Final Fantasy XIV to be PS3/PC MMORPG

The successor to Final Fantasy XIII has been announced as an MMORPG sequel to the venerable Final Fantasy XI, for the PS3 and PC; the Xbox 360 is notably neglected…

You can see the usual gorgeous CG trailer below:

The CG is of course completely irrelevant to a MMORPG, but there is some gameplay footage interspersed.

The game is set for release sometime in 2010; the direction gameplay will take is not clear, but as it is a MMORPG great change seems unlikely.

The official site is now open, though lacking in anything more than the trailer at present.

It seems a new MMORPG cash cow is just what Square needs, since Final Fantasy XI, released in 2002, may still be clinging on but hardly looks likely to last much longer…
