Final Fantasy XV is probably coming to Windows PC, according to director Hajime Tabata. However, while this is amazing for all PC gamers around the globe, there is no absence of fear: Many console-to-PC ports are underwhelming and badly optimized.

Hajime Tabata also stated that, if the decisive moves are made, the PC version should have various extra features. One that he specifically highlighted is mods support. Most of the developers are silently agreeing to in-game modding. Japanese directors are, on the contrary, insisting on them.

His idea is to let the community and players themselves improve on the gameplay by adding their own patches and mods. Large parts of the world are unused and this way, they can be reworked and upgraded. Additionally, he spoke about self-made quests that would vastly improve the story experience. The story that was, as many faithful players said, below their expectations.

“I want to show PC users Final Fantasy XV running on high-end machines, and we personally would like to see it, too. Also, I would like to try developing on PC to pursue a unique way of playing with PC-exclusive features like making your own quests and enjoying the world using things like mods.” said Tabata in an interview with Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.

Moreover, Tabata said that there is a possibility of reworking unused parts of the map that were unreachable for the players. However, that could take a while, approximately a year or even more.

Square Enix director also spoke about some upcoming patches for FFXV. His primary objectives are related to fast travel loading time and upgrade to cars and their use.

We can certainly expect some innovations from Square Enix and Final Fantasy XV’s leading director. And no, Tabata haven’t mentioned any dates or deadlines, so we can only wait and hope for the best.
