Final Fantasy XIV PS3 reveal next month, teases producer

Expect screens of the AWOL console version mid-October

Square Enix has said we'll be treated to our first glimpse of the elusive PS3 version of Final Fantasy XIV next month.


We were surprised when Square promised the PS3 version for a 2012 release (hell, we're shocked its still coming at all), and now producer Naoki Yoshida has said the first PS3 screenshots and info for the revived MMO, now subtitled 'A Realm Reborn', will be released next month.

"We'll be releasing the initial information [on the PS3 version] around mid-October," Yoshida told fans in a recent online chat session. "I believe we'll have screenshots first, but please hang in there," he added (thanks Siliconera).

According to its announcement last year, Square will release the PS3 version of FFXIV between October and December of 2012. To coincide with the release there will be a play-for-free period for the game as well as a mandatory client update for PC users.
