Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida has provided an update on the PC version of the RPG, stating that a demo will likely be released sometime next year.

The details:

  • In an interview with Game Informer, Yoshida stated that development on the port was progressing well, but Square Enix has yet to announce a release date. “In terms of where we are in development currently, we’re trying to figure out the final stages of optimisation right now,” Yoshida said. “When we can release the PC version might be dependent on that – the system requirements and specifications for PC that players will need, so we’re trying to figure that out. Naturally, [the PC specifications] are looking to be somewhat high.”

  • The producer went on to confirm that Square intends to release a demo for the game not "too distant in the future" and that "it won't be a year, it won't be two years, it will probably be shorter than that."

  • FF16 was released as a temporary PS5 exclusive in June 2023 and received its first expansion in December, with the second DLC set to arrive this spring.Yoshida stated in the interview that there is unlikely to be any additional content for FF16 after the second expansion as "the team does want to take on a new challenge and move on to a different project."
