With the exception of some lucky alpha testers, Final Fantasy XIV
players didn't have a game to play over the holidays. The title shut down a couple of months ago
in preparation for its rebirth as A Realm Reborn
. Now, however, it looks like FFXIV
fans have something to look forward to come next week.
In a New Year's greeting that talks about the release of FFXIV's
next incarnation in 2013, producer Naoki Yoshida
tells players to mark January 7th on their calendars. Unfortunately, he gives no other information beyond this teaser, so the significance of the date is up in the air. Will it be a beta test, a launch, or something else completely? We just can't say, but we will keep you updated when we find out!
