Sq. Enix apparently rejected Xbox supply for Last Fantasy XVI in favor of Sony’s

The following mainline installment of Sq. Enix’ legendary RPG franchise, Last Fantasy XVI is ready to launch on June 22, almost 3 years after it was first introduced. Anytime a Last Fantasy sport is launched it’s an enormous deal, and this one is not any completely different. What’s a good larger deal is that the sport was introduced as a (timed) PlayStation 5 unique.

A current Recreation Informer interview shed new gentle on why Last Fantasy XVI gained’t be coming to different platforms for awhile. The topic of the interview, sport producer and designer Naoki Yoshida (aka “Yoshi P”) had this to say on the PS5 exclusivity.

Last Fantasy, being one in every of Sq. Enix’s essential franchises up there with Dragon Quest and the Kingdom Hearts collection – once we do start improvement, we do method a number of platforms, a number of firms, about releasing the sport. And whenever you method them, they’re going to come back again to us with their presents.”

Whether or not the identical phrases are placed on the desk for every of those platforms stays unclear. Sq. Enix has had a longstanding relationship with Sony going all the best way again to the times of the unique PlayStation and Sony’s entry into the online game business.

In any case, a Home windows PC model of Last Fantasy XVI isn’t out of the query as soon as the timed PS5 exclusivity expires. However for Xbox, it stays much less probably contemplating that Last Fantasy 7 Remake by no means materialized for Microsoft’s console.
