Final Fantasy XV fans are going to be disappointed that Square Enix has confirmed that the game is still in development, they did however announce that Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3 are being developed on DirectX 11. While fans may be disappointed in the news, at least we know that they are polishing the game to look visually stunning with DirectX is the graphics technology powering today’s most impressive games. The latest version, DirectX 11, enables the addition of advanced effects and features in NVIDIA-enhanced titles, ranging from tessellation and HBAO+, to Percentage Closer Soft Shadows and NVIDA HairWorks. When asked if a PC version was possibly on the way for the two games, Square Enix had nothing to say about it.
Final Fantasy XV And Kingdom Hearts 3 Still in development on DirectX 11
Kdramastars recently announced that Senior Research Analyst for Square Enix, David Gibson, said that since Square Enix are expecting lower game sales compared to last year, this could perhaps imply that Final Fantasy XV won’t be released for this fiscal year ending March 2015. One big rumor going around is that the delay is due to a PC version being developed for hardcore PC gamers. Square Enix has refused to comment on the rumor but it could explain why the game is 8 years into development. One thing is for sure though, Final Fantasy XV will not be released in 2014 and Kingdom Hearts 3 most likely won’t either. What do you think is causing the further delay? And what do you think about the games being developed on DirectX 11?
@ForgetAmnesia Square Enix has started the same trend. FFXV and KHIII are all being developed “on DirectX 11,” but no PC versions so far.
