Lightning Returns Final Fantasy XIII Not Bound For PC
Earlier today, some websites reported that Square Enix’s upcoming RPG, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, would be making its way to the PC. They based these reports on images which purported that the game would land itself on the Windows PC due to the appearance of the PC logo at the bottom alongside Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 logos of the game.
Square Enix has since confirmed that the poster is in fact legitimate and not something a bored redditor doctored in his spare time, with the caveat that the poster is indeed erroneous. For a fact, the game will not be coming out on the PC—at least, not anytime soon.
Here’s what the Japanese publisher had to say on the matter:
LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms only. The poster ad in question erroneously indicated PC as a platform.
Disappointing as the news may be, it’s something we could’ve seen coming a mile away.
