Original story: As many may already know, Square Enix has delayed the opening of the Final Fantasy XIV Online beta.

This had been scheduled to start today but has been postponed because of a "critical issue" with the client software, the official website explained.

When the doors will open now is unknown. We're told only that Square Enix is in "the final stages of preparation", and that a "new schedule will be released at a later date".

Final Fantasy XIV will be released for PC on 30th September, although buyers of the Special Edition can enter the world eight days earlier on 22nd September.

Eurogamer's impressions of the Final Fantasy XIV beta were published this morning.
