Final Fantasy XVIthe upcoming installment in the long-running JRPG series, is out on June 22nd as an exclusive for PlayStation 5. This exclusivity is a bit of a bummer like the others Final Fantasy games such as Final Fantasy VII Remake, were also available on PC. And the last major entry, Final Fantasy XV, was multi-platform. Unfortunately, at least for now, the new Final Fantasy the game will remain on PlayStation 5 only, according to the game’s maker.

Producer Naoki Yoshida, colloquially known as Yoshi-P, was interviewed at a mahjong tournament over the weekend where he was asked whether Final Fantasy XVI it will come to pc, something Square Enix confirmed when it revealed the game almost two years ago. However, despite this detail found in the footnote text at the bottom of the trailer, Yoshi-P said the release information was wrong, according to a “rough translation” from Japanese gaming news Twitter account Genki_JPN. In fact, there may not be a PC version at all, as Yoshi-P is apparently suggesting people go out and buy a PS5 instead.

“Nobody said a word about releasing a PC version,” Yoshi-P said. “Why does it seem like the PC version is coming out six months later? Don’t worry about it, buy a PS5! Sorry, I overdid it. We did our best, so look forward to it.”

Interestingly, Yoshi-P claims that no PC version is planned. Scrolling through some old ones Final Fantasy XVI trailers, like this “Awakening” from September 2020, it was definitely stated that the game is “not available on other platforms for a limited period of time after PS5 launch,” suggesting that it could at least appear on other consoles in the future. Such was the case with Final Fantasy VII Remake, where the “limited time” window was about a year. However, all recent marketing for the game, from more recent trailers to its official website, no longer mentions it coming to PC. That’s unfortunate considering others Final Fantasy games are on more platforms than just PlayStation and the fact that Sony’s latest console can still be hard to find. But in the grand scheme of things, knowing how deep Square Enix’s relationship with PlayStation is, it’s not surprising. At least the exclusivity deal should take advantage of PlayStation 5 hardware so there is no load.

my city reached out to Square Enix for clarification, but did not hear back prior to publication.

Besides sticking firmly to PlayStation consoles, Final Fantasy XVI has been rated mature for certain types of content included in the game. Specifically, according to a translation on the website of Brazil’s Ministério da Justiça, for hate crimes (yikes) and sex scenes (milo).
