Today has been a day for Square Enix and its Final Fantasy XIV team. Patch 5.4 was detailed and given a launch date, but it's not the only thing the MMO developers have been working on as the studio teased a major announcement coming in early 2021.
The Final Fantasy XIV Announcement Showcase was teased during this morning's Letter from the Producer LIVE, and is taking place next year in February. Given that the global FanFests were canceled and we know we're at the end of the Shadowbringers storyline, it's not that farfetched to speculate this could be the announcement of a fourth expansion coming down the road. However Square Enix is mum on the exact details.
