Final Fantasy IX remake would be exclusive to PlayStation
Although no details about the project are provided, the insider points out that we are still far from knowing about it, at least 2 years, which is a feasible period since the Final Fantasy XVI cycle will soon begin and this will be followed by the second part of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
On the other hand, and perhaps what will generate controversy, is that this supposed remake of Final Fantasy IX would be exclusive to the PlayStation console because the insider assured that the information he saw and that allows him to reveal the existence of this project “says PlayStation for all parts”. In this case, it would not be something unusual since Sony and Square Enix have strengthened ties and this has resulted in periods of temporary exclusivity to later reach PC. In this sense, the insider mentions that there is not a single mention of Nintendo Switch, although in 2 years from now we will surely be talking about the new Nintendo console.
