    Yeah the amount of FFXIV posts are insane .

    The only thing these businesses work on in between is how to make money.So a new expansion would fit the bill but I wouldn't be surprised if the top greedy execs are looking at some new form of f2p or maybe even some mobile version.

    OR just maybe out of nowhere they are going to announce a collaboration release of FFXI mobile and FFXIV.

    I mean, it's going to be an expansion because the next patch concludes everything from this expansion and post expansion content so I think it's pretty obvious what it will be lol.

    Correct, companies generally do look for ways to make money.

    It's going to be an expansion announcement, with the next patch and post-content from the core Shadowbringers expansion that's really the only surprise they can possibly have waiting for us. Probably that, and maybe some news on a crossover event or something.

    Lol @ all this announcing upcoming announcements. Everyone is doing this now just to stay relevant and talked about but I find it silly AF.

    Announcing the announcement for the roadmap to the roadmap. 

    The collective groans and eyerolls...

    Slow news day?

    I will be making an announcement later tonight. You can expect that my announcement will refer to an upcoming announcement.

    Shadow Bringers has been their best (most excellent) xpac since Heaven's Ward. It is silly to announce an announcement though. I guess they just want us to pay attention to them more?

    They are going to announce - "Final Fantasy - the final one - for real" and its sequel

    Maaaaybe a PS5 release announcement (I mean, it's already on the PS4 and has a huge playerbase so making it work on the PS5 wouldn't be too much of an issue) followed by maybe a new expansion?

    It's almost like FF14 is popular, right?

    SE could go F2P with the game and loose zero money on it, since they make a huge chunk of their money from that Brave Exvious (sp) game... and most of their devs are paid through the cash shop items from what I hear.

    :) that's silly. Just announce the announcement :)

    I wanted to like it, while playing through free trial I managed to finish main questline and next expansion. But I couldn't take it anymore. I was sick of it. I guess I don't have patience to sit and read through the walls of text anymore.

    I also wanted to get into FF14, but it feels so odd and not like an MMORPG at all. You have loading screens on everything. The city I started in was separated into a few sub-zones each with its own loading screen, it was very annoying to navigate considering it was a multi-level city with a very confusing and user-unfriendly design. The way you talk to quest giver NPCs is also very annoying - instead of getting a window with the whole quest text like in WoW, you get something that feels like a Japanese Visual Novel game where you see the portrait of the character and in a box below them 1 sentence and you have to click Next, Next, Next to have them say another sentence and a quest you'd take in another MMO for 1 second, here you waste 10-20 seconds just fighting with the stupid UI.

    Outside of town I tried to fight some monsters - the combat feels janky and clunky and the global cooldown thing makes it even worse.

    FF14 and BDO are the two MMOs I cannot understand why are remotely popular when they are so bad.

    Nah
    Tl:Dr. The only thi g that will ever get me to anythi g Sony or FF related back is if they announce shitting all The garbage game services down and start remaking games using passion and creativity instead of marketing data. Their best titles that got them k own come from that... It went to poop after new projects and ideas just chased "put a MOG here. Kids buy that by the millions. Sure it breaks more, but stupid fans will find great excuses to defend it, a'd majority of the population don't care, and no one has legal foot. So do it".
    Nah. Shut it down. Restart

    People have different tastes, so if you don't like the game there's plenty of other things in life to occupy your interests.
    For me, FFXIV is the best mmo I have played. The storyline alone, particularly in Shadowbringers, would put it at the top. Added to this is great community - I am on eu world and fully appreciate it may be different for other locations. Plenty of activities to do in the game, a great mix of solo, group and full raid party content.
    Long may it continue.

    Givne that FFXI still requires a monthly fee to play I doubt XIV is going to F2P
