Ruh roh folks, some news off the old rumor mill, and not all of it is good. Cording to various sources, various issues with the alpha test may hold Final Fantasy XIV back to a 2011 release...

O no really can't say this surprises me at all. I wouldn't woven be surprised if it ended up launching in Japan a few months before the rest of the world because of "an unexpected issue" I foresee the rest of the world getting shafted for one reason or another

After 8 years of waiting, a few more months isn't that big of a deal.

Rather have it delayed and be even better for it, than be rushed out and have a ton of bugs.

A tiny bit disappointed, but not enough to be anywhere surprised by this. I'm sure everyone can agree lol

The Alpha has been really bad to play and you can tell they have a long way to go.

But yeah, rather they take their time then rush it out.

SE should just say "Release date: whenever we feel like it" instead of crushing ppls dreams xD

If game developers did that, it would never be released because an artist's work is never truly finished.

That said, it's more for marketing reasons rather than because they feel like it. If people know when to expect a game to come out, they'll save money ahead of time, rather than just being suddenly forced to spend 60 dollars.

Would not be surprised at all if/when this is confirmed by SE. As odd as this sounds, XIV never felt like a 2010 game. More like a Summer 2011 at the soonest.

"Whenever we feel like it" release dates are strictly reserved for new Duke Nukem games and HL2: Episode 3.

I can see it now, as the Apocalypse starts to unfold, gamers galore gather for the midnight release of ffxiv, as meteors fall, and angels and demons battle for the fate of the earth MMORP'ers play on through out the firestorm!

Missed the boat on that one there, chief.

Can't say I'd be surprised if this turned out to be true. Square Enix said they wanted to have a beta period longer than the one they had for FFXI, and given that they haven't even officially started Alpha Stage 2 (scratch that, it started today), they're not exactly on track for finishing anything soon.

I bet the JP's are going to release a new mega JP Button to fix all the mis-haps over the years for the JP population in FFXI, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if JP got it 4months to a year longer than the rest of the world due to some kind of "shipping error, oops we got hacked" Therefore adding onto the legacy of JP being high levels before we even start...
