    Default SquareEnix Wants to bring other Final Fantasy games to PC

    The Final Fantasy series may have a future on PC, series producer Yoshinori Kitase has revealed.
    Speaking in a recent interview with Eurogamer, Kitase stated that the early stages of development for the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy saw the team working on PC, before porting the game to consoles.
    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.

    It's most likely a money issue and since a lot of people torrent there games. I have a good feeling that we will see more and more games on the PC though with the release of Steambox and steam in general. I don't think were far away from most games getting a PC release.

    Edit: I would love for more FF games to come to the PC. Hopefully they hurry up and make a really good Final Fantasy game so we can get either a sequel or remake of one of the classics.

    Only upside for a PC version would be that I could just *cough* it and see if it's worth the full price. Will most likely prefer a ps4 version, though.
