There are several games in the Final Fantasy series, and each one offers an assortment of environments, moods, and gameplay.
The Final Fantasy series has made debuts on several consoles throughout the years, but they have always found their place on Sony systems, including Final Fantasy XVI. Nevertheless, this can make you inquire about whether Final Fantasy XVI will be available on PC and Xbox.
Naoki Yoshida says Final Fantasy XVI PC version will not be ready in 6 months after PS5's release (PS5 version has a 6-month timed exclusive)

Naoki Yoshida, the producer of Final Fantasy XVI, stated that he would “like to release a PC version at some point”.
“It is true that Final Fantasy 16 is a six-month limited-time exclusive on the PS5 platform, but it is a completely different story that the PC version will be released in half a year. Let me be clear: the PC version will not be released in half a year,” Yoshida added.
Will Final Fantasy XVI arrive on Xbox or PC?
The response was no, at least not right away.
Final Fantasy XVI seems to be a PlayStation exclusive for 2023. Final Fantasy XVI producer Naoki Yoshida revealed that there were no plans for a PC version six months after release, implying that a PC port may appear in 2024.
For Xbox gamers, the news is considerably worse.
Currently, there are no plans to release Final Fantasy XVI for Xbox. Given that Microsoft is in the process of purchasing Activision/Blizzard, this is made considerably more challenging by the ongoing legal conflict.
Gameplay Peeks from Final Fantasy XVI
Here are a couple of in-game screenshots of Final Fantasy XVI, courtesy of Square Enix.
While there may not be an option to play Final Fantasy XVI on PC or Xbox for now, the possibility exists that the game may release for these additional platforms in the foreseeable future. For now, the popular title remains a PlayStation 5 exclusive, which is unfortunate.
We’re rooting for Square Enix and hope they’ll release a PC or Xbox port quite soon. Happy gaming!
