Square Enix Pulls Mac Version of Final Fantasy XIV From Sale



Square Enix has announced it has pulled the Mac version of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn from sale and is offering consumers refunds for their purchase.

The game has been plagued by a number of technical issues on Mac, for which the game's director and producer, Naoki Yoshida, has apologized for over on the game's official forums.

"While the development and operations teams, as well as our entire company, were involved in this mistake, it was I who ultimately made the decision to release the Mac version under these circumstances and therefore bear sole responsibility, and I sincerely apologize to you all," Yoshida said.

"Because of this situation, many of you purchased a product which your Mac hardware could not run at even the minimum system requirements, resulting in insufficient performance, for which many of you have expressed your dissatisfaction. Had we provided accurate information beforehand, I know many of you would not have purchased the Mac version, which is why we decided to offer full refunds. Once again, I apologize."
