Coming to PlayStation 5 and maybe PC? Who knows anymore.
Final Fantasy XVI

Today at the PlayStation 5 Showcase, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy XVI for the PlayStation 5. During the event, the trailer was shown off on a PC emulating PS5 hardware. At the end of the Showcase trailer, it said Final Fantasy XVI was also coming to PC.

The standalone trailer, embedded below, mentions nothing about the PC.

So this PC release is stuck in limbo somewhere and neither Square Enix nor Sony are saying anything to confirm a PC release at present.

Well, whatever. Here's your new trailer. Get hype about it if you're getting a PS5 and prepare for disappointment if you're not planning on getting one. According to the producer on the game, Naoki Yoshida, we won't hear anything more about this game until some time in 2021.

In fact, as I was typing this up, a new "source" says that Final Fantasy XVI is exclusive to the PlayStation 5 for six months, at which point it will come to PC. Then, six months after that, it's free to go to other platforms like the Xbox Series X. I do not know how reliable this person is and would be inclined to not trust them until we get some reliable sources here.

Comment from Producer Naoki Yoshida
FINAL FANTASY XVI producer (that’s right, just producer) Naoki Yoshida here. How did you enjoy the trailer? The exclusive footage, comprised of both battles and cutscenes running in real-time, represents but a fraction of what our team has accomplished since the start of development on this, an all-new FINAL FANTASY game. In that span, the team’s size has grown from a handful of core members to a full-fledged unit that continues to polish and build upon what they have created so far, all to provide players an experience unmatched in terms of story and gameplay.

Our next big information reveal is scheduled for 2021, so in the meantime, I expect everyone to have fun speculating, as we have a lot in store—not only for FINAL FANTASY XVI, but for FINAL FANTASY XIV, too. Needless to say, I’ll be working hard on both!
