Final Fantasy 16 is now in development for PC as has been confirmed by the game’s producer Naoki Yoshida. The game was officially announced back in September 2020 and was also confirmed to be limited to PS5 for six months after the launch of the game, which took place in June of this year.
The official account of the game on X posted a video of Yoshida sharing what’s upcoming in the game, where he announced that the development of the PC Version of Final Fantasy 16 is underway. “Finally, while Final Fantasy XVI was released as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, we are aware that many of you have been asking for a PC version,” Yoshida said. “So, allow me to take this opportunity to officially announce that development on a PC version is currently underway”, he added.
He further announced two new premium DLC packs that are in development and will be available for fans who want to explore more chapters of Clive’s adventures in Valisthea. Moreover, a free update was released yesterday for PS5 players that includes more choices of costumes for several characters, a new Onion Sword weapon, and the ability to change the appearance of Clive’s weapons, all while keeping the stats of the equipped weapon.
Yoshida has mentioned before that there were no plans to introduce any DLC for Final Fantasy 16 but Square Enix, the developer of the game, was forced to reconsider its decision due to strong feedback from the fans.
Final Fantasy 16 PC release date
As for the release date of the PC port of Final Fantasy 16 and the two new DLC packs, it is unclear when they’ll be available as of yet. However, Yoshida mentioned in the video, “I hope to be able to give you more information on both the upcoming DLC and the PC version before the end of the year, so please stay tuned.” Xbox fans are also looking forward to the possibility of the title coming to their consoles, but once again, there’s no information on when or if that would happen.
