Temporary Suspension of Square Enix MMO's due to Earthquake

Square-Enix made an official post yesterday regarding the status of their service which is seeing a temporary suspension in the aftermath of the Earthquake and Tsunami natural disasters which occurred on Friday.

Our thoughts are with all those directly affected by this catastrophe. Read on for the official statement.

"Due to the continuous earthquakes occurring in the eastern regions of Japan since Mar. 11, 2011, the power companies in Japan have encouraged everyone to cooperate by conserving as much energy as possible as it is feared there will not be enough power supply. Based on the current situation, we have decided to shut down the game servers temporarily, and therefore to suspend services of Final Fantasy XIV, ffxiv gil, and PlayOnline temporarily.

The services will be temporarily suspended for at least a week starting on Mar. 13, 2011 3:00 (PDT). We will provide an update regarding the reinstatement of the service as additional information becomes available. In connection with the temporary suspension of services, players will not be billed for any PlayOnline service throughout the April billing cycle. Additional information regarding this matter will also be posted as it becomes available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding of this unusual situations
