No matter where you turn, Final Fantasy XIV is making headlines. The cross-platform MMO has seen a continued resurgence recently as new DLC and gaming's stop streamers breathe new life into the 11-year-old title.
On Sunday, July 11th, an influx of new players forced the hottest game on the market to simmer as servers reached maximum capacity. New players could not create a new character on any of FFXIV's 24 servers - the first time anything like this has ever happened.
On Monday, July 12th, Square Enix's store suffered a similar fate. The publisher halted sales of the game's Digital Edition - resulting in an unprecedented waitlist.
