There will be a PC version of the upcoming role-playing game “Final Fantasy XV” if a recent leak of a gameplay demo is to be believed.
Apparently, game developer Square Enix is currently working on the PC edition of its highly-anticipated video game franchise that is why it was not able to specify exactly when will be the official release date of “Final Fantasy XV.”
Square Enix has previously announced that it will be releasing “Final Fantasy XV” on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 and did not mention anything at all about a PC version, prompting PC gamers to make a signature campaign, reports Venture Capital Post.
Accordingly, the campaign has already gotten 13,000 signatures from gamers as of the end June 2015.
There are now reports going around that the PC version of “Final Fantasy XV” has been in development for some time. But in light of the release of Windows 10 towards the end of this month, the PC edition of “Final Fantasy XV” is currently being modified so that it will become compatible with Windows 10 when it comes out.
Consequently, the release of the PC version will come a few weeks after the roll out of the video game on the next generation gaming consoles.
But Square Enix has yet to come out with an official statement or pronouncement to either confirm or deny these reports, worried that doing so would also forced it to reveal the release dates of the game on the gaming consoles and the PC too.
Gameplay demo for PC
There were reports that a leak demo of the PC version of “Final Fantasy XV” was recently leaked carrying the title “Witch – Chapter 0” and it actually shows what the new Windows 10 is capable of doing to the game running on Microsoft’s very own DirectX 12 engine.
While game developer Square Enix has yet to specify an exact release date for the highly-anticipated video game, many are expected that “Final Fantasy XV” would finally hit the video game shelves before the end of this year.
In fact, the Gaming Bolt reported that the game developer may likely announce the official release date of “Final Fantasy XV” at the upcoming Gamescom 2015 to be held in Cologne, Germany from August 5 to 9. It is also likely that Square Enix will do the same for its other highly-anticipated crossover action role-playing game “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
Second most wanted video game
Famitsu, a Japanese gaming website, has updated its charts as of June 21 showing the top 30 games most wanted by users and the role-playing game “Final Fantasy XV” from Square Enix has made it to No. 2 spot behind the front-running “Fire Emblem If” from Nintendo.
The Famitsu list only indicates that the Japanese fans and gamers have a slightly different set of interests in video games compared to their American counterparts because as can be seen from the list, “Batman: Arkham Knight” on the PlayStation 4 and “Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain” on the PlayStation 3 are near the bottom. But “Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain” on the PlayStation 4 is at No. 7 spot.
“Final Fantasy XV” already has a demo available for a while through its “Episode Duscae 2.0” as part of the “Final Fantasy Type-O HD” video game and as shown by Square Enix at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 held last month, the game has a brand new boss for gamers to try to take down.
Early last month, Square Enix released a new tech demo for Luminous Studio 1.5, the source engine where the developer is building the “Final Fantasy XV” on.
