FFXIV Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida offered another update on the housing lottery repair timeline. The new estimate suggests that maintenance and restoration of the process should come on May 16, 2022. Until then, the FFXIV real estate market is suspended.
Yoshida first offered a timeline of what was going on back on April 19, 2022. As a reminder, after the first lottery some people were unable to buy certain plots. Some places ended up displaying messages like, “The winning number is… 0. May you have better luck next time.” In other instances, the error message reported that no one submitted a bid on the plot at all. Yoshida noted that the results weren’t getting to servers, and using the correct data they had to fix it.
The latest FFXIV housing lottery update confirmed that the fixes are verified and working. The next step is to implement the correct lottery data. Yoshida noted the latest data restoration could take eight days.
After that is done, FFXIV maintenance will take place for up to 10 hours on May 16, 2022. When it is finished, the real estate market suspension will be lifted. The latest announcement also concluded with another apology for the current state of affairs.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The FFXIV housing lottery fix maintenance will be held on May 16, 2022.
