EU Data Center To Come Online This Fall

EU Data Center To Come Online This Fall - Final Fantasy XIV - MMORPG.com

In the latest Letter from the Producer Live, Final Fantasy XIV's Naoki Yoshida covered a huge variety of topics with regard to the game. Included in the Q&A is the news that the EU data center will be opening later this fall.

Q: Can you tell us about the progress of the European data center?

A: We’ve finished obtaining all of the server equipment, and we’re setting up both the data center and the FFXIV game servers for operation. After everything is set with the equipment, we will be installing all the server software and performing checks. At the latest we plan on beginning operations at the end of 2015, but at the earliest we might be able to start around Patch 3.1.

The number of European players has been increasing, and while there were those who were worried when looking at the number of PS3/PS4 package sales, with early access and the fact that you could play immediately, the number of digital version sales helped make it a top-selling PS4 title. Additionally, with the growth of players moving from PS3 to PS4 and PC, a large amount of free trials converting to full service, and a huge boost in PC players, we’re very far away from the conditions people were concerned about.

Other general topics include:

  • battle content
  • item-related news
  • crafting & gathering
  • housing
  • mounts
  • graphics
  • UI
You can read the full digest of the video event (and check out the video below) on the Final Fantasy XIV forum.
