Actually I'm not sure anymore.

They could be saying Forge is out in November as Open Beta.

Official plan is September.

Or maybe Forge in September as an insider flight but a fully open beta in November.

I regret posting that tweet now, Lol. 343, please talk about Forge...

Xbox getting shafted by Square again with Tactics Ogre: Reborn lol.

Makes me wonder if Xbox just isn't making a good enough case to Square during negotiations? 

Imo i think thats just Square, they pick a console and mostly stick with it, Nintendo at first and then Sony. Hell they are even doing the worst job lately of porting their games to PC and i bet they hate the fact they have to or need to, i bet they wish they could go back to their one closed garden of supporting one console only and thats it.

But it's not just Square games missing Xbox...

If anything, MS's recent moves to get ppl into the JPN market to work with vendors is because whatever they were doing before clearly wasn't working and we're seeing the results of that with a quite a few titles skipping Xbox.

That should change though.. 



I honestly couldn't say what the issue is at Square when it comes to what platforms they decide to release their games on. Some games skip PS such as Triangle Strategy, Octopath Traveler, and Harvestella. Then you have some games that Square decides to release on Xbox like Star Ocean and The DioField Chronicles (note how Star Ocean is skipping Switch for whatever reason). Plus we already know Sony moneyhats Squares big AAA games like FFVIIR, FFXVI, and Forspoken. Although VIIR timed deal has supposedly come to an end and yet still no port to Xbox, as I said, I couldn't say what the issue is with Square releasing some of their games on some platforms but not others. It's not just Xbox, they've skipped a few games on PS as well and even on Switch.

Ultimately, I'd say if you want to play every Square Enix game, your best bet isn't even owning a PS5 or Switch (exclusively) but surprisingly, owning a gaming PC seems to better guarantee you seeing all of these games from FFVII and FFXVI to Harvestella and Star Ocean

Edit: or just buy a PS5+Switch, that would probably be cheaper than getting a decent gaming PC.

That's a really good point, and even then, it's a coin toss as to whether or not the PC port will be decent lol. Will it be broken as hell? Will it be a copy/paste of the console version with no PC optimizations whatsoever or just very poorly optimized? Will it be a EGS exclusive? It's a surprise

I agree with you that PS5+Switch would be your best bet.
