The release date was revealed during the Fan Fest Tokyo 2024 keynote. The impending release date is quite soon and will offer players the final set of main scenario quests for the Endwalker expansion. It will conclude the story and introduce characters and elements from the upcoming expansion of Dawntrail.

The release date arrives on that day due to the development team taking about a week off after the end of Fan Fest. A 24-hour maintenance patch is planned before the release of Patch 6.55. Players should expect to be unable to access the game around January 15, 2024. Patch 6.55 will not only see the MSQ, but also an overhauling of the Japanese data centers.

We also already know some of the new content coming in Dawntrail, thanks to this keynote. The Pictomancer will be a new job, and the female Hrothgar appeared.

Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail releases for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC in Summer 2024. FFXIV Patch 6.55 Main Scenario Part 2 will release on January 16, 2024.
