Final Fantasy XIV is officially coming to Xbox Series X|S consoles in the spring of 2024, Square Enix game director Naoki Yoshida and Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer announced during the FFXIV Fan Fest keynote on July 28.
The long-awaited Xbox version of the popular MMORPG is expected to launch following an open beta test scheduled to take place during Patch 6.5, which is expected to hit the live servers in September.
In addition to giving Square Enix an opportunity to monitor the stability of the system, progress from the test is said to be carrying over, so Xbox players are encouraged to sign up and get started early.
