Naoki Yoshida Talks About Final Fantasy XIV’s 3rd Anniversary and Xbox One Port

August 22nd, 2016 by Chelsi


Three years ago on the 27th of August Square Enix did an amazing feat with the relaunch of the 14th mainline title of the series, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Online. Leading the game’s rise to massive success, Naoki Yoshida has sat down with MMORPG.com to look back at their achievements and what awaits in the future.

Yoshida once again attributes its success to the unyielding and open-minded support of the players and fans, and the development team and departments within Square Enix. Final Fantasy XIV is by far his most successful project in his career, and he is thankful for the continuous support and asks to look forward more on what is to come. He has pointed out that despite XIV being the first MMORPG ever to have a reboot, the amount of players who still gave it a chance was beyond their imagination. Yoshida claims that at the core of XIV‘s vision is the team’s strong relationship with the community and continuous effort in expanding it, while taking into consideration the emotional impact XIV 1.0‘s failure had on the first players. Another thing is finding the right balance in the game’s difficulty considering the aspects of high-level raid content and max-leveled job actions, ensuring the players’ enjoyment. The next expansion, 4.0, is currently well under development with the main scenario complete and its voice-over work about to begin. Yoshida teasingly hints to look out for the North American Fan Festival on October 14th for more announcements.

Meanwhile, Yoshida recently had a brief chat with DualShockers at Gamescom 2016, detailing what he has discussed with Microsoft regarding the possible port of Final Fantasy XIV to Xbox One. Yoshida explained that with Microsoft’s current regulations it will be difficult to make it possible. Both parties have not arrived to a final decision yet and are planning to have another meeting during Tokyo Game Show 2016 next month.
