FFXIV Housing Auto Demolition Resumes in January

FFXIV Housing Auto Demolition Resumes in January

People will once again need to make sure they regularly visit their FFXIV estates, as housing auto demolition will return. Square Enix announced that it will be back in patch 6.3. There’s no exact release date yet, so the current window for it is January 2023.

Square Enix also offered some details about what the counter will look like when FFXIV housing auto demolition will look like when it does resume. There are two categories of people. One is players that have been visiting their homes since demolition was suspended in December 2021. The other involves people who haven’t been back since December 5, 2021. Also, Square Enix will send email notifications to anyone with an auto-demolition that will happen within 10 days of the patch 6.3 maintenance and release. The Schedule Estate Demolition Timer in the Timers section will also update and show how many days you have left.

Whether it is a free company or private estate, as long as you visited at least once between the suspension start date and now, people will get more time. The inactivity timer will begin the day patch 6.3 launches. As long as you visit once every 30 days, you can maintain the home.

However, if someone didn’t visit their home between December 5, 2021 and the patch 6.3 maintenance, then they could soon lose their spot. Things will pick up where they left off. So if you had five days before your housing would be automatically demolished before things were suspended, when it resumes you will still have five days left.

As a reminder, Square Enix suspended FFXIV housing auto demolition after Endwalker launched. The goal was to ease congestion. In February 2022, it said it would resume the feature. However, it took about a year for it to return to the game.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC.
