Square Enix Just Released a Video of Final Fantasy XV Running on PC

By Matt Wales on at

Remember that time when Hajime Tabata, the director of Final Fantasy XV, enthused about getting the game up and running on PC? Well, one month later, that's actually happened, and Square Enix has even released a video showing the PC version in action.

However, before you get too excited, it's worth noting that the video - which was created to accompany Tabata's GDC 2017 talk charting the development of the Final Fantasy XV - only features PC footage (beginning at the 1:50 mark) by way of a tech demo. This most certainly is not official confirmation of a PC release for the game.

That said, it's hard not to be at least a little suspicious of the fact that the footage features a very conspicuous note stating that it's running on Nvidia's newly announced graphics card powerhouse, the GTX1080 Ti. If I was trying to flog my fancy new, very expensive graphics card, I'd probably want to work with Square to get a game as visually rich as Final Fantasy XV out on PC ASAP too.

Still, vague speculation means nothing without official confirmation. So, for the time being, let's just enjoy the sleek, shiny footage for what it is: a pleasant glimpse of a future which may but equally might not be.
