Final Fantasy XI Reboot officially canceled: say goodbye to mobile MMORPG

Final Fantasy XI Reboot officially canceled

Nexon and Square Enix have officially announced that the development of Final Fantasy XI Reboot, the Mobile MMORPG based on Final Fantasy XI Online, has been canceled. The game is no longer currently in development. The reasons behind this choice of the two companies were also revealed.

Square Enix explains that Final Fantasy XI Reboot did not reach the quality standards that fans would expect from a game in the Final Fantasy series. From a creative point of view, the project was therefore not adequate to the saga and both companies decided to finish the development and move the staff to other projects.

Final Fantasy XI Reboot had been announced back in March 2015 and should have been released in 2016. However, the game has suffered various delays and, despite having been shown briefly in 2016, the first real game screenshoot was not released before 2018. Today, March 2021, finally comes the confirmation that the project has been abandoned.

Final Fantasy XI Reboot should have brought Final Fantasy 11 to smartphones and mobile devices: this new adaptation should have optimized the game for mobile devices, creating an "immersive, responsive and dynamic" experience. Things clearly did not go as they should have.

The PC version is alive and well. One mod improves 240,000 textures.

Final Fantasy XI Reboot

Nexon has officially cancelled development on mobile MMORPG Final Fantasy XI Reboot, which was in joint development with Square Enix, confirmed.

Both companies determined that the game did not meet the quality standards expected by fans of the Final Fantasy series from a creative perspective, and agreed to reallocate development staff to other projects.

Final Fantasy XI R was announced in March 2015 and originally planned for release in 2016. While we got a first look at the game that year, the first direct-feed screenshots would not be released until May 2018.
