Just a bit of news: FFXIV Open Beta Postponed due to Critical Bugs

August 31, 2010

From the EU FFXIV Registration Page:

FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test, which is scheduled to begin at 02:00 (GMT) on Sept. 1, 2010, will be postponed due to a confirmation of critical bugs. New schedule will be released at a later date.

Along with the postponement of FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test, the issuing of registration code for FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test will be postponed as well. With the download of client software’s installer, it will be suspended at 02:00 (GMT) on Sept. 1, 2010.

I imagine a ragestorm will happen, but well, beta is meant to quash bugs. Better they find it now than later during release, which would mean post-release downtime and a worse PR hit.

    This seems awful late in the game to be identifying “critical bugs”. The CE release is due in 22 days, meaning the product would be shipping a few days before that. I have faith in Square-Enix to deliver a great product, though.

      I agree, it does seem like a bad time to find these bugs. Oh well, I’ve got the client downloading at home while at work, hopefully the beta will be back up soon.

        Er… I think they’re going to shut off the client download capability temporarily while they fix the bug. 😦

      I have the same reservations about how late this critical bug was found.

      I just hope everything turns out alright for launch.
