Fantastic: Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn available digitally again

Final Fantasy XIV - 04

have resumed digital sales of . Which is nice, considering that it’s been a few weeks since they stopped.

Digital sales of the MMO were halted after an unprecedented number of players wound up buying it and attempting to play it, which – in technical terms – led to the servers going KABLOOEY. Too many people trying to log on at once meant that the servers couldn’t really keep up, and this led to measures like server access being heavily limited. Which is not the sort of thing you want to have to do with your brand new MMO.

Now, however, digital sales are back. Square Enix have performed server maintenance, increased the number of servers worldwide, and raised both the capacity of players per World and the number of concurrent players. Things are apparently now working as intended.

Which seems reasonably accurate, since I haven’t had a problem logging in for over a week now.
