Next Final Fantasy Could Also Be Open-World, Game Director Teases
Square Enix has no plans for a direct sequel to Final Fantasy XV but, the next entry in the franchise could also be an open-world title. One of the most notable features of Final Fantasy XV was its open-world and it seems that Square Enix intends to keep it for the next Final Fantasy.
Speaking with Gamespot, Final Fantasy XV game director Hajime Tabata talked about his next project and what he would like to achieve with it. While he wasn’t sure if the next Final Fantasy will be an open-world title but, hinted that the next entry could give players the same feeling.
It’s hard to say at this point if the entire game is gonna be based on an open world. But I would say that the overall experience that users get from playing in a massive area, that overall game experience is something that we’re gonna make sure is in the next project as well.
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.
Furthermore, Tabata has expressed that he would like to develop a Final Fantasy XV expansion focusing on Lunafreya. He added that he has a desire to showcase Lunafreya as a strong character. He noted that currently, the focus is to get ‘Episode Ignis’ out.
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.
