Join Gaming Leaders for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming Summit, with GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 This coming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event.
Since its endwalker expansion began in December, Final Fantasy XIV has been popular. In fact, it is very popular. Many players got so caught up in the game that they overtook MMO’s servers, causing long queues and disconnections for those hoping to log in.
To counter this, Square Enix actually stopped selling the game. Today, it announced that people will be able to purchase FFXIV again from January 25th.
Square Enix also announced other measures that will help eliminate server congestion. The new Osh data center will also open on January 25. This will allow players to play more local servers in and around Australia and help spread the game’s population. Square Enix is also planning to expand its North American and European data centers, starting this summer.
Also, from January 26, players will once again be able to transfer their characters to different servers. The data center travel system, which Square Enix also delayed due to game congestion, is coming into the future patch.
