Wasn't sure if this deserved it's own news feed but I found it interesting so I figured I would put it in here
The original version of Final Fantasy XIV was… unpopular. The MMO debuted on PC back in 2010 toharsh criticism and low sales compared to the franchise as a whole, with less than a million copies sold worldwide. So Square Enix has rebuilt the game from the ground up. Not just because it wants to have a successful MMO: It views any chance of a Final Fantasy XV resting with A Realm Reborn succeeding. Producer Naoki Yoshida admitted in an interview that: "In the 25-year history of the Final Fantasy series, there hasn't been a Final Fantasy that has failed. We can't – we just can't – let this game end in failure." Yoshida was brought in two years ago as part of a change in teams that saw original producer Hiromichi Tanaka resign and most of the original team transferred to other titles. That happened in late 2010 and Yoshida and his team have been hard at work retooling the game ever since. Yoshida essentially views A Realm Reborn not as an update to a game to make it more appealing, but the first step to Square Enix earning the trust of gamers and repairing the damage to a long running gaming brand. In other words, they've got a lot staked on salvaging an unpopular entry in this classic franchise. We'll get a better sense of if it paid off later this year: The beta is expected to open at some point between October and December.
Well I am beginning to be interested in this game, I might actually give it a go once I get my new desktop computer in like two months . I mean I love final fantasy and if it turns out looking all well and good then that will be brilliant. I just wish they have a free to play model like WoW with like up to lvl 20.
Wow, less than standard settings and it still looks really good. I have to get a gaming PC soon; too many titles to miss out on.
im saying theres nothing final fantasy specific however it dosnt look like theres no final fantasy whatsoever. It may be just thethe spokesman. Plus final fantasy has no sspecific style unfortunately ff13 proved that.
