Final Fantasy XIV Online: The MMO Is Coming Soon To Xbox Series! [VIDEO]

While Final Fantasy VII Remake, the FIRST part of the remake, hasn’t made it to Microsoft’s consoles yet, the rebooted and now popular MMO is at least making its way to Redmond’s hardware.


Unusual, but true: Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released for PlayStation 4 in April 2020, followed by a slightly expanded PlayStation 5 version (Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade) in June 2021, which will also be ported to PC by the end of the year. A PC port of Final Fantasy XVI is already in the works (release date unknown), and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is sure to appear on Steam at a later date. And yes, we didn’t mention Xbox for any of these titles, and for good reason: Sony probably paid Square Enix a pretty penny for them.

Final Fantasy XIV was originally going to be released on the Xbox 360, with the first version launching in 2010 and then shutting down in 2012, but at the time Square Enix and Microsoft couldn’t come to an agreement over Xbox Live. The Japanese company, of course, revived the MMO in August 2013, then called Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, which differed from the original concept. After PS3 and PC, PlayStation 4 (April 2014), macOS (June 2015) and PlayStation 5 (May 2021) also received Square Enix’s MMORPG, but so far the Xbox version has been delayed.

Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy XIV Online is coming to the Xbox line (but only to the Xbox line!). It’s already in open beta and the release date is March 21st. For those of you who are Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers, you’ll have access to the Starter Edition between March 21 and April 19, because remember, it’s a subscription game (like World of Warcraft).

The game will receive its fifth Dawntrail add-on this summer, so Square Enix is being persistent in its support…
