The PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake, a new installment of the legendary jRPG, seems more and more likely. Some people got access to the demo ahead of time, which enabled some inquisitive fans to dig in the files. They found a lot of mentions there suggesting that there are plans to port the game to PC.
As discovered by user roXyPS3, the files contain information about a number of alternative resolutions and not all of them can be explained by the needs of PlayStation 4 Pro and even a possible PlayStation 5 version. Most importantly, however, mentions of Nvidia chipsets were found. Both the PS4 and PS5 are based on AMD solutions. The same is true of Microsoft's latest platforms.
It is worth recalling that this is not the first time that speculations about the PC version of Final Fantasy VII Remake have appeared. Some time ago we wrote that the cover of the game stated that the game will only be available on PlayStation 4 until March 3 2021. It is therefore a temporary exclusive and ports to other platforms are very likely after the expiry of this deadline. If such versions are created, we can be practically sure that there will be a PC among the platforms, as Square Enix has ported most of the franchise to PCs in recent years.
Sony has been more relaxed lately about exclusives. The corporation is the publisher of Death Stranding, and yet the game will hit the PC next year. There were also rumors that a PC version of Horizon: Zero Dawn is being developed. The company will probably not try to stop the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake on PCs.
