Originally planned for the end of this month, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalkerwho have favourited Square Enix MMORPGs largest expansion so far, will arrive a few weeks later on December 7th instead. That’s because director Naoki Yoshida and the rest of the development team want to release the new content without destroying the game.
Yoshida, a 17-year-old Square Enix veteran, wrote in the announcement the This is the first time he’s postponed something that had a known release date but was necessary given his ambitious goal End converter is.
“[W]We remained determined to tune in to the smallest nuances and make sure our lyrics cover the finest points in the vast and intricate story that spanned the past 11 years since the original FFXIV
the FFXIV Director continued:
At this rate, there was a greater risk that we would hit the release date without ensuring “stability” as a form of quality, and that’s why I decided to postpone the release at this point. Since we also expect major traffic jams in all game worlds, I did not think it would be right in this regard to publish the expansion without sufficient “stability”. I’m really sorry.
It’s an incredibly small delay, but Yoshida apologized deeply nonetheless, and even seemed to get tears in his eyes during a livestream break the news.
Square Enix too Preview more of what’s to come End converter and subsequent patches of the game by doing current live letter lasting several hours. Here is the new schedule for the upcoming content:
- December 3rd – Patch 6.0 and Endwalker Early Access go live.
- December 7th – End converter officially starts.
- December 21 – Patch 6.01 and a new Pandaemonium raid go live.
- January 4th – Patch 6.05 is released along with new gear, Allagan tombstones, and the ferocious version of the Pandaemonium Raid.
Yoshida also revealed new Viera hairstyles, changes to resource gathering and crafting, and a revamped spearfishing mini-game. Players don’t really need to time their tricks to harpoon fish. Also, more role quests are on the way.
FFXIV originally released in 2010 and was a complete disaster. However, Square Enix stuck with it and three years later released a relaunched version of the game called it A reborn empire. Dozens of patches and three major expansions later, the game is for most profitable of the company Final Fantasy ever. End converter is the highlight of this decade plus travel. I think the fans can wait a few more weeks for this.
