Final Fantasy XIV still a possibility for Switch, discussions with Nintendo may take awhile
Square Enix has mentioned on a couple of occasions that Final Fantasy XIV is a possibility for Switch. This is something that director Naoki Yoshida reiterated once again while speaking with finder.com.au.
According to Yoshida, discussions with Nintendo are ongoing. However, when putting Final Fantasy XIV on a new platform, supporting the community is a shared responsibility between Square Enix and Nintendo. The two sides are talking about this (and likely more), but Yoshida said that “these conversations will take a long time.”
Yoshida’s full words:
“We want as many players joining Final Fantasy XIV as possible. …We need to make sure Nintendo and Microsoft understand what we do and have them know about our online and QA regulations. We believe these conversations will take a long time.”
