Final Fantasy 11 Mobile Reboot Cancelled 6 Years After Announcement


Six years after it was announced, Final Fantasy XI Reboot, a mobile version of Square’s early 2000s MMORPG, has officially been cancelled.
The cancellation came as co-developers Square Enix and Nexon decided the mobile version didn’t meet the creative standards Final Fantasy fans have come to expect from the series, according to¬† (via Gematsu). The development team has reportedly been moved to other projects.
[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=every-ign-final-fantasy-game-review&captions=true”] Final Fantasy XI Reboot was announced in 2015 with a targeted 2016 release window. It was intended to optimize the MMORPG experience for smartphones by “improving party organizing systems, enriching solo-play functionality, improving battle functionality and enhancing in-game events and features,” according to the initial press release.
However, that 2016 release window came and went, and it wasn’t until 2018 that FFXI Reboot resurfaced through a series of screenshots posted to ResetEra. The screenshots, pulled from Nexon’s website at the time, showed a promising look at the mobile version’s progress, though no further development updates were given leading up to its cancellation three years later.
In other Final Fantasy news, Square recently released a Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade trailer showing off its PS5 improvements. The PS5 version of FF7R is out June 10, while the PS4 version is currently free for PS Plus subscribers.
