Online plans for Final Fantasy X nixed.

  In a recent announcement, Squaresoft has revealed that their much-anticipated Final Fantasy X, the premiere installment of the classic series to be released on the PlayStation 2, will not boast online gameplay, after all. In a further blow to the hopes of online RPG fans, Square announced that their online gameplay service, dubbed PlayOnline, will be delayed. The new date for actual online gameplay through the service has been rescheduled to winter of 2001 in Japan. The controversial Final Fantasy XI; Squaresoft's first RPG in the famed RPG line to be completely online, is set to begin testing by next year's winter, and the actual service is projected to launch in Japan by spring of 2002.

   A Square representative revealed some more news on the company's plans for the future, and this may come as a disappointment to Sony fans. The announcement involved Squaresoft's considerations of developing titles for other next-generation systems in addition to the PS2. The representative said, "We will make efforts in gathering information surrounding the next-generation gaming consoles other than the Sony PlayStation 2 and take necessary actions accordingly."
