Naoki Yoshida Says He Still Wants FFXIV on Xbox

Hope for Final Fantasy XIV coming to the Xbox is still alive after director Naoki Yoshida stated that he is "positive" about the game's possible arrival on Microsoft's console.

In an interview with Easy Allies (thanks The Gamer), Yoshida discussed the possibility of creating Xbox versions of the MMORPG after he was asked if it still could happen or not. He said:

"I feel bad for saying the same thing every time, but we are still in discussions with Microsoft, and I feel like our conversations are going in a positive-like tone.

I don't want to say we do not have an Xbox version, but I'm hoping that the timing will be very soon that I will have some kind of update to the players. I'm sure there's a lot of things that people want to ask about on this subject, and there's a lot of things I would love to share, but I'm afraid I'm unable to divulge on those details, so when the time comes... I'm sure the time will come, so if you could kindly stand by, that'd be great."

Final Fantasy XIV Director Says He Is 'Positive' About The Game's Possible Port To Xbox

While Final Fantasy XIV's Xbox port is still not happening at the moment, the MMO is hardly suffering. Square Enix recently declared it the most profitable Final Fantasy game ever, and Yoshida said that Final Fantasy XIV surpassed 24 million players since its release in 2013.

It's likely to continue attracting new players as well. The Endwalker expansion will be available beginning November 23, 2021, bringing new classes, locations, and more with it.
