Rumor: Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake Get PC Releases in 2018

final fantasy vii remake 04-06-16-1

A new rumor has started making the rounds. This time, we’ve learned that both Final Fantasy XV and the Final Fantasy VII remake are possibly getting PC releases.

The new rumor (via VGleaks) claims their source is pointing to an early to mid-2018 release for both games. Further information wasn’t disclosed by their source.

According to the somewhat lengthy rumor, Square Enix will be going all out with various re-releases, packages, and remasters for the series’ 30th anniversary, which is going down next year.

If you want your fill of tinfoiling, head on over to the big list of rumors here. For what it’s worth, VGleaks are the guys who found the Norse-themed God of War reboot prior to its original reveal.

What do you guys think? Will Final Fantasy XV and the Final Fantasy VII get a PC release? Sound off in the comments below!

  • Wasn’t the FF XV PC release already a thing?

  • kenneth


  • Heavily Augmented

    Sort of? Tabata has gone on record say it’ll take a year to make a “proper PC port” and with the FF games getting released on Steam means it’s likely to happen sometime, but they’re probably waiting until 2018 to milk the console versions as much as they can.

  • Will3316

    We don’t even know when the first part of the FFVII remake is getting released.

  • Heavily Augmented

    Honestly, I only care if KH3/2.8 (along with the other games in the series) are getting a PC port down the line. As incoherent as their stories are, the gameplay is something I could spend hours upon hours onto without being a watered down version that XV is and VII remake will probably be.

  • Cubanoman

    Final fantasy XV was obvious but i dont know about FF 7

  • Jack


  • FF7 was the most obvious one coming to PC as it is being made with Unreal Engine 4 and it was stated to be first on PS4 meaning it would be on more platforms.

  • We already knew that both games are coming to PC and tha FFXV would be the definitive or complete verison.

  • Master Bating

    FF7 Remake will be on the Xbone as well

  • dathip

    B.bu..bu..but final fantasy 7 2017 is the 20th anniversary!!!!!

  • NeoTruth

    ありがと!わたし は あい です!

  • Narmy

    Will anyone even care about FF15 in two years?

  • Guin

    I can’t say I’m excited about the remake being on PC now knowing how they’ve done their damnest to turn people off after the initial announcement.

  • Jack


  • garf02

    more like, we were paid to keep it out of PC for a year

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    That’s sad, FF has all the money and support and still can’t be damned to make new games in celebration of its anniversary like DQ did.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    I don’t think they’re trying anymore; shit’s gotta be second nature by now.

  • Zombie_Barioth

    Looking back at the shape the FFXIII trilogy was in at launch, I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

    Besides, if it were a timed exclusivity thing, why would it be on both consoles?

    That’s a weird way to do it, and SE always been slow to port FF games to PC, so its nothing surprising.

  • Tristan (Chili1)

    >Chrono Trigger and Tactics on PC before the end of 2017

  • Audie Bakerson

    Honestly have no idea why SE has waited this long to port the mobile port of Tactics to PC. Of all the mobile ports to port, that one actually made sense (it’s supposed to be the definitive version, PSP’s additions without the regressions and had no ugly art makeover).

  • Audie Bakerson
  • Kaijuu

    Nice. It seems a bit long to wait but in comparison to XIII (and hopefully along with the lessons they’ve learned from those releases) it’s not too bad. FF15 seems like the kind of FF that really needs to be on PC to experienced to its fullest but I’m enjoying it enough on console as is.

  • Gerald Ho

    If anyone still doubts FFXV on PC, take a look at this
    Basically, someone leaked FFXV’s ending and plot outline six months before its release. It’s pretty obvious he works at square enix. But if you take a look at this line “It was finished and you could play it start to finish on the high end PCs they made it on, but the PS4 port is a mess,”, it really seems there will be a PC version. Nonetheless, already have the PS4 version and won’t be getting PC version.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    by whom?

  • OSad

    Cloud’s looking like he has a bit of a case of the flabby arms. The only thing left is some fat lines to go along the bottom there.

  • Anon630

    They likely will as many games in the current year are getting PC ports, but will it even be worth it? I don’t know- I played the original start to finish with all of the side content, and I have gained nothing but worry about what current year Square Enix will do with this remake. I feel they’ll make idiotic design decision after idiotic design decision. At worst, social justice might even try pushing its perverted propaganda into it.

  • Brownninja97 .

    2018 is a little far away but if thats what it takes for them to nail the port then im all for it.

  • So does that means FF1 and FF2 are coming to steam?

  • catazxy

    Square has many FFs on pc, one or two newer ones will boost the sales.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    This rumour seems to be implying that the first part of VII’s remake will release in 2017, since it’s advertised as a PS4 timed exclusive.

  • Bio Sock

    “Square Enix will be going all out with various re-releases, packages,
    and remasters for the series’ 30th anniversary, which is going down next

    God I’m such a sucker but that actually makes me happy. I apologize.

  • Tommy Meliet

    kingdom hearts 3 is unreal 4. it will be on pc.

  • Kiryu

    Waifu mods for the sausage fest XV incoming.

  • fire lion

    People who don’t have a PS4?

  • porkbun

    I’m only interested in FF12 HD and FFT on Steam. Couldn’t care less about 15 and remake.

  • fire lion

    I want Dragon quest to come to PC.

  • What regressions?

  • Sevuz

    Welcome the club :P

  • Sevuz

    Just give us a Chrono Trigger remake dammit!

  • magicalfollower

    Ahh the wonders of modding….

  • Grayares Fakcot

    there wont be any. like there arent any for FF10/13

  • Lucky

    There was slowdown in the PSP port that could’ve (and has) been patched.

  • DrearierSpider

    Have you seen what they did to FFV and VI? I’d love a proper Chrono Trigger release on PC, but I shudder to think how badly they’d fuck the wonderful pixel art.

  • totenglocke

    Nah, they’d fuck it up like the Final Fantasy VII remake where all you do is run around and spam X.

  • Kiryu

    I’m quite sure there will be and those mods were not needed in those games compared to XV.

  • lucben999

    Wait, are you trying to tell me there are people on neogaf who still aren’t banned?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    im quite sure there won’t. like how there aren’t any so far.

  • Master Bating

    But there are mods for both of those games

  • Grayares Fakcot

    no. there aren’t. stop talking out of your ass

  • AR7777

    it’ll probably be released a few years later on pc

    since it’s episodic it’s very likely the pc version will be released after all episodes are out on ps4

  • Zanard Bell
  • Smug

    >he doesnt know about the mod made by a flustered faggot who couldnt handle Rikku’s skin in FFX-2

  • Audie Bakerson

    Badly applied aspect ratio and frame rate issues in places.

  • Grayares Fakcot

    read the fucking thread
    >Waifu mods for the sausage fest XV incoming.

    btw, texture mods aren’t really mods, and sweetfx/reshade are proprocessors not mod

  • Sevuz

    I guess you are right. If FF15 is anything to go by we are in for more shitty FF games :(

  • Izzy Lichi

    PC suuuuuucks thats why ^ ^

  • Grayares Fakcot

    >texture “mods”
    you know what’s the best texture mods? the one that changes button prompt from 360 buttons to playstation buttons

  • Smug

    cant deny its a good thing

  • edge

    There’s apparently also a mod to give Lulu a giant bra on an hd model because someone was upset by cleavage O.o

  • Master Bating
  • Master Bating

    ” texture mods aren’t really mods”
    Wow, this faggot can’t even admit when hes wrong

  • Tristan (Chili1)

    With FFV and VI they ported the iOS versions, which had awful art. The iOS version of Chrono Trigger doesn’t suffer this.

  • MeatyAlbatross

    I mean, I’d rather a bunch of remakes and a PC release of their new game over a bad, rushed, 2 year game

  • Sebastian Mikulec

    I don’t care about the FFVII remake, but I would absolutely love Japanese Witcher 3 Boyband Adventure on PC.

  • Zanard Bell

    You do realize that if they can fuck with the textures, that it also sets the precedent for model-swaps and therefore, nude and complete character overhauls, right?

    I’ll also be sure to pass along the message to the modders that their texture rehashes aren’t really ‘mods’, lol.

  • Cloud Strife

    “Texture mods aren’t really mods”

    GTFO. It’s in the name, smartass.

  • Cloud Strife

    XV is getting 9’s and 8’s on reviews unanimously in part for it’s combat.

    It started out as Kingdom Hearts-y, but now it’s not even comparable: KH is an X-button masher, XV is a tactical control of strategy and environment. Doesn’t make KH any less great – that’s what it’s supposed to be. But FFXV ain’t for idiots.

  • Cloud Strife

    But Tabata said if they were to make the actual PC version, it would be in DirectX 12 library. That means they have to take a whole year to port the game to a different API anyway.

  • Cloud Strife

    Mako poisoning added more pounds than he expected.

  • Cloud Strife

    People who have been wanting the PC Version for 6 years?

  • Grayares Fakcot

    you know what else is a mod? editing ini files

  • Grayares Fakcot

    yea like how there are model swaps for ff10/13….
    oh wait there aren’t any.

  • Master Bating

    Someone doesn’t know that the word mod is a diminutive apparently.

  • Zanard Bell


  • DrearierSpider

    Good point, didn’t think of that. One has to wonder why they fucked with the art style for the mobile release in the first place though.

  • Grayares Fakcot
  • Zanard Bell

    Quite an achievement for a game that didn’t come with a devkit.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Dude, they could prepare for it beforehand and also make spinoffs in other easy to make yet well known genres like Enix did for DQs. Besides, Square seems to have an interest in making bad remakes and rushed 10yr games.
