Game developers are starting to see the value in quality PC ports


More and more game developers are starting to see the value in creating quality PC ports thanks to how disappointing this generation of consoles has been. Square Enix is one such developer, and while the long-awaited Final Fantasy XV will be a console exclusive at launch, game director Hajime Tabata claims that there’s a good chance we’ll see a PC version in the future, and that it’ll be far more than just a simple port.

Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata is keen on the idea of bringing Square Enix’s upcoming RPG to PC, but doing so wouldn’t be a simple process, at least if Tabata has his way. “I’m quite positive about the idea of ​​developing a PC version,” Tabata told French outlet JeuxVideo in a recent interview. However, his ideas for the hypothetical port are quite different than the console release Square Enix currently has in production. “This version could incorporate things that we were forced to abandon because of the limitations of home consoles,” Tabata said. “With the PC, this would be an opportunity to release a version far superior in terms of quality and tech. That said, if we choose to develop this project, the development will start from scratch by doing research of what would be the best technology to use. “It might not be a simple port of the console version,” he concluded. Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to launch worldwide on September 30 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
