Final Fantasy XIV could come to the Xbox One, if Microsoft cooperates

Same old story

Tell me if you haven't heard this before -- a developer wants to bring a highly successful multiplayer game to an Xbox platform, but Microsoft refuses to budge on some requirement, usually Xbox Live Gold.

That's what's been happening with Final Fantasy XIV, but director Naoki Yoshida (Yoshi-P) says there is still hope yet. What's the holdup? Well, despite the fact that Yoshida is a "big Xbox player," the issue is cross-platform compatability. Simply put, the way FFXIV works is PS3, PC, and PS4 players can all play together. Unless Microsoft allows this, it will never come to the Xbox One.

Yoshida is on the case though, telling Pocket Lint in an interview at E3 this week -- "So we're currently in talks with Microsoft, trying to convince them that this is what needs to happen." So there you have it -- if Microsoft can work it out, we may see FFXIV on Xbox One. There is precedent for cross-play with PC players (2007's Shadowrun), but the PlayStation platforms will be a bigger problem.

Final Fantasy XIV could be coming to Xbox One after all, Yoshida confirms Microsoft talks [Pocket Lint]
