Final Fantasy XI prepares to shut down its console service
Stand at attention, players, and pay your respects. Final Fantasy XI is marching down its final weeks of operation on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 before being shut down on March 31st. The good news is that this won’t mean the end of the game or those players’ experiences in FFXI, as long as they’re willing to migrate to the PC.
“Words cannot possible express how much we have appreciated your support over these many years,” Square Enix posted. “But this does not mean the end of Vana’diel, and we hope you will continue to join us on the Windows version of the game. Each month we will continue to bring you game updates, and I hope you will accompany us each step of the way.”
The studio also announced that it will be welcoming back old players to enjoy some free game time at the end of March.
