- Final Fantasy 16 could potentially be ported to Xbox Series X, according to recent rumors and improved relations between Square Enix and Xbox.
- Despite the possibility of an Xbox port, fans should not get overly excited as there has been no official announcement yet.
- Xbox fans can still look forward to Final Fantasy 14 coming to their platform, with more information on that front expected soon.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, a Final Fantasy 16 port could be in the works for Xbox Series X. Final Fantasy 16 is one of the few true PS5 exclusives available at the time of this writing, meaning it can only be played on Sony’s newest console and has no cross-gen presence or availability on any other platforms.
However, it’s been known for some time that Final Fantasy 16 will eventually make its way to other platforms. The game’s PS5 exclusivity window has already ended, and there are plans to bring Final Fantasy 16 to PC at some point down the line. While Square Enix has openly discussed the Final Fantasy 16 PC port, it has not indicated that the game would ever be coming to Xbox. Final Fantasy fans on Xbox shouldn’t hold their breath that FF16 will come to their platform of choice, but a new rumor suggests there’s a good chance.
What to Expect From Final Fantasy 16’s Rising Tide DLC
Final Fantasy 16’s Rising Tide DLC will take players to a brand-new location and ultimately pit them against the legendary sea serpent Leviathan.
Leaker Shpeshal_Nick has heard that Final Fantasy 16 is getting an Xbox port. Fans should take this information with a grain of salt, but when one considers how Square Enix and Xbox seem to be improving their relationship, it certainly wouldn’t be surprising if FF16 did get ported over at some point down the line.
Final Fantasy 16 isn’t the only big FF game rumored for Xbox. Recent rumors have also pointed to Final Fantasy 7 Remake coming to Xbox, but that still has yet to happen at the time of this writing. It’s entirely possible that neither FF7 Remake nor FF16 will ever come to Xbox, so fans should keep that in mind. Chances are better now than they were years ago, but it’s always best to wait for an official announcement before getting too excited.
The potential Final Fantasy 16 Xbox port isn’t the only thing that fans have to look forward to in the months ahead. Those on PS5 have already been treated to one Final Fantasy 16 DLC release, and soon, they will get to jump into another. The Rising Tide DLC for Final Fantasy 16 is set to launch later this year, though a specific release date has not been announced just yet.
While it remains to be seen if Xbox fans will get to play Final Fantasy 16 and its DLC, they do have one major FF game to look forward to at least. Final Fantasy 14 is coming to Xbox with more information on that front expected to drop sooner rather than later.
