Happy Birthday, Final Fantasy XIV! Celebrate Three Years in Eorzea with 14-Hour Developer Broadcast

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn celebrating three year anniversary with live stream news, developer talks, and more.

It has been nearly three years since Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launched for PlayStation 3 and Windows. The popular MMO has been celebrating its continued success every year on its launch date anniversary of August 27th. This year is no different. Much like last year, the developers of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be celebrating the anniversary with a 14-Hour live stream event that anyone can watch.

The scheduled start time for the broadcast is Friday, August 26, 2016, at 8:00 p.m. (PDT) and will feature content ranging from sneak peaks of the next content patch for Final Fantasy XIV to the Producer/Director, Naoki Yoshida, personally visiting a random server live on stream. There will also be a concurrent event streamed alongside the main event which will star Final Fantasy XIV Assistant Director, Hiroshi Takai. An important footnote included in the announcement states, however, that the event will only be available with Japanese audio. The schedule for the event has been posted, which you may view below.
