Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn was released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC some time ago, although the version for Xbox One still did not arrive. But all is not lost, as the game’s director, Naoki Yoshida said that Square Enix and Microsoft are in talks to bring the MMO to Xbox One.
One of the main reasons why Final Fantasy XIV is not on the Microsoft platform is because the Xbox One did not support cross-play. However, the company made the necessary adjustments to your console to connect to PC and even PlayStation 4. For this reason, Yoshida said that Microsoft is looking for an opportunity with the new feature of cross-platform, but so far nothing has happened.
“When our team reviewed the regulations that are associated with that, we realized that Microsoft may not have the experience or understanding of running an MMORPG as an online game genre just yet,” Yoshida said. “The Final Fantasy 14 team has fed back to Microsoft that there are certain elements of its regulations that we would have to consider waived. We’re waiting on Microsoft’s response for that, but we are having discussions.”
Moreover, Yoshida said that the PlayStation 3 version will continue to receive support through 3 patches to be launched soon. He also called on the fans to be vigilant about possible changes.
