Final Fantasy XIV Nominated for Multiple Awards

By Nightmare2022-12-02

Final Fantasy XIV had one of the worst game launches ever. Due to the game's unfinished state during its launch in 2010, the game was heavily criticized and Square Enix soon decided to shut down the game and all of its servers just after 2 years of its release. With Naoki Yoshida's leadership in the development team, Square Enix managed to do the impossible by rebooting the game as FFXIV: A Realm Reborn and completely turned the game around to make it one of the best MMORPGs ever made.


FFXIV Awards and Nominations


The newer direction of the game's story was loved and appreciated by many, even to this day, and the game is still the favorite of many even after 10 years of its launch. The game is still getting plenty of updates with major story updates and content additions and has one of the most alive communities in the gaming world. And this year, multiple game awards noticed this and decided to acknowledge this achievement by nominating FFXIV for multiple award categories across multiple award shows.
