Though a few have come out later as ports, the single-player games of the Final Fantasy series have usually been notably absent on PC. That may be changing, as series producer Yoshinori Kitase says that Square Enix sees potential in the PC market and is interested in pursuing it.
He noted that the ports of Final Fantasy 7 and 8 have done very well, and of course MMOs like Final Fantasy 11 and 14 have been on PC. But Kitase concedes that they “haven’t got a lot of experience” in producing PC games. “So when we have more know-how and experience in this market we would be very interested.”
Octodad: Dadliest Catch has had its PS4 release date pushed further back.
Originally due for release in March on the console, the game will now be coming out in April, according to the game’s developer Young Horses.
The studio was also asked if it was going to bring Dadliest Catch to Xbox One as well. “Our word on the Xbox One version is ‘we’re thinking about it’,” it replied, adding: “We don’t currently have plans for Wii U.”
As fun as Wolfenstein: The New Order looks, the id Software series we’re most keen to hear more of is Doom. The vagueness continues. Publisher Bethesda today announced that The New Order will launch on May 20, and pre-ordering will get you access to a beta for “Doom.” Which Doom? Doom 4? And what’s the beta? Oh, don’t worry your pretty little head with all that.
The Wolfenstein site refers merely to “Doom,” as if we’ll understand that. Yes, we’re well aware of what Doom is, but what is this? Bethesda is slightly more verbose on Twitter, at least, saying it’s beta access to “the next Doom game.” Whatever that may be.
