Sales of A Realm Reborn Temporarily Halted

August 28th, 2013 by Tony Garsow

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Throughout Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s Early Access phase and first day of launch, server stress has been put to the test to accommodate all the new players coming to Eorzea. So much so that many players (including myself) have had to wait for hours on end for a chance to log in to the game.

In order to bottleneck the wave of new players coming into the game, Square Enix is putting a temporary halt on digital copies of A Realm Reborn in hope of mitigating the day one stress of being unable to log in. Other MMORPGs launches like Guild Wars 2 have also resorted to this measure to relieve congestion, while others have staggered their launch dates.

In the meantime, the team has announced they will be making further upgrades to the NA/EU data center so that it is better equipped to handle peak login times around the globe — estimated to conclude early next week. Director/producer Naoki Yoshida delivered a tearful apology to frustrated players unable to play at launch.
