Sq. Enix will begin promoting Closing Fantasy XIV once more this month

Enix have not been bombed by the native mafioso, joined a murderous D&D cult, or found their dad is a serial killer and so they too have the serial killer genes (thanks, Riverdale!), they did discover such overwhelming success with Closing Fantasy XIV that they briefly stopped promoting the MMORPG.

The corporate have deliberate for yonks to develop their servers to fulfill calls for, however bumped into a typical downside: the worldwide {hardware} scarcity. They’re nonetheless wrestling with that, however Yoshida in the present day detailed their plans.

European servers are first due so as to add 4 new Worlds in July, cut up between the 2 information facilities. Then in summer time 2023, they plan to open an entire new European information heart with eight new Worlds. In North America, they plan to open a brand new information heart with 4 new Worlds in August 2022, then in summer time 2023 they plan so as to add one other 4 Worlds there.
