Final Fantasy 14 will return to sale soon as director Yoshida chides abusive fans

Final Fantasy 14 had quite the 2021, with record player numbers and interest culminating in the winter launch of Endwalker: An expansion that proved so successful Square Enix had to take the remarkable step of removing the game from sale. In fact it’s now been a month and you still can’t buy it.

Producer and director Naoki Yoshida has written a new blogpost addressing what’s been going on, and explaining what the developers are doing about it: The short version is, opening up a tonne of new servers across the globe. Over the next year there will be new data centers dedicated to the game opening in Europe, Japan, North America and Oceania, which Yoshida believes will “fundamentally address the problem.” Some are basically ready to go, while others are scheduled for later in the year.
