According to the new producer of Final Fantasy 11, Yoji Fujito, the development team for the long-standing MMORPG has been scaled down to give its members a chance to explore other opportunities in their careers as developers.
This means that the game is essentially in maintenance mode now with fewer people working on it.
Why is the First Final Fantasy going haywire?
Square Enix has made the decision to slow down development on Final Fantasy 11, as they don’t want to limit their talented developers to working solely on a game with “decades-old technology.”
This will provide the team with more leeway to work on other projects, while still keeping Final Fantasy 11 running smoothly. Fujito notes that while the scope of the version updates will become more compact, the focus will be on stabilizing the game’s operations environment for the medium and long term.

Shutting down might not be happening anytime
However, fans need not worry, as Fujito reassures them that the team commits to keeping the game enjoyable for its players.
As the team adjusts to this change, their dedication to providing an enjoyable experience for Final Fantasy 11 players remains unwavering. They invite fans to join them and their fellow adventurers in their collective enthusiasm for the game.
Moreover, you can also expect the producer to give his next word about Final Fantasy 11’s plans for the future live next week.
