Mobile games return after rare midday maintenance shutdownEdit
Didn't get your Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia or other mobile game fix Monday morning? Square Enix Bridge, the backbone network behind dozens of online games from Square Enix, revised its system in a four-hour maintenance window pre-announced on Friday. The outage occurred from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM PST (17:00-21:00 UTC), affecting a small number of titles. Further details were not released.
The company typically reserves large-scale maintenance projects for late-night hours, when workload is lightest.
