How Square Enix is planning for Final Fantasy XIV's rebirth

It’s been a rocky road for Final Fantasy XIV. The game arrived as Square Enix’s brave new attempt to crack the MMO market. But it failed.

One critic wrote “the kindest thing that can be said about the FF MMO is that it has a good intro movie”.

Square Enix president and CEO Yoichi Wada even apologised to fans. The publisher extended the free trial period, reshuffled the development team, and issued several game updates. But finally, two years later, Square Enix made the tough decision to simply start all over again. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Yoichi Wada)

I'm hoping people re-review this game when the 2.0 version comes out so I can see if it's worth the investment.

By announcing the release date of Versus XIII...

I actually don't think that is how Square prepared for FF14 2.0 at all.

You know, Capt-Fuzzy Pants, "sex sells" logic sells.

I'm sure it'll get some attention. I think I'm like many others that either A) have been patiently waiting for a PS3 release and B) played when the game first came out and quit because it was so bad, yet very much want the game to be good. I hope 2.0 feels more like an updated FFXI

By hopefully making funeral arrangements, it's gonna be just as bad as when it first came out. No amount of making it looks better or adding new things can make up for the fact that the gameplay was terrible.

"It's gonna be just as bad as when it first came out."

That makes absolutely no sense.

"No amount of making it 'looks' better or adding new things can make up for the fact that the 'gameplay was terrible'."

Are you just pulling these predictions out of your ass or can you actually see into the future?

If so, can you tell me if I get my Dragoon relic weapon before A Realm Reborn launches?

Do I strike it rich?

Does Rare actually go back to making good games!?

I just want to know from the time lord himself, Summons75!

"The gameplay 'was' terrible."

Notice the past tense used here. "Was".

Have you done any research on this game or have any knowledge what so ever on what has been going on or are you some poor bastard passing through here to take a misinformed shit all over the comments section?

If only I had a quarter for every misinformed information spreader on this game. I'd have a life-time subscription by now. LOL

Except for the fact the gameplay is getting re-worked maybe? Your comment is ridiculously ignorant
