Fans of the Final Fantasy franchise have been waiting a good amount of time to check out the latest online chapter in the saga, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Unfortunately, due to server issues, they’re going to be waiting a little bit longer.
Several players who plunked down money for the digital edition of the game found it impossible to log in to their Square Enix accounts in order to play. As a result, the company has yanked the digital version, in an effort to get the servers going to full speed again. Apparently, the demand was rather high for the game – more than Square expected.
In a note on the game’s official Facebook page, Square Enix stated that the response to the game was “overwhelmingly positive,” resulting in “extremely long wait times.”
“As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play,” said a Square Enix rep.
Server issues should be fixed within the next few days.
