In a press release, Square has announced that the PC version of its PlayStation 2 online RPG, Final Fantasy XI, will be released late in the current fiscal year. The problems with the PlayOnline servers after the official launch of the service and FFXI at May 16th have cost the company between 80 and 100 million Yen (between $643,000 and $804,000 USD). Currently there are 50,000 users registered.
Furthermore, the company shed some more light on its development plans for the current fiscal year: Two RPGs as well as one action game will be released for PlayStation 2, two GameBoy Advance games (one of them being the previously announced Final Fantasy Tactics port), as well as Front Mission for WonderSwan Color. Overall Square hopes to sell 3.6 million copies of software in Japan during the next fiscal year.
