TOKYO, JAPAN (December 10, 2010) – Square Enix Co., Ltd. announced today a change in the release timing of FINAL FANTASY® XIV for the PlayStation®3 (PS3®) Computer Entertainment System originally planned for early March 2011.
PS3 Version of FINAL FANTASY XIV
Previously announced launch timing: Early March 2011
New launch timing: To be determined
The massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) FINAL FANTASY XIV launched on the Windows® PC platform on September 30, 2010 and currently offers the service to customers in English, German, French, and Japanese.
Rather than simply converting the current Windows PC version, it is our intention to include all the improvements we currently plan to meet customer expectations for the PS3 version. In order to do so, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the release timing of the PS3 version from our previous plan of early March 2011. The new release date will be announced swiftly upon final determination.
We would like to thank customers and other related parties for their patience as they eagerly await the release of the PS3 version.
Since the launch of the Windows PC version, we have taken a number of actions based on user feedback to provide them a better game experience including a major version update in late November. In addition, we have decided to extend the free trial period until after we can confidently present customers with a plan outlining a level of enjoyment that will satisfy both us and our customers.
