Naoki Yoshida, producer of Final Fantasy XVI, has addressed rumors about a PC release of the game during a recent live stream for Final Fantasy XIV.

When asked about the possibility of a PC version, Yoshida responded,

“I don’t know, people are talking about a PC version, but no one has said anything about a PC version. Why are they making it sound as if the PC version will be out in six months? Just buy a PS5, (laughs).”

This statement seems to contradict earlier announcements that the game would be released on both PC and PS5, with a six month exclusivity period for the latter.

However, there has been no official confirmation of a PC release aside from Yoshida’s comments.

Final Fantasy XVI is set to launch on June 22, 2023, exclusively for the PS5.
