Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will not have free-to-play option

Even though recent free-to-play games have gone over considerably well, the upcoming Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn will not have that option. This will not only cover A Realm Reborn but it will apply to all MMO’s from Square Enix. (Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, PC, PS3, Square Enix, Wii, Xbox 360)

I dunno what Japan have against F2P&B2P but oh well i'm pretty sure tons of people will still go out and subscribe to the game.

Yep there will still be buyers but it would be nice if they started to embrace F2P.

Well the explanation is the blurb this entire post is about; It's not a consistent enough revenue stream. At least not for them.

After GW2 I don't think I can ever pay into subs. Shame because it seemed interesting... They need to evolve.

This kind of procedure alienates many players in my opinion.

Many don't know what to expect from a game like this even if its a Final Fantasy game at give a demo or something.

They lost a lot of money from the last version of this so I bet eventually there will be a f2p option

I'm glad it's not free to play. FFXI was a blast and i do believe i'll try this out.
