Final Fantasy 14 came into this world kicking and screaming late last year, riding a wave of negative reactions. The MMO was almost universally deemed to be broken and incomplete, prompting publisher Square Enix to issue public apologies and, ultimately, go free-to-play while the kinks were worked out.
Enter Final Fantasy 14 Version 2.0. The reworked game will be arriving on Windows PCs soon, Square Enix confirmed in a website update from company CEO Yoichi Wada. The free play switch will be turned off "between late November and early December 2011" and subscriptions will return. Wada makes no mention of the still-absent PlayStation 3 version, but one thing at a time. First the game needs to actually... you know... work.
