Final Fantasy XIV states more housing plots are on the way for patch 5.4

Back in March, Final Fantasy XIV’s developers turned off the housing demolition timers due to the ongoing global pandemic, so no one has to worry about logging on to the game to make sure a house isn’t demolished. This is a good thing, and it’s not changing soon. Unfortunately, it also means that inactive houses are not currently subject to any churn, which means that getting a house is even more difficult than normal… a situation hopefully addressed, at least in part, with the promise of more housing plots being added in the game’s next major patch.

While an exact number is not given, the small Twitter thread notes that more plots were already on the agenda, but the process of adding new hardware to servers has been slowed down by the aforementioned global pandemic. A full announcement is planned “soon,” but it seems clear that the team is working to address the game’s inequalities of housing and provide more spaces to hang your metaphorical hat.

servers go down for maintenance upgrade 1am – servers come up: 8:00am – i log on at 8:01am – all “new” housing was taken by 8:00:30 am.

…..i used to love this game – its such a wasted opportunity

If they can’t provide full housing for all, they need to move develop $$$ into other things rather than new housing items/activities which the majority of players can’t enjoy. At a minimum, give us a moogle patio so we can use outdoor items from our FC room or apartment.

Slapping in more static instances is a fig-leaf solution. XIV’s housing needs a ground up rethink.

I feel like it’s easier to get a house irl than it is in ff14

Hopefully with an initial period only allowing FC’s and migrating to fill those slots

Hopefully without the initial period so new players can get anything.

The trigger is ”increase in players” so migrating will just leave new players with nothing.

And about FC..people just create fake FCs to get house and third pary sell….

Ok, we still have bots but…better only bots.
