Final Fantasy 15 will launch Sept. 30 exclusively on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — but director Hajime Tabata isn't counting out a Windows PC release. In an interview with Engadget, he said that while he's aware of fans' desire for a PC port of the upcoming role-playing game, it's not yet in development.
The primary focus during Final Fantasy 15's especially long production period was to optimize the game on consoles, Tabata said. But once the game is finally finished, "we will definitely take a good, hard look at PC and what we need to do, and consider all our options," he told the website.
"But right now we aren't decided, we're still considering a lot of things," he added. A PC version remains a possibility, but isn't yet a definite — despite retail ads that seem to say otherwise.
Above is an ad for Final Fantasy 15 that's currently visible on GameStop's homepage and touts a future PC release for the game. We've reached out to the retailer for comment about the ad's suggested PC port.
Final Fantasy 13, the previous mainline game in the long-running RPG franchise, made its way to Steam in 2014, four years after it hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Several other titles in the series are available on the platform, with a Final Fantasy 9 port most recently announced to arrive "early 2016."
Update: A GameStop representative confirmed that the PC label was added to the ad "in error."
