During Square Enix's fiscal report for the past 6 months, president Yoichi Wada said they're "quickly working on reforms" to MMO Final Fantasy XIV Online.

Right now the "current state" of the game warrants an extended "free trial period for all", said Square back in October. They've partnered with Shanda Games.

"We're quickly working on reforms," said boss Yoichi Wada during the conference. "We'd like to put our full power into regaining trust." Since its launch on September 21st for the Collector’s Edition, and 30th for standard copies, FFXIV has sold 630k units.

Those sales figures were counted only up until September 30th as that's when the fiscal quarter ended. In a bid to boost future sales for the MMO Square have partnered with Chinese online operator Shanda Games, which is a "first step" they say.

FFXIV Online hasn't met community expectations and so Square Enix have admitted their mistakes and extended the free trial period until more updates are released. Have you been playing Final Fantasy XIV Online, videogamer?
