Microsoft’s gaming chief, Phil Spencer, said that the company plans to bring Final Fantasy 14 to the service at a later date. “I wanted you to know, rest assured that we will be bringing that game to Xbox,” said Spencer. “We have a great relationship with Yoshida-san and we’re working through what it means to bring [to Xbox] a cross-platform MMO that they’ve run for years.”
Very curious when this might happen, and how it will affect everything.

Phil Spencer is a well known bulls***ter - There is no way they'd give any level of control to SE over xbox live or a free ride to people who only use xbox live silver and even if this did happen the game is already six years old now and highly unlikely that a number of new people are going to sub or current players move from PS4 (or PS5 by then)/PC to the Xbox 1 or whatever console M$ have out by that stage

For reference as well just look at how badly they treated FF11 and phantasy star universe on the old 360 consoles

at this point it'll be a next gen release.

I'd wager it gets annoucned as part of scarlett's launch lineup, probably launch for 5.5-ish.

Whatever happened to their stance on cross-platform? I thought that was the main reason FFXIV was never going to be released on Xbox.

They were fine w/ cross-platform, IIRC. It's updates and stuff that made it an issue.

Yeah they're fine with putting some stuff on the Switch for example.

MS wasn't fine with cross-platform before, it was one of the reasons in fact it wasn't until this gen of consoles that xbox suddenly became ok with cross-platform.

another reason was parity between platforms. MS used to demand that games released on their system had equal (sometimes games ran better) on xbox vs other platforms.

They hit they took this gen with the xbox1 has made MS either outright backtrack or become extremely laze on the policies they used to be hardline about.

Now while Phil's word isn't something I would take at face value in that it's happening it's possible that everything coming together is allowing things like FFXIV to release on Xbox.

I imagine it wouldnt be too different than when ff11 came to the 360 like 6 or so years later.

Might see a few new servers at best, but probably not

If this happens and the Next-Box is backwards compatible, I'll be getting it instead of the PS5.
