I give up guessing, but I know some of you like to try to work out when XIV will be released in relation to XIII.
Amazon US has XIII being released on 31 december 2010.
Amazon UK and play.com has XIII being released on 25 june 2010.
I don't trust play.com, more inclined to believe amazon.
Couldn't see a release date on the square europe site though.

June 25th '10 is what the people at my local Gamestop said, for XIII. I live in the US.

It probably won't be on Dec. 31 2010. You can most likely safely assume that it's just a filler date; since all we know is that it's coming out in 2010.

Placeholder dates, they do it with all games that have undeclared ETAs.

FFXIII is being released spring 10 which should be about may or June which lines up with most of the Gamestops and Pre-order places and I don't think SE will release FFXIV on top of it so my Guess is Nov 2010 which Nov is the same month that FFXI was release in NA.

My Guess anyway

Kitase said that FFXIII will be released in US/EU in Spring 2010, which can be anywhere between March to May(we're talking about seasons, not financial years...so in what part of the earth is June called Spring season???)

My personal guess would be April. Releasing "blockbuster games" near summer is and will always be a financial issue. Sales will be lower, just like in cinemas and people playing MMOs...March would be too soon considering localisation works and May will be too late, so April for me^^

Taking that into account, my guess for FFXIV is autumn. So sometime in September to November.

10th October 2010 really sounds fitting^^

Well the date for Amazon, if people hadn't noticed the 31st is the last day of 2010, so they obviously don't have a date yet. But i would assume they would release in the spring, as most MMO's are busiest during the summer. That is their best chance to sell the most copies.

haha, well waddayaknow! sherlock holmes joines us on ZAM forum! :D

and also... you must be utterly retarded to think summer is the best season for any game developer out there. Its summer kid ... people are outside and on holiday. And i dont think gaming has anything to do with seasons though. If seasons did influence this, it would be in winter where everybody feels like **** and dont wanne go outside. Maybe December even.... around christmas. People go crazy with gifts these days.

If you want to play the guessing game, remember that movies and software are released in the U.S. on a Tuesday, so 10/10/10 is a no/no/no.
