1UP has interviewed Final Fantasy XI's game producer Hiromichi Tanaka, global online producer Sage Sundi and Treasures of Aht Urghan director Koichi Ogawa about Square Enix's recently announced Final Fantasy XI: Wings of the Goddess. Here's a snippet from the article:
1UP: What I think is great about another expansion is seeing that you guys are going to continue to support FFXI, and that you're not just abandoning it or letting it idle and rot while you move on to other things. Which leads me on to my next question. How long do you foresee supporting the players? There are a lot of players who have spent five years now playing the game. What's the big picture plan for FFXI?
HT: There haven't been many changes to the development process since the beginning of the game, and because there are so many players that keep playing and haven't stopped playing, we're going to keep making content for those people. As long as there are people playing we're going to make new content.
