Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker Release Postponed


FINAL FANTASY XIV Producer & Director Naoki Yoshida wrote in an announcement that they have decided to postpone the release of Endwalker, FFXIV’s upcoming biggest expansion.

Yoshida’s regret about the postponement is evident in his post. He said that as he tried playing Endwalker as development nears its end, he couldn’t help but follow his urge to “further improve Endwalker’s quality, specifically because this expansion pack marks the first major culmination of events in FFXIV so far.”

He added that he and his team “remained firmly resolved to adjust down to the smallest nuances and ensure our writing covers even the finest points of the vast and intricate story that has spanned these past 11 years since the original FFXIV to ensure that everyone can fully enjoy their adventure in Endwalker. Unfortunately, the consequence of this was that we ended up in a situation where we cut into the time required for final quality assurance checks due to this time spent on additional improvements.”

The expansion was supposed to launch on November 23, but with the delay in place, its new release date is now December 7.
