Final Fantasy 14 is finally coming to Xbox! Final Fantasy 14’s Xbox version was recently announced at the FF14 Fan Fest held in Las Vegas earlier today. It is set to go live as an open beta in Spring 2024.
Here are the details regarding the Xbox version of FF14:
FF14 will be coming to Xbox Series X|S at some point in Spring 2024 in the middle of the game’s 6.5 patch update. It will be a digital-only release, which means no game discs or physical copies, and will also come with optimizations for the platform. 4K will also be supported for those playing on Xbox Series X. The game will support crossplay with players on PC and on the PS4/PS5, so you’ll still be able to play and raid with your old friends after switching platforms, if that’s what you intend on doing.
The announcement was made alongside Xbox’s own CEO, Phil Spencer, who attended the FF14 Fan Fest as a surprise guest. Spencer shared a few words regarding FF14 director Naoki Yoshida and his team at Creative Business Unit 3.
What I really appreciate about you and your team is you put the player at the center of everything that you do. It couldn’t be more clear than watching your presentation today. At Xbox, we share a very similar spirit when it comes to our players.
While there’s no concrete release date just yet, the Xbox version of the game arrives just before the launch of FF14’s next expansion, Dawntrail, so it should give players enough time to get a feel for the controls before the update arrives.
