Square Enix drops the ball once again as they have been forced to stop selling digital copies (not hard copies) of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn due to not having enough servers live to fulfill the influx of new players to the game. Although this is sort of a good problem to have, it’s not necessarily the best way to solve it.
Players who already have a copy of the game have mostly been able to play without a problem, but there have been some reports of gamers being unable to get into servers. It would appear Square Enix is at least taking this seriously, and will not allow anybody to buy the game through digital stores again until they have more servers up and running. One could argue that this was predictable, and as with all online games was mainly a failure to prepare by the publisher giant best known for the Final Fantasy franchise and their publishing of revived western series Tomb Raider.
**UPDATE: We have word that more servers will likely be up by the start of next week and the game should be for sale digitally again at that time. Until then, Keep it real, keep it gaming…**
