Final Fantasy XV PC version is currently in consideration

While Square Enix isn't making any promises, a 'consideration' is better than nothing.

Final Fantasy XV is expected to finally be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30th, leaving Square Enix fans on PC to be left without their own version of the upcoming JRPG. Even though FFXV hasn’t been announced for PC, it isn’t completely out of the question.

Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata spoke with Engadget during Square Enix’s Uncovered live event last night regarding a possible PC port. "Unfortunately we weren't able to do simultaneous development on a PC and console version for XV," he said. "We had to focus on the console version and our goal was to maximize, optimize everything for the HD consoles. Once that's done, then we will definitely take a good, hard look at PC and what we need to do, and consider all our options. But right now we aren't decided, we're still considering a lot of things.” Tabata-san followed up by saying he was “aware of the big call for a PC version.”

Square Enix has been publishing PC games for several years, and even going as far as releasing once-thought console exclusives onto the platform, like Dragon Quest Heroes. In fact, nearly all Final Fantasy games have eventually made their way to PC in one form or another, which would make us believe Square Enix has plans for a release of Final Fantasy XV on the platform. The real question here is how long will PC players have to wait?

      It's not a question of if, only a question of when. Square has recently woken up to the PC market, it's clear their strategy is to have all Final Fantasy titles (and maybe even all Square titles) available on PC. And with how easy a transition from PS4/XBO to PC is, we'll see FFXV on PC eventually. Square is also very smart (or evil, depending on how you look at it) about how they release across different platforms and the possibility of sales cannibalization. They don't want PC sales to negatively effect console sales, so they will always stagger platform releases.

        How would PC sales cannibalize console sales, and why would that matter to Square? a sale is a sale right? It's not like they have to consider trade ins either.

      Since they are banking so much on this game I would be surprised if it wasn't near the console release date
