And just when it looked like VanaFest 2012 was going to have no bombshell...


At the end of VanaFest 2012, Hiromichi Tanaka, the much-maligned Producer of Final Fantasy XI and former Producer of Final Fantasy XIV, retired from Square-Enix, citing health issues.  Tanaka's only 50, so that's not a good sign, for one of a couple of reasons.

I certainly would not want it to be fatal health issues, but the fact is that the MMO Division has suffered under Tanaka for a number of years now.

Akihiko Matsui will be the new director of Final Fantasy XI.
