Out of nowhere, the Director and Producer of Final Fantasy XIV, Naoki Yoshida, confirmed that the game is also being developed for upcoming PlayStation 5.
The news was revealed on stage at a small fanfest in London, it’s not the we didn’t expect it, it’s just that the news was dropped unexpectedly.
Due to the massive success that Final Fantasy XIV has had over recent years it was quite clear it will be coming to the PS5. The MMO is now seeing its largest number of active players ever.
Yoshinda came out on stage unannounced and just told the crowd that they are developing for the PS5 even though it will be backwards compatible. Which is a great choice, because now they can take advantage of the brand new console.
