After letting the cat out of the bag, Square Enix is now claiming there is no PC version of Final Fantasy XVI.

Sony may have twisted Square Enix 's arm over the timed exclusivity for Final Fantasy XVI, which is not supposed to be available on any platform other than PlayStation 5 for a limited time.

The company previously let slip that PC version of the game would arrive six months after the PS5 release drops, which may have rubbed Sony the wrong way as they are the ones paying for exclusivity.

At this point, it's hard to gauge what exactly happened but Naoki Yoshida, the producer of the game, now claims that no one is talking about a PC version.

"I don’t know, people are talking about a PC version, but no one has said anything about a PC version. Why are they making it sound as if the PC version will be out in six months? Just buy a PS5"

Game Infinitus caught and translated the interview excerpt with the quote above and it's safe to say that gamers will not appreciate being told what platform to buy, especially after the existence of the PC version was previously revealed in an official trailer.

Additionally, a more recent trailer showed that the PC release is planned six months after the PS5 one so claiming no one said anything about it is just weird, on top of being disingenuous.
