Final Fantasy XIV producer Hiromichi Tanaka has said that Square Enix currently has “no plans” for an Xbox 360 version of his game, although he did admit that the company is “still in talks with Microsoft”.

Speaking in an E3 interview with RPG Site, Tanaka said the company is only working on the “PS3 and Windows version of the game” at the moment.

Elsewhere in the interview Tanaka said that while the version shown on the E3 show floor was running with a full resolution of 1080p, the final PS3 version won’t support this.

“The PS3 version will be running in 720p in order to ensure performance remains high quality, but the PC version can go up to 1080p if your machine is powerful enough. We also support multiple displays, so players can use two or three displays to show the game.”

Finally, the producer said the game is still on track to be released before the end of the year.

“Yes, that is the plan,” he said. “In fact, we were planning to bring the director, Komoto-san to this interview as well, but he had to remain in Japan to work on the game, so it is really at a critical finishing stage at the moment.”

Final Fantasy XIV Online was unveiled by Square at Sony’s E3 press conference last year.
