Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada announced their plans to release an additional MMO to run simultaneously with Final Fantasy XIV.
They can barely maintain their latest MMO and they want to release another?
That's what I was thinking....I take MMO announcements these days like a grain of salt.
URGH Square NOONE wants ANOTHER MMO after your crappy last one. Just stick to making quality single player RPGs - something you havent made for at least 4 years now. Hurry the hell up and do what your fans want.
While it's true FFXIV is having trouble that shouldn't impact this game. It won't be made by the team who made XI(as they are still working on XI) or XIV(as that team is trying to get XIV up to par). Alot of people over on the FFXIV forums seem to think it's possible this may be a Eidos project(Rumor has it that it could be that Fortress Project that was related to FFXII and was cancelled and Eidos is working on it now but who knows). I wouldn't get all excited over it simply because of the issues relating to FFXIV however I doubt given what happened with XIV that SE will do it again and if they do then they deserve to fail.
Im pretty sure this is supposed to be retribution for the crapfest that was XIV. I was SOOOO excited for it too. Its just to bad. I have a feeling there going to go more for the general feel of the genre this time around then try to innovate like they did with XIV. As Reibooi above says i doubt they would go for the same development design process as XIV simply for the matter of fact it doesnt work. Otherwise they simply deserve to fail.
I will faint if that happens.
Why so they can trash another great series?
Ah I see what you did there.
I hope it's a remake / sequel to FFXI with a few tweaks That game was magical when it first came out The best about FFXI when it first came out was the tolerance and fun of mixing and matching subjobs to find out how they complimented each other.
Agree'd. FFXI was great, wish I kept playing it when I did.
ya im also hoping for it to be a ffxi reboot.
Pretty much just give XI an HD makeover with enough new content added onto what already exists to call it a "New" mmo and im happy! xD Then again you can still find me playing XI, so either way! lol
Wow, I knew FFXIV was doing bad (for obvious reasons), but I never thought It would be doing THIS bad.
...Because they've done such a bang up job with XIV, right?
hell yeah its free because of their bang up job. where do they find this confidence..
NO your last two sucked stop it
No, there last one sucked... XI was/is great. But then again thats just my opinion.
FFXIV was horrible. I'll never buy a CE from SE again. This one better be FUN.
FIX FFXIV FIRST!
Another mmo? Isn't it fairly obvious after what went on with FF14 that Square are incapable of making a decent selling fun mmo game? How patient and forgiving are Square's shareholders? Like seriously, why is Wada still in a job? He's driving Square further and further into the gutter and it's disgraceful considering they used to be such a well respected company that made fantastic console games.
Its obvious what square are trying to do - If they get something like another WoW happening they are sitting on a minefield. But noone is asking for these crappy MMOs. THey are just doing what they think will make the most money instead of sticking to what theyre good at.
all I keep thinking is how awesome there japanese lineup is right now And try to keep all this other ceo crap out of my head
So long as its not the save developers as 14
How ff14 was released from the state it was described to me to retail is beyond me, when the retard developers are trying to change the name chocobos to horsebirds someone should be beaten to death.
DragonQuest MMO i'm cslling it.
