If you're into PC gaming and the Final Fantasy series, you may be in luck. The famed RPG series is traditionally rooted in consoles but it could soon be calling home to the PC in the future.

Speaking to Eurogamer, producer Yoshnori Kitase explains.

"Let's not forget, when we developed the Final Fantasy XIII series, all three titles, at the early stages of development we were working on PC," Kitase said.

"Then we had to port it to the consoles. As far as the technology is concerned, it would have been possible for us to make a PC version, but we decided against it for two reasons: we looked at the market situation and we didn't think it would be a good idea, and also it would have involved lots of complex issues like security. So we decided not to do it this time around.

"But we see potential in it and there are lots of regions and countries where PC is very strong. So in terms of our hope of being able to deliver our games to every single country in the world and to as many gamers as possible, yes, we would definitely be interested in pursuing that route in the future."

Currently MMORPG titles Final Fantasy XI and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn are currently on the PC with recent Steam releases of Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII

"Final Fantasy VII and VIII are now available on PC and they've been proving quite popular," Kitase said. "It's an early stage for us. We haven't got an awful lot of experience in this field. So when we have more know-how and experience in this market we would be very interested."

The next installment, Final Fantasy XV, is slated for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In light of Kitase's comments, perhaps a PC version of FFXV is a good possibility.

    With the new generation of consoles sharing standard PC architecture there's really no excuse for certain games not being on consoles as well as PCs. If it's easy and cheap enough (which it now should be) then there's no reason not to be on as many platforms as possible.

    For crying out loud Squeenix just port Bravely Default to Steam already. Keep making more FF titles for the PC too. Is that really so much to ask? Since I'm going for the moon, how about ChronoCross too?
