|Final Fantasy XVI Will Be PlayStation 5-Exclusive for 6 Months|
Nearing final stage of development, upcoming action role-playing game Final Fantasy XVI from developer/publisher Square Enix was originally announced during PlayStation 5 Reveal Event in mid-2020 and is expected to arrive by next year.
Square Enix promised to reveal a release date soon and is currently working on a free demo for fans to experience it early. Meanwhile, a recent Sony advert officially reveals that Final Fantasy 16 will be timed exclusive to PS5 for six months.
A newly revealed marketing video briefly highlighting upcoming PlayStation 5 games confirmed a six months exclusivity of Final Fantasy XVI. Following a summer 2023 release, FFXVI may head to other platforms when timed exclusivity ends.
Although nothing is officially clarified, a PC version of Final Fantasy 16 is possibly releasing later in 2024. Square Enix has only announced FF16 for PlayStation 5 consoles and latest video didn't specify timed exclusivity for condole or even PC.

Other franchise titles like Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade eventually came to PC platform after a while. Its original 12-month PlayStation-exclusivity period was extended for another six months with launch of PS5 version in June 2021.
Final Fantasy XVI reveal trailer accidentally mentions a PC version back in 2020 but Square Enix has removed it from later versions. PC release of FFXVI seems a lot more likely than a potential Xbox debut of most recent mainline series entry.
