In a new “Letter From the Producer” Q&A session, the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn development team once again took questions from players, and provided answers pertaining to a broad range of topics.
One of the questions was about when patches 2.38 and 2.4 will be released. The answer to that question was as follows:
A: We’re planning to release patch 2.38 around the time of Tokyo Game Show, so it’ll be in about one month. We have a lot planned for Patch 2.4, and the addition of a new job makes it that much tougher, but the development team is working as hard as possible to ensure that you won’t have to wait too long, so please hang in there.
In regards to details about patch 2.4, we’ll definitely be implementing Shiva. During the Letter LIVE today we’re sure to receive a lot of questions on a wide range of topics, and I think you might just get a few hints of what’s to come in 2.4. Additionally, we’re in the midst of the 14 hour live stream, and you never know when the camera might catch something. There’s also a lot of the development team here with us today, so they might be able to share something with us as well. We’re planning to begin releasing information on patch 2.4 around Tokyo Game Show, and we’ll continue to release information from that point onward.
Another interesting question was regarding the addition of Jobs aside from the Rogue and Ninja in patch 2.4. To this, the team replied, “For the 2.0 series, only the rogue and ninja in patch 2.4 will be added. Please wait for information to be released in the future regarding other roles. I’m thinking it will be around October 17th…”
