Final Fantasy 14 sales halted until servers can be expanded

Wednesday, 28th August 2013 06:31 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Square Enix has halted sales of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn on its launch day following very high demand on servers.

“Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play,” Square Enix announced via Facebook.

“As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days.”

A Realm Reborn is still available in-store, on PC and PlayStation 3.

Demand for the rebuilt MMORPG was high even before launch, with character creation being halted even during an early access period.

Thanks, Kotaku.

    Reminds me of Guild Wars 2, they had the same problem. I hope they can fix this quickly, I really want to play with a friend on my server.

    That’s lucky because I picked it up yesterday evening and installed it, haven’t had a chance to play it yet (thanks to post-bank holiday hair of the dog).
