Square Enix released patch 6.1 – named Newfound Adventure – on April 12 and featured a new storyline which followed the events of the latest expansion Endwalker. The major update also included the long-awaited Myths of the Realm Alliance Raid – the first original raid series in a long time which revolves around the Twelve gods of Eorzea – a new PvP experience and duty called Crystalline Conflict, Ishgardian Housing, and more.

Since each major Final Fantasy 14 patch is released every few months, where more story content is also added, players shouldn’t expect 7.0 for a long while.

Elsewhere in the same interview, Yoshida also touched on Final Fantasy 14‘s previously announced land and animal management system, Island Sanctuary. According to the director, progress is going well and will still be launching with patch 6.2.

In other news, Naoki Yoshida has implemented a new list of rules to combat “uncooperative behaviour” in Final Fantasy 14‘s PvP.
