I must admit -- Square Enix has been making many promises regarding Final Fantasy XIV, but I fell victim to the pessimism. They offered new items, new monsters, free months and more, but like many of our forum goers, I still felt disillusioned.
However, today's announcement has blown me away. Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada stepped up and initiated a complete overhaul of the development team roster. Hiromichi Tanaka has stepped down from his role as Producer, and Nobuaki Komoto has moved from Director to Lead Game Designer.
Adventurers can rest easy knowing that Naoki Yoshida is now at the reigns.
Wait, who is Naoki Yoshida?
