Who's ready to get the Final Fantasy XIV open beta party started? Not Square Enix.
The open beta for Final Fantasy XIV, due to kick off today at 7pm Pacific, has been postponed indefinitely while Square Enix irons out some critical bugs that cropped up at the last minute.
FINAL FANTASY XIV Open Beta Test, which is scheduled to begin at 19:00 (PDT) on Aug. 31, 2010, will be postponed due to a confirmation of critical bugs. New schedule will be releaseｄ at a later date.
That's not a good sign for a game that's supposed to launch on September 22 for Collector's Edition purchasers (September 30 for regular customers). If critical bugs can pop up this late in the game, I'm not looking forward to trying to play this game at launch.
Along with the delay of the open beta, Square Enix is also halting the issuance of new beta codes and taking down the beta client installer later this evening.
Anyone sharing my worries?
