Square Enix just announced their GamesCom 2010 line-up, and included is FFXIV. Of note, they indicated that FFXIV will be “playable on the show floor.” It’s unclear whether they are again restricting it to media (like at E3), or whether it will be open to any attendee, but it’s nice to see that FFXIV will again feature prominently in Square’s showcase. Now we just hope that they decide to release some new information to coincide with the conference. GameCom starts on August 18.
EDIT: Also worth noting is that the press release states that there will be “an enclosed 50 seat cinema for [a] scheduled presentation of FINAL FANTASY XIV.” Again, somewhat unclear if by “presentation” they mean trailer or something else all-together.
