Final Fantasy XV Got A PC Tech Test, But Don’t Get Too Excited Just Yet

by Robert Workman


Ever since its release back in November for consoles, Final Fantasy XV has been a darling with fans of the series. But some couldn’t help but ask, “Can we have a PC version?”

Well, you have one. Sort of. PCGamesN recently reported that an experimental test of Final Fantasy XV running on the recently announced GTX 1080 Ti has been demoed at the Game Developers Conference this week, and from what we’ve heard, it looks pretty sweet.

Game director Hajime Tabata has been confirming tests with the game on the PC front, utilizing the technology provided by NVIDIA and working closely with its team to see how well it performs with the Luminous Studio Pro engine. This includes showcasing the many pieces of tech with the hardware, such as the TurfEffects tech and fluids tech.

However, Square Enix stopped just short of making an official PC announcement for the game. When asked if the game was officially on the way, Tabata simply stated, “No comment.”

The PC version has been discussed (and hinted at) many times on the past, but Square Enix still hasn’t said anything official yet. However, these tech tests indicate that we could se something very soon – perhaps with E3 right around the corner, we’ll finally get it.

For the time being, Final Fantasy XV is available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
