Square Enix’s Hiromichi Tanaka has admitted that the firm "would like to change everything" about Final Fantasy XIV, revealing that the only elements that he was truly happy with were the game’s storyline, cutscenes and the armoury system.
"Actually if you see the list of plans we have for the next version updates, we would like to change everything," said the game’s director Tanaka talking to VideoGamer.com.
"You will be able to expect quite a few changes to the game."
Is a total overhaul on the cards for Final Fantasy XIV, then? If so, that’ll be music to most people’s ears.
Final Fantasy XIV launched on PC back in September to huge criticism from critics and gamers alike, who criticised the game for its poor interface and badly designed quests. Many simply believe it was released in an unfinished state.
The backlash forced Square Enix to extend the game’s free 30-day trial period twice to encourage players to stick with it.
After the free trial period ends, players will have to pay £8.99 a month to continue playing.
A PlayStation 3 version of Final Fantasy XIV is due for release in March 2011.
