Before you get all worked up, this is just a rumor at the moment. It has been reported by one source that Square-Enix are planning to shut down the online servers for Final Fantasy XI, to make way for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV game.
That’s according to VG247, who have taken their info from GameCrep. Seems like a pretty drastic and risky move to us, considering the game has picked up a cult following, ever since its launch way back in 2002.
Surely they can take the necessary measures to keep both games up and running, so everyone stays happy, no?
We’ll get back to you when we hear from SE themselves. If you still play FFXI, let us know what you think of this.
