The second day of Final Fantasy Fan Fest 2021 kicked off with a Live Letter From the Producer, the regularly scheduled livestream that outlines each major update to Final Fantasy XIV. Director and producer Naoki Yoshida led the presentation and detailed what’s coming to patch 5.55 with regards to the new main story quests, the Save the Queen questline, the full PS5 version of the game, and much more. Lead story designer Natsuko Ishikawa also joined the presentation to discuss her work in creating FFXIV’s narrative.
Patch 5.55 is set to go live on May 25 and it’ll be the last major update leading into the upcoming Endwalker expansion. Additionally, the PS5 version of the game will officially go into service on May 25–this updated version of the game went into live beta in April and has been playable ever since for owners of the PS4 version playing on PS5,
