Kitase is an interview from last July said the game is a PS5 is exclusive is due to the speed of the SSD.
"It's exclusive to PlayStation 5 because of the graphical quality, of course, as well as SSD access speed," Kitase said at the time. "Since the adventure unfolds in a vast world after the escape from Midgar, loading stress is an extreme bottleneck. We felt we needed the specifications of PlayStation 5 to overcome that and travel the world comfortably."
