Final Fantasy XVI PS5 PlayStation

A PS4 version of the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI was in development at some stage, although getting it up to snuff would have added years of dev time, producer Naoki Yoshida has revealed.

In an interview with Final Fantasy Union, Yoshida said on the matter: "What I can say is that while developing, we originally had a plan to release the game on PlayStation 4 possibly. During development, we realized that to get it to a level that we were gonna be proud of we would have needed at least one or two more years of development."

While never announced for PS4, Yoshida previously revealed that Final Fantasy XVI began development on PS4, before the decision was made to proceed with PS5 development only. Would you have wanted a PS4 version of the game, or been willing to wait? Let us know in the comments section below.
