Mizuki Ito has posted a letter on the Final Fantasy XI site that informs the community that he is leaving the game to pursue a new project at Square Enix.

As announced a year ago and periodically since then, both the XBox 360 and PlayStation 2 versions of Final Fantasy XI will end service at 7:00 am Pacific / 10:00 am Eastern today, Thursday, March 31st.

Square Enix is sending out emails to players to remind them of the forthcoming closure of Final Fantasy XI on March 31, 2016 for both PlayStation 2 and XBox.
As the inevitable road to March 2016 when Square Enix will shutter the doors of Final Fantasy XI for consoles stretches ahead, long time players and fans have one last chance to bid the beloved MMO adieu. Today marks the release of the final story arc of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel that brings FFXI on consoles to an end, though the PC version will continue to run.
