FFXIV:ARR Beta Off Schedule With Phase 3 Starting In June

FFXIV Forums

Director/Producer Naoki Yoshida has taken to the official forums today to confirm that Phase 3 of the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn beta test will not begin until June. This goes against the previously released roadmap that had only one or two weeks between phase 2 and 3. The two phases will now have an entire month between them.

Producer/Director Yoshida here.

I’d like to thank everyone who checked out the Nico Nico Chokaigi 2, as well as all your thoughts and encouraging words! I was really happy to be able to talk with so many current and new players. I think it’s me who received the most motivation!!

While Beta phase 3 will begin early June, we will be kicking it off with a vast amount of material as well as a load of edits and adjustments based on feedback that we have received, so please try and hang in there for about a month. (I’d also like to release my next Producer Letter as soon as possible.)

Thanks again to everyone who showed up, to those who watched behind their monitors, and for all the comments!

    So depressing to hear, I was looking forward to phase 3 in the next couple weeks. But a month will go quickly. I blame handing in quest rewards! A lot of people wanted the items to simply be auto-turned-in. If they are fixing that then I blame that for the big hold up.
