While both games were shown at last night’s Sony E3 Press Conference, Sony never did use the word “exclusive” when talking about them, and now we know why. In a recent conference, Square Enix had announced that both Final Fantasy XV & Kingdom Hearts 3 will not only be arriving on the PlayStation 4, but also on the Xbox One.
So, with more non-exclusive Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts titles making their debuts on a Microsoft console, it seems the age of third-party exclusives is really coming to an end. Final Fantasy XV is using Direct 11, noted by Shinji Hashimoto, and made the game easy to port to the Xbox One. Both consoles having their architecture being x86, it’s not too surprising. For anyone wondering; no, the Wii U was not mentioned at the event for either game.
No release date was announced for Final Fantasy XV or Kingdom Hearts 3 sadly. Hopefully, we will be getting any new footage soon.
