Square Enix Still Workin' On That New MMO

Square Enix have a big MMO. It's called Final Fantasy XI. But FFXI is getting a little long in the tooth, so it's no surprise to hear Square Enix are still working on a successor.

Talk of the company's post-FFXI MMO has been around for years now, but during an address to investors last month, Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada re-affirmed that while Final Fantasy XI was still quite profitable for the company, it couldn't last forever.

Speaking of this "transition", Wada says that, as FFXI winds down, "the question is where do we go from here, and we are currently developing a post-FFXI flagship title". Interesting that he calls it a "flagship" title, suggesting that instead of just switching to a more casual-friendly MMO like the company's existing Nicotto Town, it'll be something more substantial.

Final Fantasy XIV, perhaps? It's not like that'd be without precedent...

Beat me to it. And S-E is so secretive... Sheesh there's little to no info about it. >_<



Never played XI. Played some other MMOs though. I will probably end up playing this new game.



Rapture is just the "working" name I think.



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

FFXI is my favorite MMO ever. I have tried plenty but I love FFXI. That being said, the only other square game I have enjoyed is FFT. So I am not a square fanboy by any means. I am very excited about their new MMO. But I heard about it like 3 years ago lol. I played FFXI on PS2, I will play this one on PS3. :D

I think you're right but still it's the only real name we can refer this game to... =_=
