Square Enix boss Yoichi Wada will put on his armor to take on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn players in a planned PvP event, producer and director Naoki Yoshida has revealed, sadly he also announced news of a delay.
In a recent Q&A session about the upcoming reboot Yoshida revealed that a PvP event is planned where players can take on various members of the development team. “There are multiple people from the development team who put a lot of thought into the PvP system and we currently do have plans to implement a system where players will be able to fight against the development team. As an additional note, we have plans for players to be able to fight Wada for an event,” he said.
He also promised that an updated road map for the game’s release will be made available towards the end of this month, but did reveal that the team is currently two months behind schedule.
“Currently we are about two months and two weeks behind schedule compared to the road map that was released on October 14,” he revealed. “The main reason of the delay is the vast amount of adjustments that needed to be taken care of two months ago. We’re starting to prepare for the Beta Test which we would like to implement at the end of January or early February. However, we are doing our best to make it so we can have the servers open 24 hours to allow for more and more players to participate in the Alpha Test, so please hang in there a bit longer for finalized details.”
