Why Star Ocean 5 Will Not Come To Xbox One And PC

The producer for Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has now given a reason why the game will not be released on the Xbox One and PC.

When Square Enix first announced Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness, it was only revealed to be available for the PS3 and PS4 consoles. Some people are wondering why it’s not coming to Xbox One and PC.

The game’s producer, Shuichi Kobayashi, explained why during a new interview with GamesBeat.

He said in Japan, Star Ocean 5 is “for PS3 and PS4” only. He said that “Xbox and PC” were not part of their plans right now.

Kobayashi explained there are two reasons why Star Ocean 5 will not hit PC and Xbox One. One of them are for technical reasons. He said it’s hard to make the same game “for PS3 and Xbox One“.

Another reason Star Ocean 5 is a PlayStation exclusive is that they did a survey and and they know more PlayStation gamers like this type of game. This makes sense, as the JPRG genre never really sells well on Xbox platforms. Not to mention not many people in Japan on the Xbox One now.

If you are looking forward to Star Ocean 5, you better own a PS3 and/or PS4 console. It doesn’t sound like it will be released elsewhere.
