During last night’s Letter from the Producer Live, Final Fantasy XIV Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida announced that the latest expansion, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, has been delayed by two weeks. This comes off the heels of a massive influx of new players over the last few months, reworking Data Center capacities, and more. These two weeks will be used for quality assurance and preparation for launch, according to Yoshida. Here is a slide from the Live Letter, detailing dates for the expansion and the first raid tier for Endwalker. Yoshi-P also wrote a lengthy post on The Lodestone detailing his reasons for the delay.

Music is one of the most vital parts of any game to him; so even if the gameplay or story doesn't age well or hold up, the soundtrack can leave a positive impression. Games aside, he loves science fiction and fantasy films and has a knack for podcasts. Steven also lives with (maybe) never enough cats.
