Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn release date narrowed

PS3 beta test due in June, with cross-platform play.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn will be released this summer for PC and PlayStation 3, developer Square Enix has confirmed.

The relaunched MMO is set to enter a third round of closed beta testing in June, which will include PS3 players for the first time.

The game's cross-platform functionality will allow players on both formats to explore the game's world together.

Two new city states, Ul'dah and Limsa Lominsa, will also be opened up.

You can sign up for the closed beta over on Square Enix's website.

Final Fantasy 14 producer Naoki Yoshida previously told Eurogamer that the game's rebirth as A Realm Reborn was necessary to help regain gamer's trust in the Final Fantasy brand.

"Losing your fans' trust is very easy thing to do. Regaining it is very hard," Yoshida said. "We believe Final Fantasy 14 is a starting point, and that players joining us will think 'oh wow, this is great, I'll see what they can do with Final Fantasy 15 or 16'.
