Tabata “Thinking About” PC Version Of Final Fantasy 15

When Final Fantasy 15 launched last year, it was a console exclusive, and it still is. There is still no official word from Square on a PC version of the game. But director Hajime Tabata says he’s thinking about it!

In a recent Famitsu interview, Tabata says “I’d like to release the game on PC as a technical attempt. I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines, and we personally would like to see it, too.”

He’s also open to allowing mods on PC. “I would like to try developing on PC to pursue a unique way of playing with PC-exclusive features like making your own quests and enjoying the world using things like mods.” This probably means no mods will ever be allowed on the console versions.

But as for the game as-is, people have wondered if the areas you can’t access without glitching to them (such as the land you normally can only ride a train through) will be filled with content and accessible in a future update. Tabata did not rule it out, but said since no work has begun on such a project, fans shouldn’t expect it next morning.

“There is a large map being used on the train route in the second half of the game. Since that area isn’t completely made, opening it up as an area you can freely traverse is difficult as is. We might remake playable areas in future expansions, but since that would take a year, it is not currently in our plans. For argument’s sake, if we were to prepare new fields, Insomnia would also be a candidate, but that also would take a year’s worth of work.”
