Final Fantasy XV Director Says 170GB Install Size For PC “Was A Communications Mistake”

Recommended Videos

When Final Fantasy XV on PC was announced it came with some info showing its massive install size of 170GB. Director Hajime Tabata made some clarifications, saying it was a mistake in an interview with Kotaku Australia.

 

“That was a mistake, actually,” Tabata told Kotaku through a translator at Gamescom 2017. “That was a communications mistake – something got put in a memo that really shouldn’t have. What that is [the specifications that went out to press] based on the specs that we’re running the demo on today.”

 

The director goes on to clarify that the final specs of the release version haven’t been fixed yet, and that there’s a good chance they can change. According to Tabata, “Someone put that in there and it got reported as the recommended specs, but that’s not the final fixed version. The fact that it became that number is a communication [error].”

 

In addition to the enormous 170GB install size, the specs listed the super-pricey high-end video card, GTX 1080 Ti, as the “recommended specs.” Tabata added on that subject that the demo machines were using the GTX 1080 Ti cards, but the minimum specs would go down “at least as far as the same level as the console edition, maybe looking to going even further than that in the future.”

 

Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition releases in early 2018 for PC via Steam. The game is currently available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and is also getting a smartphone version.
