It’s been nearly a year since its initial announcement, but Square Enix has finally pulled back a little bit of the curtain on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Following the original MMO’s disastrous launch, Square Enix promises a whole new game out of A Realm Reborn, which is slated to hit the PlayStation 3 and PC.
According to a SquEnix press release, A Realm Reborn has been rebuilt from the ground up, offering a new world to explore and storyline to follow. Formerly referred to as Final Fantasy XIV Version 2.0, the developers hope A Realm Reborn can win over new fans while appeasing those who felt, shall we say, cheated by the original release.
“Since announcing our plans for the future of the title last October, we have been working tirelessly to include all of te elements that we have promised in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn,” said producer/director Naoki Yoshida. “This new title not only becomes a symbol of a completely new Final Fantasy XIV, but also marks the beginning of a new stage as the latest title in the Final Fantasy series.”
Final Fantasy XIV was originally released in late 2010 to an overwhelmingly negative reception. Fans were unimpressed with just about every aspect of the game, leading to an internal development shuffle to rebuild the game from the ground up. Those efforts are apparently drawing close to fruition, as Square Enix has ramped up promotion for the A Realm Reborn relaunch.
