Square Enix shut down the servers for Final Fantasy XIV over the weekend, marking the "end of an era," according to the lengthy adieu above.

Said adieu also serves as a trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the reboot to the rather poorly received MMO. Square Enix has reportedly promised to fix what ails it on both PS3 and PC by 2013.

Here's the official description:

Witness the end of an era as the Eorzean Alliance clashes with the Garlean Empire in a bid to deliver the realm from certain destruction.

The saga will continue in FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn. 

Are you sad to see FFXIV shut down so soon after its release? Are you looking forward to the realm being reborn?
