Unfortunately, there’s little evidence to suggest Final Fantasy 16 will be available on the PlayStation 4 or any last-gen consoles. Initially, Sony hinted at a PS4 release. However, the current trajectory indicates a shift away from the older platforms.
Square Enix has now firmly planted the game as a PS5 exclusive. Hence, it’s unlikely that the game will make its way to the PlayStation 4 platform. Players should look to the PS5 to experience FF16, but also keep their fingers crossed if they are hoping for the unlikely PS4 release.
While the exact details of the reasoning are unclear, it means that third-party games made for Sony are unlikely to come to Xbox in the near future, and may never come to Xbox at all.
This is a surprising development, as it has been the norm for third-party games to be released on multiple platforms. However, it is clear that Sony is willing to do whatever it takes to maintain its dominance in the console market.
Ultimately, it is up to the gamers to decide which console they want to buy. If you want to play Final Fantasy XVI, you will need to buy a PlayStation 5. However, if you are not interested in playing Final Fantasy XVI, you may want to consider buying an Xbox or another console.
