In the Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live Digest, patch 5.5 was just one of the major topics of discussion. The presentation from February 5th started off talking about the Endwalker reveal, but quickly transitioned into information regarding patch 5.5 and the new content players will experience.
Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida and Community Producer Toshio Murouchi spoke at length about Patch 5.5, which will be released in two separate parts. Part 1 will be released on April 13th, 2021, while Part 2 is scheduled to hit in May. The new main scenario quest, a new dungeon, job changes, and much more were detailed for the upcoming 5.5 patch.
