Last week, Square Enix dated Final Fantasy XIV for both the PlayStation 3 and PC. The PC version is set to hit this September while the PS3 version will launch six months later in March 2011. When Jeux Online caught up with producer Hiromichi Tanaka, they quizzed him on the subject.
“Yes, it’s a shame. We understand the wrath of players and the developers are sorry because they did everything they could to have a simultaneous release date,” Tanaka told the French gaming website, “but unfortunately they have encountered many technical problems on the development of the game for PlayStation 3. We strive to release the game as soon as possible.”
When asked if the March 2011 release date was not final, Tanaka replied:
“If possible, we would publish the game sooner. We would like to start the beta as soon as possible on PlayStation 3.”
Let’s hope they can get the game out sooner, then. Six months later is much too long.
