Ubisoft to distribute FFXI in Europe

Ubisoft announces that it will distribute the PC version of Square Enix's massively multiplayer online role-playing game in Europe later this year.


Ubisoft announced that it has signed a European distribution agreement with Square Enix for the PC version of Final Fantasy XI. Currently scheduled for release in September, the European version of Final Fantasy XI will include the original game as well as its subsequent Rise of Zilart and Chains of Promathia expansion packs.

"We are very honored that once again Square Enix trusts Ubisoft's strengths in distribution for their new Final Fantasy episode and thus capitalizes on our existing partnership," said Alain Corre, Ubisoft's managing director for Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. "This proves our mutual confidence and joint dedication to bringing an ever-greater range of quality titles to the PAL market. Final Fantasy is one of the most famous franchises in the world of video games and with over 500,000 online subscribers, FFXI can rely on a strong brand to smoothly continue the legend online."

Final Fantasy XI has been available in both Japan and North America since the latter part of last year. The Chains of Promathia expansion pack being bundled with the European version of the game in September is also scheduled for release in Japan and North America at that time.
