Final Fantasy 14 Producer Teases Important Date

With Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn approaching its planned mid 2013 release date, it’s only natural that we would start to get teased. Producer/Director Naoki Yoshida, in a recent post, tipped off Legacy players to mark the 7th of January on their calenders.

While he doesn’t say what will happen on that date, it’s easy to speculate that, with the closing of alpha testing, the next logical step would be some sort of beta. In this same post, Naoki Yoshida also left us with new lore:

“Dawn may banish the darkest night.
Yet ever shall primal desires burn.
Two swords shall vie to lay them low –
A blade born of light, and a blade forged of might.
Alas, man may entrust his fate unto but one.”

– From the journal of Louisoix Leveileur

Could this possibly be a hint as to what is to come on the 7th of January? I suppose we’ll just have to wait till then!
