Well, they said that it was scheduled for 2010. I figure a 4-6 month beta, plus a little wrapup time between beta close and live launch for last minute bug fixes and tweaks puts them around the October-November area, which puts them right between the Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea expansion and patch releases; the perfect tie to get everyone into Eorzea, while at the same time hitting you with FFXI content in an attempt to keep the the games balanced in players

Balanced in players? Don't you think within just the first few weeks of it's release XIV will have 10 times as more players as XI currently has? You would better hope so!
#7 Mar 01 2010 at 4:36 PM Rating: Decent
I don't know about 10 times. FFXI still has a pretty good sized player base. When it comes down to it, i'm happy as long as my server is full. I realize that more full servers is better for the game in general though. Also, there is absolutely no reason to not assume a 2010 release date atm. so far, SE is right on Schedule. Barring only any major problems in Beta.

Edit: spelling

I'm willing to put $100 down right now that says they release it on a day ending in "y".

Final Fantas-y- ends in y, so the day they release it on will, too. and 14 is their second online game, 14 (the game) times 2 (the number of MMORPG FF games) = 28, means the month will have at least 28 days.

You heard it here first.

I've been guessing for December for a long while now, but I'm starting to think it will be after the last of the next three FFXI addons: spring 2011.

I heard the release date has a 48hr respawn, with a 3 hour window. But only during rainy weather. ><

Because out of 5 MMORPG's, at least 4 are delayed.

There have been many (potentially great) games getting a too early launch, resulting in most people leaving right after the first free month of gameplay. FFXIV is going to be huge and I don't think SE will rush anything, not even to cash-in on the X-mas sales.

SE devs have stated multiple times that they're both on track for, and confident of a 2010 release.

That's just it. SE has been working on this game for over 4 years now. I don't think they would ever jump the gun to get an early release. That's exactly why i believe them when they say 2010. They are the type to give you a 2010 release date, on a game that was pretty much ready to go in 2009.

Well I hope you are right! But the first alpha-stage hasn't even started, so don't cheer too early!

I will point out another big japanese manufacturer, Sony, which delayed a project to ensure it was the best possible on release date. I do believe SE will follow the ps3 model and wait until it really is ready to ship (unlike our friends at M$). I really believe a 2010 release date, but I also am not excluding the possibility of delays to ensure a completed project.

My bet is on a Late Oct. / Mid Nov. date. If the first round of testing (notice I didn't say alpha or beta cause really, who knows what the heck the difference is anymore?) is starting this month, and is supposed to go on for 6 months or so that would put you into Sept/Oct, give SE some time for finishing touches, and voila FFXIV is on the shelves in time for the Christmas shopping rush.


On a side note, as nice of a Christmas present it would be, my wife already knows that the day it comes out is the day I'm getting and loading it. :)

I'm thinking they'll be able to meet a Q4 deadline. The game has a lot of precedent that they'll be studying and borrowing from during development. It also doesn't look to be straying too far from its predecessor. I think those factors will help keep SE from running into a lot of unexpected hang-ups.

That's my hope, at least.

After watching so many ambitious and highly anticipated fall 2009 games slip into 2010, I'm going with Q1 2011 for FFXIV. In my opinion Q3/Q4 2010 is wishful thinking, Q1/Q2 2011 is realistic. But I'll happily eat my words if I'm wrong. :)

$1000 says it'll be done "when it's done".

The biggest reason I'm anticipating ffxiv is that the devs have this attitude that "it'll be done when it's done". This is great. I know I won't get a rushed project (Aion) or an incomplete game (global Agenda). Nothing is going to be half @$$ed

10/10/10 is a Sunday. No game will ever be released on a Sunday. The poster with 10/12/10 is probably much closer. Though, end of October (10/26), on a Tuesday, would coincide with the NA PC release of FFXI.

I would guess October or possibly November, I do not expect them to botch the 2010 release, they are very confident, and it's an MMO, if they are even remotely intelligent (And they are) they are saving the extraneous crap for last, at worst I expect some unknown stuff will be cut and pushed back to the first version update in Q1 2011.

I have it on good authority that they are aiming to release within a week or two of Cataclysm's release.

So my vote is a week or two before or after November 1st, 2010.
