The next letter from Final Fantasy XIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida is taking place on February 5th at 10:00 p.m. EST. If the timing on that sounds at least somewhat familiar, congratulations! You remember that this is the same date as the game’s announcement showcase that technically is announcing something as of yet unknown but we all know is going to be announcing the game’s next expansion, but the announcement showcase takes place an hour and a half beforehand. The letter, meanwhile, is covering the first preview of patch 5.5, which in and of itself suggests what we’re going to be learning about in the announcement showcase just before.
You know, if we didn’t all know already that it’s going to be an announcement of the next expansion. Ahem.
Well done to everyone who participated! 🎉 pic.twitter.com/LyrHTvM87p
