Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.4 will take players into 2021 where they can expect more announcements. Fans won’t have to wait long for a major announcement it seems…

Whatever these “cool things” Square has planned for their February reveal are, it won’t stop the Final Fantasy XIV community from furiously speculating over the game’s rumoured fourth expansion.

Square have delivered a new expansion every two years since the game’s launch with Heavensward in 2015, Stormblood in 2017, and Shadowbringers in 2019.
