Square Enix schedules the end of Final Fantasy XIV


...and the start of A Realm Reborn

Final Fantasy XIV's grand finale comes as the Sevent Umbral Era descends on Eorzea, Square Enix said this morning. This will mark the end of Final Fantasy XIV's story and the beginning of upcoming game A Realm Reborn. 

Here's how it'll go down: Character data from the current version will be saved for the last time on Halloween, October 31. All the worlds will come down by midnight on November 11 Pacific. That saved character data will be transferred to A Realm Reborn.

Speaking of, Square Enix has kicked off the first of four alpha testing phases for A Realm Reborn. All with an active Final Fantasy XIV account are invited to become a tester. Find the application for this gig here.

I do not have an existing account, but am already looking forward to trying out Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. What about you?
