However, the company might opt for the port if the original development team behind “Final Fantasy XII” believes that it is a “good idea.” You can find some screens from the aforesaid “Final Fantasy XV” video game with the gallery located to the left side of the article and Yoshinori Kitase’s statement below (courtesy of Eurogamer and Softpedia):

I haven't heard there is a plan. It depends on the team who created 12. If they think it's a good idea they might opt for it.

The producer went on to state that re-releasing PS2 games is not as simple as PS1 titles. As a result, Square Enix had to release remastered ports such as “Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster” and “Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix.” You can find his comments below:

So it's not quite so straightforward if you want to play PS2 titles. That's why we wanted to remaster some of our PS2 titles. We wanted to make them more accessible and available to as many gamers as possible.

“Final Fantasy XII,” came out for the PS2 in 2006, has remained exclusive to Sony’s last generation console. While other games in the series appeared on multiple platforms, the 12th main installment is limited to just one system.

After the release of “Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster,” Square Enix is expected to focus on the developments of the two upcoming next-generation games, “Final Fantasy XV” and “Kingdom Hearts 3.”
