The director and producer of Final Fantasy 14, Naoki Yoshida, dice que Negotiations between Square Enix and Microsoft to bring the game to Xbox are “positive”, but they are still ongoing.
In an interview with Easy Allies, Yoshida spoke more about the current state of a possible version of Final Fantasy XIV for Xbox platforms. While the director was hesitant to confirm any new details about the game, he noted that conversations between Square Enix and Microsoft have taken a positive turn.
“So I feel bad for saying the same thing every time.”Yoshida said when asked if there was any news about an Xbox version of FF14. “But still we are in conversations with Microsoft and I feel our conversations are going on a positive note. I don’t want to say we don’t have an Xbox version, but I hope the time to deliver some kind of update for players is coming soon. “continued the director.
“I’m sure there are many things that people want to ask about the subject and there are many things that I would love to share, but I am afraid I cannot divulge those details. “Yoshida concluded.
Despite the current lack of an Xbox port, the game performed very well on PC and PlayStation consoles. After a soft reboot with Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn and a series of subsequent expansions, the MMORPG has had a growing popularity in recent years. Currently, speculation even suggests that Square Enix may have temporarily halted digital sales of the game due to servers briefly congested.
During a preview event for the game’s next expansion (Endwalker), Yoshida spoke more about the popularity of FF14. The director confirmed that the MMORPG has become the most profitable game in the Final Fantasy series to date. In addition, he confirmed that he had recently passed the 24 million players all over the world.
Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker is scheduled to launch on November 23 2021. In addition to having hours and hours of new story content, the expansion will also include several new areas, as well as two new classes of work. Remember that in the video above you can enjoy 45 minutes of gameplay in a new dungeon and with a new class.
