Many are waiting quite eagerly for the beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn and Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida promised a few days ago that the start date would be announced during the next installment of the Letter from the Producer Live videocast.
Today Square Enix announced that the livecast will be aired on Friday February the 22nd at 3:00 AM PST/11:00 AM GMT. During the show Yoshida himself will answer questions from the fans on the upcoming beta and the official release of the game.
Questions can be submitted in advance for those that have access to the official forums on this thread, while during the event more questions will be picked directly from twitter and will have to be directed @FF_XIV_EN with the hashtag #XIVLive.
An important reminder was given to those that took part in the Alpha testing of the game in December: the NDA is still in effect, so the questions submitted should not include any specific information on it, like test specifications, technical details, developer comments, and so forth.
Better prepare some coffee, because for many the show is gonna come at an ungodly hour, yet I’m quite sure most will still refuse to heed the call of their warm beds in order to listen.
