Tabata: Hypothetical Final Fantasy XV PC version would take over a year to port

Fans hoping for a PC version of Final Fantasy XV may be in for a bit of a wait. Speaking with Spanish outlet Vida Extra, director Hajime Tabata said he’d like to provide an improved experience over the console offerings should they do a PC port – it just won’t be happening any time soon.

“On that hypothesis, not talking about something real, just an idea,” said Tabata. “Something like this would take us more than a year. We should work to adapt the engine, which is very laborious, and from there to develop its course.”

That said, Tabata did say his team will continue to support new hardware, such as the PlayStation 4 Pro, in the best capacity they can as well as additional PlayStation VR support following launch.

“What you saw at E3 was just a technical demo,” Tabata continued. “I’m talking about a whole new DLC you can play in VR. Not the whole game, of course… it would be additional game content – perhaps a particular part of the game to be enjoyed in virtual reality.”

Final Fantasy XV is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 29.
