Yuji Abe has commented about the potential next-generation ports of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII.” As reported by Just Push Start on Aug. 27, the design director at Square Enix declared that his company is “not thinking about” porting the role-playing game to the PS4 and Xbox One. He also assured fans that he and his staff will be trying to deliver the “best possible experience” on the PS3 and Xbox 360. You can take a look at his comments below (courtesy of Just Push Start):
We’re not thinking about it. We set out to achieve the highest possible quality we could on the current generation of consoles, the PS3 and Xbox 360. That’s what we’ve been trying very hard to do, and we think we’re almost there. Our mission is presenting the best possible experience for gamers on those consoles. We’re not thinking about anything else, including next-gen consoles.
“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” is the direct sequel to “Final Fantasy XIII” and “Final Fantasy XIII-2.” The two previous installments of the series also came out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 current-generation consoles.
Sony Computer Entertainment is planning to launch the PS4 on Nov. 15 in North American and other regions from around the world. Microsoft is also expected to release the Xbox One at around the same time period at select countries.
“Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII” won’t be released in North American until Feb. 11, 2014. The video game is being developed by Square Enix 1st Production Department and published by Square Enix.
