Square: As long as there are players, we will continue to support FF11

From Strategy Informer: "Despite launching another MMO version of the franchise later this year, Square have said they will continue to support their previous MMO, Final Fantasy XI.

Speaking in an interview, Senior Vice-President of Software development Hiromichi Tanaka, said that, whilst he believes Final Fantasy XI has "reached its time", they will continue to support the game if there are still players."

Rumours suggested that it would be ending in 2010, support that is.

They will not stop support. They have a mini expansion for the game coming out near the end of the year and it makes no sense to release that and then a few weeks later end support for the game.

Honestly compared to how much it probably costs them to keep the game running(very little) and the amount of players they still have(somewhere between 500k-800k) it's still one of their most profitable games.

They will more then likely still be making more money off of XI then XIV until costs of running XIV come down unless XIV is a MASSIVE hit.

And when FFIV hits, it will be shutdown like Halo 2!

Nope they said from the very beginning before XIV even got it's number that they wouldn't end support.

They'll 'support' it I'm sure by keeping the servers active. But support it as in make another real expansion pack for it they stopped that back in 2006 - And no the mini expansions, and copy-and-pasted areas (wings of the goddess) don't count.

I've been playing it alot lately in anticipation for FF14, but once 14 comes out I'll probably leave from FF11.
