Final Fantasy 14’s director says that the next expansion’s story is already underway

Director of Final Fantasy 14 Naoki Yoshida has confirmed that progress is already underway on the story for the next expansion.

Last year, Final Fantasy 14 finally wrapped up the story it’s been building towards since its relaunch in 2013 with the expansion Endwalker. The story has been developing for almost a whole decade, with four expansions and many patches slowly telling the grand adventure set in Hydaelyn. But according to an interview with NME, Yoshida has already started planning for 7.0, the next expansion.

“The plot for the main scenario in the Patch 6.X series has already been completed and we’ve decided on its conclusion. Currently, script-related work for several patches and work on the detailed plot are underway. In fact, on my end, I’m already deciding on what I envision for 7.0,” said Yoshida in the interview.
