Yep, thats what turned tomb raider, deus ex, guardians of the galaxy, and avengers into global smash hits on the level of elden ring. Square Enix is really shooting themselves in the foot by not following their western studios multiplatform rollout
FF games don't sell well on Xbox it's as simple as that .
People actually think an Xbox port would’ve made much a difference in sales.
GOTG being multi-platform didn’t help it sell any better and it was a quality game. If anything, the lack of sales stem from poor rapport (due to FFXV) and shit marketing.
Nobody knows exactly why, as pretty much every other FF game finally made it to Xbox after Sony gave up on all the shares they had in Square-Enix many years ago (only to buy exclusive deals afterwards, theirony.gif). Who tells you they won't be released on Xbox as well ? Who tells you Sony did not pay something to prevent this ? You have no clue.
As usual, you see the same people enforcing the idea that Xbox is not getting JRPGs (and Japanese games as a whole), as if they cared when they actually play on other consoles. How about letting Xbox players enjoy what they get and letting them show their support by buying these games, so that they actually have a chance to get more games like these (virtuous circle), rather than constantly enforcing the idea everywhere that these games don't sell on Xbox and are not profitable for the publisher (quick reminder : you have absolutely no clue about this).
They don’t at this point in time, though?
SE clearly doesn’t see an Xbox port as profitable if they made these timed-exclusive deals in the first place lol.
