"There's confusion over the exclusivity of Final Fantasy 16, which was described upon its reveal last night as a PlayStation 5 "console exclusive".
No mention was made of timed console exclusivity, or whether PC might launch at a different time.
But, shortly after the presentation, trusted industry analyst Piers Harding-Rolls stated on Twitter he had been told by Sony the game was "six months full exclusive and 12 months console exclusive", suggesting it would arrive on PC half a year after PS5, and be free to launch elsewhere after a full year.
I asked Square Enix for clarification on Final Fantasy 16's release and exclusivity this morning, but the publisher was unable to provide it.
"We have no further information on if Final Fantasy 16 will be released on platforms other than the PS5," a Square Enix spokesperson told me, the tape on their mouth beginning to inhibit oxygen flow."
