The team behind Final Fantasy XIV is still working hard to bring the extremely popular MMO over to Xbox consoles.
Xbox players have asked for FFXIV for years, and game director and producer Naoki Yoshida has commented on this desire many times. This February, Yoshida seemed to indicate that an Xbox version of the MMO would eventually happen, perhaps in the distant future.
“So I feel bad for saying the same thing every time, but we are still in discussions with Microsoft, and I feel like our conversations are going in a positive tone,” Yoshida told Easy Allies. “I don’t want to say that we do not have an Xbox version, but I’m hoping that the timing will be very soon that I’ll have some kind of update to the players.”
Yoshida further commented that he’s sure there are a lot of things players want to ask him about an Xbox version of FFXIV and that there’s plenty of things he’d love to share … he just simply can’t talk about those details right now.
“I’m sure the time will come so if you could stand by, that would be great,” Yoshida said.
And there you have it – no confirmed news that an Xbox version of FFXIV is happening, but it seems more and more likely that one is on the way. Let’s hope those discussions stay positive.
