More than two years ago, we reported that Sony had snapped up Final Fantasy XVI as a PlayStation exclusive, with Square Enix also providing a statement on the matter. For now, PS5 is the only confirmed platform for FF16's 2023 release, and a new trailer seems to suggest that exclusivity on Sony's current-gen console is for a six-month period.
The news comes from a new PlayStation promo video posted by Sony, which discloses the exclusivity period.
Final Fantasy 16 exclusivity has been a hot topic since the game was first revealed. At the time, an initial trailer confirmed a PC release, but that version was eventually replaced by a clip that only mentioned the PS5 as a target platform.
In all of this, an Xbox version has never been mentioned, and given that we still don't have Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Xbox, we aren't confident XVI will ever make its way over. As of right now, Square Enix has yet to confirm any future platforms beyond PS5, seemingly for at least six months.
Are you as confused as us by all of this? Would you like to see more FF on Xbox? Let us know!
