It is important to take into account the context that Final Fantasy XVI is exclusively available on Sony Group Corp.‘s SONY PlayStation 5 when evaluating its strong sales numbers.

And, while Final Fantasy XV sold 5 million units on its first day, making it the fastest-selling game in the history of the franchise, that’s because it launched on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms in November 2016.

As per IGN, although it is probable Square Enix is in the process of developing a PC version of Final Fantasy XVI, producer Naoki Yoshida indicated that fans should not expect its release in the near future.
