Producer Naoki Yoshida
wants to assure players suffering from the heartbreak of server congestion that sunny days are indeed ahead
for Final Fantasy XIV
. To lessen the crush that players have put upon the game, the studio has added new worlds, instance servers, and a third duty finder group.
"Even with the previously discussed measures in place," he wrote, "there remain several overpopulated worlds that may still be subject to peak-time login and character creation restrictions."
Yoshida said that if all goes well through the weekend, Final Fantasy XIV's
digital sales will resume. Future plans include relaxing restrictions on simultaneous logins and going forward with world transfers.
