Emergency Maintenances and Servers Upgrades are coming to FFXIV

As Final Fantasy XIV continues to face server issues the game's team just shared more details on the upgrades and maintenances coming

With just a few days since its release, the Final Fantasy XIV servers are still heavily impacted by the record number of players trying to access the game. With that in mind and the huge Semiconductor issue the team decided to share more about whats coming to resolve the current problems.

Lobby and Worlds Maintenances for FFXIV

Some players have been facing multiple errors during queue time, be it error 2002 or not and Square Enix worked on fixes for them. There will be two maintenances coming soon and while the details will be shared soon, here's the general idea of when it will happen:

  • Lobby maintenance (servers will not go down): As soon as possible and will last for 30 minutes. Connected players will still be able to play.
  • Worlds maintenance (servers will go down): Maintenance planned for December 8 for 4 hours where everybody will be logged out.

FFXIV Transforming Dev servers into playable servers

The game's team decided that they will swap the backup development servers to the public lobby servers raising the raise the maximum number of players in the queue to around 21,000. This will be done today without any maintenance needed.

FFXIV Addition of New Worlds

Lastly Yoshi-P explained how hard it would be to add new servers due to the actuel shortage. While Square Enix wish to add more it will need time for servers to be ready and they've been trying to get their hands on some for a while now. Here's Yoshi-P statement:

"Given the current situation, we anticipate that it may take several months or more to add new Worlds. I want to express my sincerest apologies to all of our players for the inconvenience this is causing. I appreciate your continued understanding and support regarding this matter."
