I gotta say I am a little let down that there was no "release date" given. It would have been nice to have at least what month they are shooting for having the game out.

I've got to say that I was delighted that we got a quarter and as the 4th quarter release date we know it has to be October, November, and/or December. Just knowing that it will be this year is a huge step forward. My guess is December right in time for Christmas. Optimal time to release this year from their standpoint because of two reasons. First is that it gives them the longest amount of time to develop and still keep their word for 4th quarter and second is that it is right when everyone is spending money. Good business sense right there.

Seeing as how we have 6 months left in the year and they said beta would last right around 6 months I would say we are right on time for a end of the year 2010 release.

I don't know of any MMO that has a release date before the beta starts. Not one that is any good at least.

If the game is to be released in their 2010 fiscal year then they have till March. If its the end of year then December.

I want to say i read that SE was talking about their fiscal year, but i could be wrong.

There was a thread on that very subject a few weeks ago. IIRC it was more or less agreed that FFXIV is to be released during the calendar year of 2010, rather than the fiscal year.

It's been confirmed a few times now that it will be in the calendar year 2010.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

really? i hope you guys are right!

seems like the Beta is beginning behind schedule?

alpha fixes > beta > beta fixes > final production > shipping

I guess if they have all their distribution ducks in a row then it's possible. Seems like a lot of steps to go for just 7 months.
