No PS3 Version of Final Fantasy XIV Until 2013
Fans of Final Fantasy and MMOs alike were all too aware that Final Fantasy XIV had a rocky launch. So rocky was this launch, in fact, that a new team was brought in to fix the game and the PS3 version was postponed. Square-Enix has recently revealed a development roadmap for Final Fantasy XIV, and one thing that stands out is how long we'll be waiting on that PS3 version.
The closed beta of the PS3 version isn't expected to start until the end of 2012 and will carry over into early 2013, putting quite some time between players and a console build of Final Fantasy XIV. As disappointing as that is, it's understandable. No one wants a repeat of the game's PC launch, and it is impressive to see the amount of work that the new team has put into completely rebuilding the game.
Also of note is that Version 2.0 of Final Fantasy XIV will be getting a new trailer at next year's E3, soon followed by the release of the 2.0 client and a new free trial period. Those still playing Final Fantasy XIV can expect a number of major content changes as we draw ever closer to the release of Version 2.0.
Naoki Yoshida, Final Fantasy XIV's director and producer, concluded by saying, “I promise that we will continue to give all FINAL FANTASY XIV players our full attention as we do everything in our power to provide a high-quality service, and as such, would like ask for your continued encouragement and support. As always, everything we do will be for our players and customers.”
