Square Enix wants to bring Final Fantasy games to PC
Final Fantasy series producer says Square Enix is 'very interested' in bringing console-exclusive series to PC.
The Final Fantasy series may have a future on PC, series producer Yoshinori Kitase has revealed.
The producer revealed that while it was an option for Square Enix to make a PC version, the team ultimately "decided against it". Kitase cited the "market situation" and "complex issues like security" as reasons why a PC version of the game did not go ahead.
However, the recent release of Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 8 on digital platform Steam proved to be successful, renewing the company's interest in the platform.
"It's an early stage for us," Kitase said. "We haven't got an awful lot of experience in this field. So when we have more know-how and experience in this market, we would be very interested."
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII was released earlier this month. The game marks the final instalment in the Final Fantasy XIII universe, and concludes the story of protagonist Lightning.
The newest entry into the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XV, was announced last year. The game has been confirmed for a PS4 and Xbox One release, but Square Enix is reportedly undecided on releasing a PC version.
