Ahsan Rasheed has made a few comments in regards to the exclusivity of the upcoming “Final Fantasy XV.” According to a report from Dual Shockers on Jan. 2, the industry insider claimed that the action role-playing game was previously exclusive to the PS4, adding that multiple trustworthy sources said the same thing in the past. You can find his comments below:
FFXV PS4 Exclusivity, even to this day, some insiders claim, was a thing; and these insiders are about as trustworthy as they come.
Ahsan Rasheed went on to suggest that the deal may have been broken because Sony Computer Entertainment did not want to pay Square Enix for the exclusive rights. You can take a look at some screenshots from “Final Fantasy XV” in the slideshow to the left of this article and his speculation below:
It could also be because Sony didn’t want to open their checkbook. Honestly, exclusivity in this day and age is stupid.
“Final Fantasy XV” started out life as a PS3 exclusive video game called “Final Fantasy Versus XIII.” The software product was re-announced first as a PS4 title at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. Square Enix would later confirm the Xbox One version as well.
The “Final Fantasy” series was first associated with Nintendo platforms before moving onto the Playstation systems. The franchise began to come out simultaneously on multiple platforms at with the release of “Final Fantasy XIII” on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
It appears that the new trend will continue with the new generation of consoles as “Final Fantasy XV,” which still does not have a release date, will be coming out on the PS4 and Xbox One.
