This means that they’d need to load up the PS4 just to play the game, which can be a bit troublesome just for a single game, but the good news is that the game could be going cross-gen. During an interview with Game Informer, Square Enix’s President and CEO Yosuke Matsuda hinted that the game could be launched for current-gen and next-gen consoles.
According to Matsuda, “It’s the hottest topic at the moment and we thought you might ask us that. I believe that our teams have made it so that the game will support both the next generation and the current generation of consoles. I believe it is being developed so that it is going to be playable on both, so I’m not really concerned about that and I believe that the fans are also going to be able to enjoy it on both, including the next-generation of consoles.”
It should be noted that Matsuda’s comments does not necessarily mean that it will be launched for next-gen consoles, but rather the possibility is there. We suppose only time will tell if it will, but here’s hoping!
