Part and parcel with this change is the end of any refunds for the Mac client for those who purchased it and found its performance unsatisfactory. Refunds will be offered until February 21st, so it’s important to double-check the system requirements listed to make sure that your machine can run the client properly if you’re on the fence about requesting a refund. For those who are already playing the game on either PC or PlayStation, the biggest news is the usual update procedure for tomestones in the next patch.
Final Fantasy XIV launched its first expansion in the middle of last year, it also meant the launch of the game’s Mac client. Sadly, that didn’t work out nearly as well as the expansion launch; the client suffered from severe technical issues, so sales were discontinued and refunds were offered to those who had purchased the game. It’s taken about eight months, but players using more fruit-based operating systems can look forward to the client sales resuming on February 23rd.
