Today Square Enix announced that the 14-hour livestream dedicated to Final Fantasy XIV planned for February 6 has been postponed.
The reason given is the state of emergency declared by the Japanese government due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Square Enix has opted to hold the livestream at a later date when everyone can enjoy it with peace of mind.
The 62nd Letter from the Producer Live broadcast which was scheduled to be included in the livestream will still happen.
It’s still going to be a big day for Final Fantasy XIV fans, as the news presentation planned for the same day will also be hosted regularly.
Easy speculation from the fans (and yours truly) indicates that we may hear about the new expansion that should come around the summer.
In the meanwhile, players are enjoying the completion of the Ishgardian Restoration and its rewards thanks to the latest 5.41 update.
If I was a betting man, my money would be on Ishgard’s housing wards being included in the rumored expansion mentioned above. It’d likely be an rather safe bet.
