Final Fantasy XIV’s Rebirth Delayed Development Of Other Square Enix Games Read

Siliconera: "The failure of Final Fantasy XIV had a huge effect on Square Enix and the damage wasn’t limited to the company’s bottom line." (Dev, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Square Enix)

And that is why you fail!

FFXIII and XIV failing **** on Versus. XIII-2 was only decent, now Xiii-3, come on. Why not just finish Versus and then try and pick up the pieces of other games...

So that's why we don't see new IPs like we did on the SNES, PS1, PS2. Because they're scared?

That kind of sucks.I would've loved to see new games like Vagrant Story, Kingdom Hearts, Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, etc. That's what this gen has been missing for me. The new, JRPGs that have potential to spawn franchises.

Hopefully next gen the recover from the losses from FF14, get a little risky and start making new IPs again, along with Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest, all the Eidos games and Final Fantasy.

Vagrant story is one of my most favorite games of all time! Chrono trigger too

Personally I felt it was too soon for another FF MMORPG.

I agree to a extent. After playing XI for like 7 years I do admit I kinda wanted a new and fresh FF MMO but the problem was that Wada made them ship XIV out full well knowing the game was at least a year or 2 away from being ready.(He probably thought something like "MMO's have patches we can fix what is broken" which is a terrible way of thinking.

If it had stayed in development until it was done and took the extra year or 2 it needed I think people might have been more willing to give it a shot but it did kinda come a bit to soon. The ironic thing is that A Realm Reborn is coming out when the original version probably should have and it has been built almost from the ground up in only 2 or so years. Which is nuts for a MMO and the most important thing is that it looks really good.

I agree somewhat that if they held back and "finished" the game that it might of done better, but looking back on it now, if they hadn't released it in such a state, than the game wouldn't of been getting the fixing it's getting now. I personally love the way it's going and even though it's been about 2-3 years, I'm still looking forward to XIV.

I understand they wanted to try something new with the FFXIV and all, but just having FFXI's system with enhancements and changes to better fit people of this day and age would of been better and safer, IMO.

@Reibooi

So are you thinking about getting Realm Reborn?
I think it actually looks pretty good, thinking about giving Guild wars 2 a break and trying it out when it launches.

@VileAndVicious

Oh yeah I will be playing A Realm Reborn. I have been playing XIV since it's launch. I stuck around mainly because they made it free and I wanted to see how much they would change.(which was ALOT and A Realm Reborn will be alot more)

I fully expect A Realm Reborn to be a truly great MMO. The question here is if SE can get others to realize the same. The terrible launch of XIV damage the image of the game to a massive extent and people are not gonna be so easy on it the 2nd time around. SE needs to find out how to pull in alot of new players or the game will die. Even if it's a truly good game it needs players to survive.

I have seen enough to confidently say I think it will be great. I just hope SE can convince those who are not following the game closely the same.

I won't be satisfied with Square until Wada publicly apologizes and commits seppuku In front of a live tv audience broadcast by NBC during The Voice halftime finale.
GraveLord  +   960d ago
Waste of resources. They should have just let the game die.

square stop remaking 14 and cancelled lighting returns and give us kingdom hearts 3 and versus 13 the only thing that is pulling you guy's through this gen is edios games
