FINAL FANTASY XIV

FINAL FANTASY XIV is a Japanese MMORPG part of the long-running FINAL FANTASY franchise. It is the second MMO to be released as the main entry (the first being FINAL FANTASY XI in 2002) in the series and one of the most relevant games of its generation. Its first release in 2010 was met with heavy criticism from fans and critics alike who noted the poor performance, lack of content, and gigantic maps built with repeatable assets. In an attempt to address these complaints, Square Enix put another developing team in charge of the MMO, who later found out the game’s problems were deeply related to its engine, the same Crystal Tools that powers the installments in the FINAL FANTASY XIII trilogy. Led by Naoki Yoshida (also known as Yoshi-P), the team suggested a redevelopment of FINAL FANTASY XIV in a completely new engine built to accommodate an MMORPG. A year after FINAL FANTASY XIV’s shut down, the title was re-released as FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn and has ever since been praised by fans and critics.
