Final Fantasy 14 series producer Yoshinori Kitase has expressed interest in bringing the Final Fantasy franchise to the PC a lot more in the future.

Whilst speaking to EuroGamer he said that early on in development of the 13th game - they had it working on the PC.

Let’s not forget, when we developed the Final Fantasy 13 series, all three titles, at the early stages of development we were working on PC.

Then we had to port it to the consoles. As far as the technology is concerned, it would have been possible for us to make a PC version, but we decided against it for two reasons: we looked at the market situation and we didn’t think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around.

But we see potential in it and there are lots of regions and countries where PC is very strong. So in terms of our hope of being able to deliver our games to every single country in the world and to as many gamers as possible, yes, we would definitely be interested in pursuing that route in the future.

Whether this means previous games in the franchise or future games, who knows? At the minute you are able to collect both Final Fantasy 7 and Final Fantasy 8 off Steam - but would there be others that you'd like to see on Steam?

Thanks, VG24/7
