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.
