If you recall, Final Fantasy XIV died a slow and painful death. Panned by critics and fans alike for generally having poor game design choices in nearly all areas. Rather than denying any issues, Square-Enix has issued several public apologies acknowledging how bad FFXIV was and set out to fix just about everything.
Well the servers for FFXIV were shut down very recently to make way for its reincarnation Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. A fitting title, the game was completely overhauled into something people will hopefully actually enjoy.
The game will undergo Alpha in 2012 and is slated for a 2013 release for both PC and PS3.
