Xbox Head Phil Spencer revealed during a pre-show event that Final Fantasy XIV will also arrive at some point. He went on to say, “While it’s not in the news today, I wanted you to know, rest assured, that we will be bringing that game to Xbox. We have a great relationship with Yoshida-san, and we’re working through what it means to bring a cross-platform MMO that they’ve run for years.”
Finally, Square Enix will also bring Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue to Xbox One in 2020. When including Kingdom Hearts III, this indicates that every entry in the series will become available on the console. This will give access to Xbox One owners who wish to jump into the series before playing the latest game. Speaking of Kingdom Hearts III, a new demo for the game is currently available on both Xbox One and PS4.
