There has been a rumor floating around a PC version of Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 is in development. It appears Square Enix is staying quiet and denying its existence.
Freelance writer, Daniel Sims, has managed to contact Square Enix apparently. He mentioned on twitter that Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are being developed “on DirectX 11”. He did confirm Square Enix has mentioned “no PC versions so far”. Square Enix has only announced the games will be out for the PS4 and Xbox One only for now.
Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 were first revealed at E3 2013. Sadly, they were both absent from E3 2014. Square Enix has said in the past that development on Final Fantasy XV is going well. Much better than when the game was known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII. As for Kingdom Hearts 3, that game is still pretty much early in development. It’s likely that game won’t be out anytime soon.
We do know both games will not be out before March 2015 as Square Enix has said they are expecting lower game sales this year. A mid -or-late 2015 release might be a good bet for Final Fantasy XV’s release. Hopefully Kingdom Hearts 3 will be released shortly after, although it’s unlikely Square Enix will cram their release dates at the same time.
Final Fantasy XIV is the only recent Final Fantasy game released for the PC. As for Kingdom Hearts, that series has never been available for the PC.
