Final Fantasy gamers rejoice! According to series producer Yoshinori Kitase, it looks like future Final Fantasy games will make their way to the PC. Kitase talked with Eurogamer, saying that while the series has a long history on consoles, this could change moving into the future.
Kitase said: "Let's not forget, when we developed the Final Fantasy 13 series, all three titles, at the early stages of development we were working on PC. Then we had to port it to the consoles. As far as the technology is concerned, it would have been possible for us to make a PC version, but we decided against it for two reasons: we looked at the market situation and we didn't think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around".
It's interesting to note that Kitase said it "would have been possible for us to make a PC version" but there were reasons behind it. He continued: "But we see potential in it and there are lots of regions and countries where PC is very strong. So in terms of our hope of being able to deliver our games to every single country in the world and to as many gamers as possible, yes, we would definitely be interested in pursuing that route in the future".
This should be exciting news, because right now no games under the Final Fantasy 13 umbrella are available on PC, with Final Fantasy 15 only confirmed for the Xbox One and PS4. He finished by saying: "It's an early stage for us. We haven't got an awful lot of experience in this field. So when we have more know-how and experience in this market we would be very interested".
