FFXV's Tabata "aware of the big call for a PC version"

Final Fantasy 15 fire

I had every appendage crossed for news of a Final Fantasy 15 PC port (opens in new tab) at Square Enix's Uncovered event on March 30. It was not to be, but don't despair—director Hajime Tabata made encouraging noises in a follow-up interview (opens in new tab) with Engadget.

"Unfortunately we weren't able to do simultaneous development on a PC and console version for 15," Tabata said. "We had to focus on the console version and our goal was to maximise, optimise 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."

More (opens in new tab) and more (opens in new tab) Japanese developers are taking good, hard looks at PC, and they seem to be deciding in its favour. PC is undoubtedly the place (opens in new tab) to play the classics what with upscaling emulators, so what better place to showcase a technically demanding refresh for the Final Fantasy series? Just saying.
