During Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia's Press Conference 2013 today, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn beta will launch in Japan on February 22, 2014 on the PlayStation 4 console. February 22, 2014 is the same day that the PS4 launches in Japan.

Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn released worldwide on August 27 on PC and PlayStation 3.
