The game's director, Hajime Tabata, told Rock Paper Shotgun this past week that when the game launches on PC next year, that players should "expect mod support" to come to the game.
This would be the first Final Fantasy game to support modding officially, as previously the game's developer, Square Enix, have never been fully warm to the idea of user generated content for the franchise.
There's no definite guarantee that it will happen, as Hajime went on to say that there were still some kinks to iron out, including things like implementation, timing, and worryingly, potential "pricing" and "guidelines".
Hajime TabataI think a lot of people do want the mods as free as possible. With as few limitations from our side as possible, so we are going to look into making that the kind of system we have for the mods, so we’ll have to figure out all the technical terms around that.
He has previously expressed a desire to keep the game's lifespan going longer than is usual for such a game with post-launch content such as DLC and multiplayer, so this would align with such goals.
