, schedule, FAQ and the livestream for the release date event. According to KupoNut, similar code was used for the Rise Of The Tomb Raider page.

It’s not exactly unlikely that Final Fantasy XV would see a PC release. It’d be suicidal to not release on the biggest platform around, although Final Fantasy games usually take a tad bit longer to arrive on that platform. It took four years for Final Fantasy XIII to hit PC, three years for the Lightning sequel and almost two revolutions around the Sun for Lightning to strike thrice on that platform.

But a simultaneous PC and console release? Now that’s more like it Square Enix. I’m genuinely curious to see how Final Fantasy XV runs when the visuals have been turned up to 11 on a proper PC rig.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Since the older FF games have been popping up on Steam they’ve clearly realised that there’s a big market for it there.
    A simultaneous release would be nice. Show us you care Squeenix 🙂

    • Hammersteyn

      Hopefully it’s not a Knight from Arkham

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Square usually do a decent job with their ports.

        • Alessandro Barbosa

          I’d say they’re a bit hit and miss, Just Cause 3 being a recent example 😛

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Well, it’s not WB, so that’s already a plus 😀

    • Mossel

      Yes! Simultaneous release so that we can take 4 years to buy it on special!

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Woo! XD

      Speaking of which. The new Humble Bundle is a Ubisoft one…which would’ve been great if it didn’t activate on Uplay.

      • I have always wanted Rayman Origins, not that The Division forced me on Uplay. I am so gonna get it and Child of light one day 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Depending on what else joins the bundle I might be tempted by it. Got half of what’s there already.

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          I only have Blacklist and The Crew.
          Both of which are great, and probably the best that bundle has to offer.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            No Far Cry 3? That was good.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea, sorry. I’ve got that too. Forgot that one was on the bundle as well.

    • HairyEwok

      In some way it is good news, now I can spend the R6k I would have used to buy a PS4 and do a mini upgrade on my PC.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    It’s been ages since I’ve played a good JRPG. Hopefully this’ll be one.

  • HairyEwok

    Just teeny tiny problem I have with all this…. It’s going to be port, and Square Enix does such a “great” job at porting FF games…
