You can catch the keynote for the July 2023 Fan Fest below. Other streams from the event will appear on YouTube as well throughout the day.

We will likely learn more at the Letter from the Producer Live Part LXXVIII with Naoki Yoshida and Toshio Murouchi. That will air at 10am PT/1pm ET/7pm CET on July 29, 2023.

Here’s the first trailer:

The last Final Fantasy XIV expansion to appear is Endwalker. It was announced at a February 2021 event. It launched the same year it was announced, showing up in December 2021 after being delayed out of November 2021. Spoilers aside, when we played it, it ended up offering a sense of closure for certain storylines.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and the expansion is in development for a Summer 2024 release. The 2023 Fan Festival will be held in Las Vegas between July 28-29, 2023. The full schedule for the event is online.
