The publisher had only confirmed the open beta for the MMO will launch in "early September" earlier this week.

Final Fantasy XIV launches at the end of next month, with early access to players who get the collector's edition on September 22.

Tanaka also told VG247 at gamescom last week discussions with Microsoft are still ongoing about bringing the game to 360.
