Square Enix hasn’t given up on Final Fantasy XIV as producer Naoki Yoshida has revealed that the PS3 version is on track for a Q1 2013 release. The PC version that was released last year is finally a bit stable after a lot of patches, and the PS3 version will include all that by default.
“As we have stated in our roadmap, which is available on our official site – that schedule we have there, we’re currently meeting that schedule,” Yoshida revealed Eurogamer.
“So, we’re not behind schedule. And we hope to have the game out pretty much at the same time that people expect.
“The teams that are working on developing have both the PC version up and the PS3 version up, making sure that development is going at the same time.
“Of course, because the PS3 has memory limitations – they’re limitations that are not on the PC – there has to be some optimising that has to be done. We’re working on that currently, right now.”
He also said that the game will be released on the PS3 and not its successor.
“We made a promise to our players that we are going to release this on PlayStation 3. So we must first fulfil that promise. That is our first goal. We must work as hard as we can to fulfil the promise that we made to the players,” he said.
“Once we’ve made that promise, then we can move on to the next promise. And at that time, if moving on to a new piece of hardware is there, then that will be our next promise.”
