Final Fantasy XI Mobile is Canceled, Long Live FFXI

Final Fantasy XI's mobile version is no more, but Final Fantasy XI on console and PC has even more updates in store

Square Enix has worked wonders with Final Fantasy XI over the years, adding new updates to the almost 20-year-old game and even working on a mobile port called Final Fantasy XI R with Nexon. Even wonders have a limit, though, as Final Fantasy XI's mobile port is canceled. (translated by Gematsu) said Square Enix and Nexon canceled FFXI on mobile after seeing it "did not meet the quality standards expected by fans of the Final Fantasy series from a creative perspective."

The meaning of that statement is a bit up for grabs, since neither developer offered further description or any new screenshots. The report also said staff working on FFXI mobile have been moved to other projects.

Anyone still playing FFXI elsewhere has more content to look forward to in March, however. The Voracious Resurgence storyline continues with new quests and rewards, there's a new Ambuscade challenge revolving around leech monsters, and a new Odyssey monster to fight in Sheol called Gaol. That's in addition to daily login bonuses for the month and more.

Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
