Also, SE doesn't want FFXI players to quit that and play FFXIV. They want those players to play both games (as is evidenced by the special combo pricing model they offered for a while).

If, at some point, SE wanted to do an FFXI-2 and overhaul the engine, THAT'S when you want FFXI players to drop and play that one.


I don't think discount offers to play both games really work. It was tried with EQ and EQ2, but it still failed to convince most EQ players to stick with EQ2, most of whom happily ended their EQ2 sub.

For something like an engine overhaul, you'd do it WoW: Cataclysm style and force the revamp on everyone rather than split the populace with a sequel. A FFXI-2 works only as a complete replacement of FFXI-1, much like FFXIV 2.0 is completely replacing FFXIV 1.0.
