Final Fantasy 14 release date and final beta 3 update

We finally have a welcome update on the release status of Final Fantasy XIV to bring you. The troubled game previously launched on PC, before being given a full revamp by Square-Enix after widespread criticism. The fresh version has now been given a definitive release in Summer and will also be making its way to the PS3, alongside PC versions.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn has been in and out of beta phases, letting PC users have the first glimpse of the ‘reborn’ game during beta phases 1 and 2. The good news is that Square-Enix has confirmed that the game will be out in the Summer and also confirmed that the final beta for the game, phase 3, will be out in June.

This is significant in the fact that PS3 players will also be able to take part in the beta for the very first time, as betas 1 and 2 were previously only available for the PC. It also tells us that if phase 3 is beginning in June, the final game will be released sometime in either July or August at the very latest.

It has been a very long development journey to say the least, so we just hope that Square-Enix has learned their lesson from the original PC launch and have created a new game that can finally be worthy of joining the ranks alongside other Final Fantasy greats like 7,8,9 and 10.

While Final Fantasy 14 is now due out for a Summer release, don’t forget that Square-Enix will also be announcing a new Final Fantasy game for the PS4 at Sony’s press E3 2013 conference in June. Will this end up being Final Fantasy Versus XIII at last, or even Versus XIII transforming into Final Fantasy 15 as rumors suggest?

We wonder if there is a possibility of Final Fantasy 14 being transferred over to the PS4 as well via Gaikai streaming, so subscribers wouldn’t have to contemplate potential problems if they plan on switching to next-gen. If you have followed the FF14 journey from the very start, let us know if you will be buying the full game this Summer or not.

Does Final Fantasy 14 deserve another chance?
