Issues before the official launch
The aforementioned delay was only in order to improve the stability of the game and to anticipate this situation, something that however seems not to have been avoided, having produced serious problems of player congestion. From the Japanese company they have in fact announced which are the busiest hours in each territory, speaking from 11:00 in the morning to 23:00 at night in the case of Europe.
The game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida, wanted to “thank the players for their understanding and cooperation so far”, detailing that the number of logins made during these days has exceeded the limit. At the same time, Yoshida ensures that Final Fantasy XIV players will receive compensation for the inconvenience in the form of 7 days of free play, effective from tomorrow, day 7, until next December 14.
In the official statement from Square Enix there are specific error codes, such as 2002 and 5006, derived from this very matter, while trying to access the new content, and caused during character selection due to server congestion. As expected, there have been many who have come to speak on social networks to protest this situation, which in turn caused Yoshida to apologize, who never hesitates to come to the fore to give explanations.
Endwalker will arrive for all players starting tomorrow, December 7, on all platforms on which Final Fantasy XIV is available: PS4, PS5 and PC.
