This game introduces a semi-open world formula to this series, along with a bunch of new gameplay mechanics and a darker storyline. This game is basically a revenge tale with much darker themes than anything seen before in this series.

And now, they have finally gotten what they wanted. IGN has reported the PC version of Final Fantasy XVI is in fact in production now. The only problem is that this game does not have a launch date as of yet. This means this port might just be in the very early stages of its production.

Fans would be enjoying this game on PC by 2024 if Square Enix’s previous track record is anything to go by. They usually release PC versions of their RPGs within a year of their original launch.
