Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn continues to suffer with server congestion problems following its launch last week. 3 years after the failed launch of the original Final Fantasy XIV it appears Square Enix have drastically underestimated the popularity of the revival project. The game broke the world record for concurrent connections in an MMO game, not once but twice. Since then the developers have worked around the clock to address the login problems and their latest response includes a 10-hour maintenance period.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn's Director, Naoki Yoshida, already announced that a an extended downtime would be required in order to address the problems, but additional details were not released until today. The game will be offline on September 3rd from 5 PM PDT to 3 AM September 4th. The downtime will see Square Enix add an undisclosed number of new servers as well as adjustments to the Duty Finder.
