Producer provides vague clues
Final Fantasy XIV producer Naoki Yoshida has hinted the MMORPG will continue after Endwalker. As the latest expansion, Endwalker will conclude the storyline that began in A Realm Reborn, but its’ post launch updates will begin a new story arc.
Asked in an interview with PC Gamer, Yoshida had this explanation:
"There are areas within planet Hydaelyn where we haven't explored yet. There are continents that have yet to be discovered, areas that have yet to be explored. There's possibilities there. And with the story of Shadowbringers, we learned that the Crystal Tower acts as a portal not just to the distant Realms, including The First and those that have been divided by the Sundered, but it can also allow us to travel in time as well so we can go back to the past and future as well. So there's still a lot of possibilities left."
Before No Man’s Sky and Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy XIV was the infamous game beset with a disastrous launch in 2010. Former Dragon Quest director Yoshida was assigned by Square Enix to save the game by taking over development in late 2010, Yoshida rebuilt the game virtually entirely, in which the end result was the game's remake in 2013 titled Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Since then, the MMORPG has had a remarkable turnaround going eight years strong with numerous expansions to the game.
Where do you all speculate the story of the game will go?
