Eyes of the Lord
- Akihiko Matsui steps down as producer.
- Yoji Fujito steps in as replacement.
- Dev team is being scaled down so the devs can move to other departments and skill up and not stifle their careers.
- They will potentially work on FFXI again later.
- Strong focus on "long-term stability of operations" including server upgrades to enable the game to run if not indefinitely, a very long time.
