Final Fantasy XIV (ファイナルファンタジーXIV), previously codenamed Rapture (ラプチャー), was first mentioned in August 2005, when Square Enix announced they had begun working on a new MMORPG, but neither confirmed nor denied that it was a sequel to Final Fantasy XI, or that it was Final Fantasy-related. Hiromichi Tanaka, producer of the MMORPG Final Fantasy XI, stated in April 2006 that developers are working to make Rapture a worldwide release. He announced in February 2007 that the game was being developed for the Xbox 360 and for PCs running the Windows Vista operating system. He also stated that it might also be brought to the PlayStation 3. Square Enix announced at GDC 2008 that the new MMO will indeed target the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows operating system, and hinted that Mac and Linux clients are not out of question. The game will utilize the Square Enix created graphics engine called Crystal Tools and is being developed by the same team working on Square's current MMO title, Final Fantasy XI. This was later changed upon the decision to re-release the game as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Xbox 360 support was dropped, but a PlayStation 4 version was announced to be in development.
