Is ‘Final Fantasy XVI’ Making It to the Xbox? So Far, What We Know

Final Fantasy XVI takes place in the fantasy world of Valisthea, a land that survives with the magic of the Mothercrystals. Six different factions rule over Valisthea, but civil war threatens to tear them apart. Clive Rosfield, a royal child of the nation of Rosaria, embarks on a quest for vengeance after the beast Ifrit devastates his life. There’s little we know about gameplay, but what do we know about which consoles the game will be on? As far as we know, it will be a timed exclusive.

Final Fantasy XVI, which was previously announced for 2020 and will be released on next-generation consoles, will usher in the next chapter of the classic franchise. While there hasn’t been much news about the game since its initial reveal, we do know that it is in its final stages of development as of this writing. We can’t wait to play it, but will Final Fantasy XVI be available on Xbox? If anything, it may not be available on those consoles right away.

Is ‘Final Fantasy XVI’ coming to Xbox? If it is, it won’t be for a while. Though previous mainline Final Fantasy titles have been closely associated with the PlayStation brand, many of the franchise’s later numbered games have gone cross-platform. The first to do so was Final Fantasy XIII, which was released on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the U.S. in 2010. Final Fantasy XIV is an ongoing MMORPG that was initially released on PC and on PlayStation 3 in 2013. 2016’s Final Fantasy XV was originally released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016.

That, combined with the franchise’s many spinoffs and remasters released on various consoles, suggests that XVI is poised to appear on multiple systems. But if it is, it won’t be at launch. As of writing, Final Fantasy XVI will only be released on the PlayStation 5. This would make it one of very few true console exclusives of the current gaming generation. The game will reportedly not be backwards compatible with the PlayStation 4.

The game was officially unveiled during a Sony livestream event in 2020. The trailer came during the conference in which the final design of the PlayStation 5 was revealed to the world. As of now, PlayStation 5 will be the only place to play Final Fantasy XVI at launch. An Xbox version seems to be off the table, but that doesn’t mean it won’t ever happen.
