But PlayStation 3 is the current console focus.

Final Fantasy XIV is due out on PlayStation 3 and PC this summer, but according to producer Naoki Yoshida, a next-gen version is also a possibility.

“We have been promising our players for over three years that we’re going to bring this game out on PlayStation 3,” Yoshida told IGN (note: this interview was conducted before PlayStation 4’s official announcement). “We’re definitely going to keep that promise and that’s what we’re focusing on at the moment. That being said we do have a Windows version which is very high end, so as long as the console side is going to have a high spec it’s not a problem for us to match those console’s requirements.”

A PC beta for Final Fantasy XIV will kick off on February 25.

    I thought so. I would definitely hold off from buying the PS3 version to get the PS4 version for sure. Especially after seeing how it’s running(so far) on the PS3. Being a resolution whore doesn’t help lol.

    At least they’re keeping their promise. Good for you, SE.

  • GetOffMy_Lawn

    I’m glad to hear they’re dedicated to keeping their promise to fans. I hope SE feels the same about their promise for VersusXIII releasing on PS3…
    But I would still love FFIV on PS4.

    • AnimusVox

      I think FFIV is a good game but it has so many re-releases and the such I think it needs a break. I noticed V doesn’t get much love though I’d like to see something about VI personally.

      • GetOffMy_Lawn

        You bring up a good point. SE does tend to fall back on FFIV. I love all the sprite-based FF games, and I’d love to see SE update them for modern consoles.
        That being said, I would love to see FF return to the traditional sprites, but I know that won’t happen. :(

  • PrinceHeir

    that would be ace :D

  • Porting from the PC to PS4 should be quick and easy.

  • Final Fantasy Versus XIII

    • HassanJamal

      I was awaiting SE guys to mention that at PSM of 20th Feb but no, they showed an old tech demo and announce to wait for E3. Freaking A SE!

  • zakou

    Skyrim for ps4 and in sold

  • Prodigy-X

    They said be excited for E3 well you know what they better announce Versus XIII is coming to the PS4 & release in 2014 world wide, they better announce Type-0 is coming to PS Vita in HD & that better release world wide, & they better announce Final Fantasy XV there or a TGS 2013. I know I sound too entitle but come on we’ve been waiting to long for those games & FF XIII-1, XIII-2, & XIII-3 thrown in our faces for too long.

  • legendarydynasty1992

    I swear. IF this is the FF game that they are teasing for PS4 at the event for E3. I will rage like a mad man. I dont want they MMO. I want an actual JRPG with great gameplay, and likable characters,etc. Gimme Versus for PS3 or PS4. I will get the system if its the later.

  • Pyrofrost

    Why the hell are people in this thread so upset about this. Of course this isn’t the title they were teasing last night. This also has nothing to do with the FF-XIII series, Type-0, FFvXIII, FFXV, or what SE is and isn’t localizing. Seriously calm your tits guys.

    On topic: This is great news and if it comes to PS4, I will buy it there too.

  • Danny Kriegbaum Laursen

    I think PS4 would be better for FFXIV, since the extra RAM and never hardware would benefit the Game, but I really hope Squaire Enix announcement on E3 will be 1. Versus XIII (would put X HD first, but better be out before) 2. X HD 3. FFXV 4. PS Vita version of Type-0

    • MrRobbyM

      X HD is going to be released first no matter what. There’s just no way Versus is coming before that.

      Type-0 though…I’d love that.

    • AnimusVox

      Ugh I’m so hoping Type 0 makes it to Vita.

  • rockman29

    Good idea.

  • Bloodios

    It would be mental if it doesn’t come to the PlayStation 4. That said, it will all depend on how the game is going to fare against the critics and how many units it’ll be able to sell. Here’s hoping…

  • Solomon_Kano

    Ohhh this would be amazing! I’m happy that Yoshida is so committed to bringing it to PS3 and I’ll play it there, but I’ll be even more excited if they do a PS4 version.

    • AnimusVox

      Especially if it’s a launch title. If PS4 is more like a PC than I MIGHT wait for PS4 version. ‘Might’, I use that term losely. I really want to play XIV asap :p

  • RedWolfe

    I was just thinking about this due to the fact that the PS4 boasts much more impressive specs that could make a game like this come even closer to it’s PC counterpart.

    At first, I thought it wouldn’t be very likely due to the game development being already being near complete on PC & PS3 but for some odd reason I failed to catch this…

    “That being said we do have a Windows version which is very high end, so as long as the console side is going to have a high spec it’s not a problem for us to match those console’s requirements.”

    Since the PS4 more or less shares the PC’s architecture, it shouldn’t be too hard for them to get a PS4 version up and running primarily based on the PC version, yes?

    I would totally double dip, if this happened.

  • I’d be down.

  • superbuster

    I’m not waiting for the ps4 version of the game. there is too big a span of time between ps3 and ps4 versions, i would rather be playing the game then have better resolution or additional features.
