Final Fantasy 14 Endwalker delayed to December 2021

Thankfully, it's a short delay.

Final Fantasy 14 Endwalker has been delayed into December 2021, Square Enix has recently confirmed.

Thankfully, it’s only a short delay — the content, which was originally scheduled for 23 November, will now become available on 7 December instead.

“We sincerely apologise for postponing the release at the last minute on this occasion. Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker is both the latest expansion pack for the game and the one that will conclude the Hydaelyn and Zodiark saga spanning 11 years since the launch of the original FFXIV,” Producer Naoki Yoshida said in a statement.

“We will of course deliver a new adventure in FFXIV to follow on from Endwalker but, with the various struggles we experienced from the failure of the original FFXIV leading up to where we are now, I just couldn’t contain my desire to perfect Endwalker to the best of my ability,” he continued. “As a result, the time we spent on quality improvement exceeded our expectations and we ended up using our time allotted for debugging. On the other hand, as stability is crucial for an online game, I have taken the decision to postpone the release of the expansion pack for a fortnight in order to resecure the time for debugging that would arise as we wrap up development.”

A new trailer for the content was released at the same time; it’s below.

Final Fantasy 14 is currently available on Windows PC, PS4 and PS5.
