Final Fantasy XVI: The PC Port’s Launch Isn’t Far Away

Already released last summer for PlayStation 5, Final Fantasy (which could be derisively called Devil May Clive for its gameplay, as the main character is named Clive) will soon be coming to Steam (and likely the Epic Games Store).


Naoki Yoshida, producer of Final Fantasy XVI, talked about the long-awaited PC version of the game in an interview with Japanese publication Famitsu. According to Yoshi-P, development is progressing well, but there is still work to be done to optimize the version that will support both DLCs. The producer was unable to give a release date, but he did say that there’s no need to wait a full year, as the exclusivity period (which we’ve heard is six months) has already expired, so Final Fantasy XVI will definitely be available on Valve’s platform by June.

The PC port will be released shortly after the official announcement, as Yoshida believes that long marketing cycles don’t really suit the PC market. So it’s possible that Square Enix will suddenly reveal the PC port of Final Fantasy XVI in April and then release it in May (we’re just guessing here!). There will also be a demo so you can see how the game would run on your machine, but since they’ll probably be using Denuvo in it (Square Enix has experience with putting it in free stuff…), you’ll want to be prepared for higher system requirements.

The existence of a Final Fantasy XVI Complete Edition was also confirmed by Yoshida. This edition will include the base game and both DLCs. The second, The Rising Tide, was recently covered in more detail and will be accompanied by a new free update that will allow you to customize the button layout on the PlayStation 5.

So a PC port of Final Fantasy XVI is likely to be released sometime in the spring. If Square Enix confirms this, we’ll let you know about it and the system requirements.
