In an ongoing quest to never make a good, new, Final Fantasy game, Square Enix has announce they’re giving Final Fantasy XIV another go with an pseudo remake/expansion maybe? Check out the (non gameplay) trailer:
I brought this up a little while ago, but I think in needs repeating: Square Enix, it’s time to move on. First and foremost, I find it hard to imagine people actually wanting a Final Fantasy mmorpg. I don’t fault Square Enix for trying, but it feels very awkward for a story heavy series of games. This leads me to to my second point, prior to Final Fantasy X (I think there might have been a cell phone game for VII but whatever), each game was nice and self contained, no sequels, no spinoffs, just the game. It either worked or it didn’t, that was that. Please, return to this policy. Just focus on making a good rpg and don’t worry about what comes after.
