I have to say I am quite disappointed this day. However, I was so excited when FFXIV first came out, but was quickly disappointed with the unfinished product. So with that being said, it sucks, but I much rather have a full AMAZING game, than another disaster. In the meantime...I guess it's hello GW2...or maybe Blade and Soul will be out soon to hold me over. =\

I guess Square Enix really learned their lesson this time. It's better to get it right than to get it early. As much as waiting isn't fun, it beats the heck out of getting a bad game.

Waiting sucks! I'm an mmo junkie...League of Legends can only do so much. Forcing myself to get higher than level 13 in GW2...see if maybe I can enjoy the game until ARR launch.

Summer! Clearly a lie! This website shows "FFXIV: ARR is going to be released on December 31st, 2013"

Oh wait... .maybe you can't believe everything you read on the internet.


The new road map is going to be out before the end of the year. I think you are over reacting because one article said "Summer 2013".

A lot of people on these forums seem to be living in a bubble. The Square-Enix name is in bad shape right now. They lost the trust the trust of a lot of people and now they need to win it back. Until they do a lot of what they say will be met with suspicion.

I don't disagree that SE is in a bad way. However, YoshiP HAS done his best to stay true to his word and not promise things he can't produce. And when he doesn't produce those things on time, he has a promt appology. To point fingers at SE is one thing, to point them at a person who is going against the cultural grain is another.

I don't know if 2.0 will be a success, I don't know if it will meet MY expectations... I do know that this is a turning point for Japanese gaming companies (well the large ones anyway, the smaller onesfigured this out already). I'd love to see a resurgance of the old SquareSoft amazingness, and IMO it hinges on the final product we get when 2.0 emerges from Beta.

I tried to scald the people who were on the 'two months after server shutdown' train. Pointed out several times in various threads that the information they were giving people was not only improbable, but irrational too. All it got me was the usual negative nancy talk and a bunch of red arrow.

If you can't make it to market by Christmas, it's best to put it off until Summer anyway. It also makes sense because given the bad initial launch, SE can't afford to re-launch with bugs. You'd want to have your 'save the franchise' PS3 players getting in on some beta action before PC goes live too. There was enough of an outcry at PC launch about the headstart those players got over PS3 so I'd assume they'll make arrangements to launch both platforms simultaneously this time.

I'd rather them wait to get it right this time around then to rush a product that some might flee from in a short amount of time. You'll have a lot of renewed interest, plus new players this time around, just take your time and do it right. The few that are clamoring that it won't be a quick enough release need to be ignored as you can potentially gain thousands of new players by releasing a good product.

Wait until the new road map is out before tossing nerd rage fits. I doubt SE knows if it will be released in February or July. This is not the gospel truth.

Nothing about this is confirmed, it's speculation.

I speculate late-April/early-May

PS3 Beta and PC free trial was supposed to start this month, per the original roadmap: http://gdl.square-enix.com/ffxiv/download/en/FFXIV_2.0_Roadmap_EN.pdf

In the most recent letter to the producer, he said they're about 2 months and 2 weeks behind that, which would put the PS3 beta actually due mid January, early February. Add to that the actual beta test time, and it's not going to be any earlier than mid to late spring I should think. So, saying "Summer" isn't all that far off.

I can't say I'm happy that I'm going to have to wait that much longer to play on my PS3, so I'm just hoping for beta access :)

That original roadmap also says that the PC free trial is supposed to start at the same time as the PS3 beta, so that may still come earlier.

Here's hoping they'll release a new roadmap soon, then we won't have to speculate.

SE never set a release date, any date you ever seen was player speculation. Summer makes sense though.

It could be worse... they could be dealing with the PS Vita.

Hey now, I like my Vita Smiley: smile Persona 4 Golden is sooooo good.

Unfortunately though you're right, Sony is hurting badly.

PSVITA is a cool system, at least for me because I finally got to try out PSP games I missed out on (Half Minute Hero is the most fun thing I've played this year). I can't really recommend the PSVITA based on games made for it though...

I hope one day they drop this console war nonsense and make a uniform platform like DVD for example so I don't have to buy 3 different consoles that runs identical games because of exclusives.

PSVita is garbage, the only thing you could get one for, is to play PSP games on it, and for that, you might as well get a PSP.

I said I'd buy a PS Vita and the darn $75 data plan from AT&T if they managed to port FFXI over to it.

Unfortunately I need to agree with you. I wanted to want one when my psp broke, but didn't feel like buying my old PSP games at full price again... So I just got another psp. I'm mildly interested in persona 4 but I can just get it for PS2... HOWEVER if Atlus releases a new shin megami tensai for it (especially one more in the style of nocturne) I'd be all over it.

Also, my bad memories of using media go with my psp have made me wary of sony products... So aggravating!

Basically if they price drop it and add new games (that aren't ps2 revamps) I'd be more interested. I do think they need to price drop soon though, because the low install base makes it less attractive to develop for. I'm actually more tempted to get a second 3DS (want the XL) than a vita at this point, that extra 100-150 cost (with pricey media card but no game) is a huge component of that.

That said I am a handheld addict so I will get a Vita eventually, I am sure



Wat i really wanted to say is it looks like they are timing this to come out after XI's expansion.... Seems purposeful. A smart move, I think. No need for them to canibalize their own game without milking it dry first

Summer in which country? USA, Japan? Australia? Could be that we are still on for a March 2013 launch - that would be just going into summer in Japan (I think) and the tail end of summer in the region!

Other way around. Those outside the know are unaware of the levels of effort put into recreating this title, which they're flag shipping essentially as the renewal of their company's policy. Yoshida isn't just leading the charge for FFXIV here and everyone who's been following the game closely knows it. He's essentially leading the company image. SE will resurrect or fall on his efforts. I can't imagine the pressure.

However, I'm fairly confident in his ability to succeed in at least producing a title worthy of the franchise. My main concern is the company remembering the lessons learned by this title, and be absolutely sure to apply it to their company policies going forward.


Right now, Yoshi-P and Square Enix are two separate entities to me. I want that not to be the case in the best possible way.


As far as the release approximation, that's not the official word from SE, however I would take that as an indication of delay. Yoshida himself said they were two and a half months behind schedule so that would put them on late Q1 Early Q2.

My personal estimation is some time late summer/early fall, given Yoshida's uncompromising caution when it comes to this game's quality. Again, NA feedback has yet to hit alpha, and when it does, he's likely going to get hit with criticism he did not anticipate (given how unsatisfiable gamers in the west can be). He'll undoubtedly want to regard as much of it as feasible.

Japan is in the northern hemisphere, so follows the same seasonal cycle as USA and Europe. Only Australia is different in the list you've gave, it being in the southern hemisphere and so follows inverted seasonal cycles.

Massive straw clutch I'm afraid, my friend :)

Beta.
I never had a shot with Global Alpha. Although I must say all of the Global Alpha complaint threads is probably more amusing than the testing itself. Speculation only, of course.
