A Final Fantasy XV Sequel Is Unlikely, Says Game Director
Final Fantasy XV launched last year with critical acclaim and the game is also coming to PC in Spring 2018, however, Square Enix is not looking to go for a Final Fantasy XV Sequel. According to game director, Hajime Tabata, a sequel to Final Fantasy XV is very unlikely.
Speaking with Polygon, Tabata revealed that Square Enix is not looking to make a Final Fantasy XV Sequel, instead, the studio will be focusing on the expansions for the game. He added that a sequel for the game doesn’t make any sense.
If you do that full sequel model of expanding on an IP or a series, it’s good in certain ways. The negative of that is there’s a very large open period where you’re not releasing anything. In that period, you get people to move away, and their attachment to the franchise dissipates a little bit.
Square Enix has currently planned expansions for Final Fantasy XV that will focus on Noctis’ companions along with other expansions that will bring new content to the game.
With the game coming to PC, Square Enix will be bringing features to the PC version for which the PC community is known for like mods. Game director has confirmed that Final Fantasy XV’s PC version will get mod support.
He added that while they can’t share anything about it but, more details about Final Fantasy XV mod support will be revealed later this year.
I think one of the biggest things [PC] players can expect is mod support. We definitely want to do it. We haven’t actually managed to get our full modding policy or discussions on that finished but at the moment we do really want to do it. We’ll have the full details around autumn time.
Final Fantasy XV is an open-world action adventure title developed by Square Enix for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will come to PC in early 2018.
