Why Final Fantasy XIV's reboot needed to keep the original name

Why Final Fantasy XIV's reboot needed to keep the original name

Has there ever been a comeback story as dramatic as Final Fantasy XIV's? Launched to disastrous results, the game was rebuilt and relaunched as "A Realm Reborn," essentially a brand new game with the Final Fantasy XIV moniker. So, why didn't Square Enix simply cut their losses and shed the name? Game director Naoki Yoshida said it was important to preserve faith in the Final Fantasy brand.

"Even if we were to, say, shut down this game within a year and put out the next Final Fantasy game, that would lose the trust, and it would completely disappoint all of our fans," he explained. "I'm sure there would be a lot of players who would say, 'I'm never going to play Final Fantasy again,' or 'I'm never going to buy a Square Enix game ever again.' I, too, am a fan of the Final Fantasy series. I would have said the same thing, too."
