The Final Fantasy XVI might be a timed PS5 exclusive, with the PC version releasing later on. Previously it was confirmed to be coming for both PC and Sony’s console; it looks like the title will launch exclusively for PS5 based on a limited period.
Suppose that video is assumed to be a promotional PS5 video from Sony. The attractive video was recently uploaded to the Brazilian PlayStation YouTube channel and showed off upcoming games like Deathloop, Final Fantasy XVI, and Ghostwire Tokyo.
The interesting thing is that during the trailer for the upcoming Square Enix title, a small line reads that the title is going to be a timed-exclusive for the next-gen console of Sony. According to the translated lines, “Not available on other platforms for a limited time after launching on PS5”. Below there is a screenshot showing the line in Portuguese:
Sony and Square Enix haven’t told yet anything about the game being timed-exclusive to PS5, so there is still the possibility that Final Fantasy XVI will launch simultaneously on PS5 and PC. As per some previous rumors, it will not be surprising if the title will indeed be exclusive to Sony’s console for some limited time.
In September 2020, during the PS5 showcase from Sony, they announced the Final Fantasy XVI. The game is being produced by Final Fantasy XIV producer Naoki Yoshida and directed by Hiroshi Takai.
“From the establishment of an all-new development environment to learning the ins-and-outs of the PS5, the team and I have taken on countless challenges during our journey to bring you the sixteenth chapter in the storied Final Fantasy franchise”, Takai said upon the game’s reveal. “And though we’re pouring our hearts and souls into this project each and every day, it may still be some time before we can get it into your hands. However, I promise it will be worth the wait!”
