Wada: Final Fantasy XIV “Greatly Damaged” Franchise’s Brand

During a Square Enix press conference today CEO Yoichi Wada addressed the shortcomings of the company’s poorly received MMO, Final Fantasy XIV.


“The Final Fantasy brand has been greatly damaged," said Wada regarding Final Fantasy XIV.


Since the game’s release in September 2011, the company has been trying to fix problems with the game. The title had problems right out of the gate, including crashes and subpar performance.


"We'll continue with our reform work, which basically amounts to fully redoing the game, and hope to revive the FFXIV that should have been released,” Wada explained. There’s still no word on the delayed PlayStation 3 version of the game.
