After a successful launch on PlayStation 5, Final Fantasy 16 producer Naoki Yoshida has announced a PC port and two paid DLCs are on the way.
Released to the PlayStation 5 this June, the latest instalment of the Final Fantasy series was met with raving reviews. However, many fans were still disappointed to hear it would be a PlayStation exclusive and called for it to be brought to PC.
Luckily for them, that could be happening sooner than we first thought.
PC Ports and DLCs
This news comes courtesy of Yoshida who posted a video on the game’s official Twitter account on September 3. It was here he updated fans on the arrival of the PC version as well as reveal the team are working on two paid DLCs.
“We’ve seen so many opinions and reactions from our community of Final Fantasy 16 players,” says Yoshida. “But one thing that came through particularly strongly was how people wanted to see more of Valisthea’s story and spend more time with her inhabitants. To accommodate, the development team has started work on two installments of paid DLC.”
However, fans will have to wait a little longer to find out when they can expect these additions. In good news, Yoshida confirmed that there will be more information “before the end of the year.”
This means we could be looking at at least a mid-2024 release.
Final Fantasy 16 Updates
Although there is a bit of a wait for all that good stuff, the team is still working hard on bringing updates to FF16.
The game recently saw a free update which included a weapons skin change feature, more outfits for main characters and general quality of life updates.
So there you have it. It is exciting to hear the game will be receiving at least two DLCs, especially considering the team did not have any initial plans to release any. We for one are glad they had a change of heart.
