Final Fantasy XIV PS3 delayed

The PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIV has been delayed from its original March 2011 release date to a new, to be determined date, Square Enix announced this morning.

The delay allows the development team to better “meet customer expectations” for the PlayStation 3 version, rather than release a rushed product. A new release date will be announced “swiftly upon final determination.”

A restructure to the development team has also been announced. Final Fantasy XIV‘s original producer, Hiromichi Tanaka, has stepped down. Naoki Yoshi has taken over as both director and producer, who’s top priority has always been customer satisfaction, says the company. “Several” other new leaders are now also working on the game.

As for the PC version, the team is working on game-fixing updates as we speak. They’re fully aware that the game in its current state doesn’t include the enjoyability that Final Fantasy fans have come to expect from the franchise, so Square Enix has extended the game’s free trial period until they’ve outlined a solid plan for the game’s new direction.

  • Well i doubt that they can repair this awful game, but at least they are aware of the customers unsatisfaction.

    You know I was really looking forward to this game…until I heard how terrible it was. I’ll wait.

    They have been aware of the customer disgust. Which is why they haven’t charged a monthly fee yet.

    They honestly have been listening and trying to fix the game, it was released in a beta stage, and mmorpgs can really improve with each big patch. Next one is this month.

    Final Fantasy games are not what they once were. I miss the good old days with flying around in airships and navigating a huge world map.

    I was a big fan of FFXI and can’t wait for this one….just hope it hits the PS3 by at least late next year
