'Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn' suspends digital downloads

By
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn digital downloads have been suspended due to high demand on servers.

Square's MMORPG, which launched for PS3 and PC yesterday, can still be purchased at retail, but digital sales have been halted as the company attempts to expand server capacity.

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play," reads a statement by Square Enix.

"As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play.

"We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."

The game has proved hugely popular leading up to launch, attracting more than one million users at beta.


Pre-order customers were granted access to the game on August 24, three days before yesterday's global launch.

The release of the game will be followed by the Final Fantasy XIV: Libra Eorzea companion app, which will be available on iOS devices next week.

Subscriptions start at £7.69, although customers who registered for the original Final Fantasy XIV will be able to play the game for free until September 9.
