Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Column: A Realm Rising?
There are a lot of great things afoot for FFXIV fans. In the last month or so, we have seen the release of the beta roadmap, we have had the release of the Live Producer letter #V, and we have seen the FFXIV benchmark released. Along the way, FFXIV benefited from an extensive media tour. All things considered, FFXIV has generated a lot of buzz recently.
So, the question which arises is whether or not all the publicity is paying off? One way of looking at it is here at MMORPG.com where we can see that the average user score for FFXIV has risen a bit and it's currently one of the most anticipated upgoming titles. While that is promising, it's only an overview of our MMORPG readers and not necessarily reflective of the game's overall interest level.
