  • Final Fantasy XIV director Naoki Yoshida claims he's still enthusiastic about bringing the MMORPG to Nintendo's Switch and Microsoft's Xbox One, and contains had meetings with FFXIV Gil executives from your respective platform holders for making it happen.
    Speaking to Kotaku, Yoshida said he "would fascination with as many players being on FFXIV as possible" and "conversations have already been had with Phil Spencer of Microsoft, as well as the upper management teams of Nintendo.
    "However, Yoshida states he wants both companies to fulfill one major condition: "the sport has to contain the capability of cross-platform play.
    " One with the issues Yoshida noted, however, was a large number of companies don't consider how updates towards the way online services are operated and regulated may affect an MMORPG.
    "Those can be a hurdle if we consider operating FFXIV for the extended stretch of time," he explained. "So when I speak to those first-party companies, I question them, 'Do you contain the capability to plan for that, do you develop the resolve that you simply're going to produce sure to assume responsibilty and care for those, are you experiencing that willingness?'"If were able to arrive at some sort of agreement, a handshake as it were, or if it can do end up being that unfortunately you can't perform a handshake with Final Fantasy XIV, in any event we'll make sure to speak with our players. But we have now been tenacious--we've been holding at it and also be persistent about our conversations.
    "Getting Sony to look at up its online services to Xbox and Nintendo customers could be an insurmountable obstacle for Yoshida and Square Enix, however. Sony has previously opted never to support cross-platform online player for Rocket League and, lately, Minecraft.

    During E3 2017, Nintendo and Microsoft announced that Rocket League and Minecraft can be cross-play compatible between Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC players. This has meant, currently, Sony's PlayStation will be the only platform not supporting cross-play for all those games. You can understand more about why Sony isn't supporting cross-play here.
    Square Enix recently launched Stormblood, a different expansion for Final Fantasy XIV. However, the sport has been plagued with network issues which, according towards the Japanese company, continues to be caused by DDoS attacks from third-parties.
