May is the month of Final Fantasy XI’s anniversary, but the content that was meant to accompany it is going to have to wait a bit longer. Indeed, the monthly update that will arrive for the game in May is the bare minimum, without job changes or anything more than the usual rotation of Ambuscade content. And there’s a good reason for that, the same reason a lot of things have been delayed: because the team is working from home right now and had to adjust.
The plan is still to deliver a nice slice of anniversary content and get home development steaming along, but it has meant that the usual anniversary content will have to wait just a bit longer. Apologies are offered to fans, but it will no doubt be worth the wait. For now, prepare for the usual rotations and just settle in until the big update arrives soon.
