Gamespot is reporting that Microsoft has decided to push the Japanese launch of its Xbox MMORPG back until winter 2004. The Japanese launch was originally scheduled for the spring, but the folks at Redmond have apparently chosen to take a little extra time to get the game right.
"Releasing the game in an incomplete state would be going against the expectations of the fans and the game industry," said Microsoft in a press release. "True Fantasy Live Online is being developed as the ultimate MMORPG on the Xbox Live. Because of that, there will be no compromise made in its development. We are working day and night to create a high quality game that takes full advantage of the Xbox live by using the latest technology."
